About Us

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 also strive to provide unparralled access to information on the local happenings and accomplishments from within the local sports community!
