Helping Southern Nevada Youth
GET IN THE GAME, ENJOY THE GAME, STAY IN THE GAME!
Our Mission is Simple (but not easy):
Help Southern Nevada Youth Get Active and Stay Active in Sports;
Help Parents & Coaches to Provide Athletes a Fun & Positive Experience;
Help Spread Awareness and Prevention of Youth Sports Safety Issues;
Provide an Outlet of Information on Everything Youth Sports in Southern Nevada!
We are a multifaceted Nevada Not-For-Profit organization that is dedicated to improving all aspects of youth sports in the Southern Nevada area. Founded in March of 2012, we are quickly leading the way to a more Positive and Safe Sports experience for our local children, increasing access to sports related activity and helping to secure the future of our community through our children today!
Our Foundation was created with overall major goal to increase the awareness and prevention of sports related safety issues plus so much more. We want to decrease the number of injuries and/or deaths attributive to these safety issues, increase access to sports related activity and increase the positive experiences of our local youth in sports.
We are implementing several amazing free or low-cost programs that are geared towards teaching coaches, parents and children on the recognition and prevention of all safety issues, not just one or two while putting perspective back on the primary benefits of sports related activity.
All our programs are free or of low-cost to participating children. Some are specifically geared towards at-risk or disadvantaged youth but are they are always open to ALL YOUTH across Southern Nevada.
We are not a league or team, rather we are a place where parents, athletes and coaches can go to for Assistance & Information... By not tying ourselves to just one league, team or sport our programs are setup to help the most number of kids in our community thus pushing the benefit of donations and sponsorships we receive even further. Add in alliances with other youth based non-profits with other focus points and we have a Win-Win for our entire community!
We also strive to provide unparralled access to information on the local happenings and accomplishments from within the local sports community!

Helping Local Youth in the Game:
There are many benefits to sports at an early age that can help to pave a child's way to success in the future as an adult. The first step is getting them active and keeping them active in sports:
Helping Local Youth Enjoy the Game:
The second step is making sure that they have a fun and positive experience. Ensuring that they not only learn the skills at a particular sport but that they also learn core life skills in a safe, fun and positive experience can help to shape our community's future. It takes everyone that is involved with youth sports whether it's the coaches, the parents and even the athletes themselves to reach this goal. To help them in reaching this goal we:
Helping Local Youth Stay in the Game:
The last and probably the most important step is making sure they stay in the game. From Overuse Injuries to Bullying, there are a number of safety issues facing our youth not just in sports but everyday life. Our mission is to help give parents, coaches and athletes the proper tools to recognize and hopefully prevent these issues from happening or letting them get worse.
Who We Are:
We are comprised of a diverse group of dedicated volunteers that is made up from local parents, coaches, teachers, current/former athletes, business leaders and community leaders who all strive for a more Positive and Safe Sports experience for our local children!
