The LV Sportz Foundation strives to help Southern Nevada Youth Get in the Game, Enjoy the Game & Stay in the Game. We are a 501(c)3 Not-for-profit Charity Organization and our mission is to ensure that every child gets a chance to take part in sports-related activity and to ensure that those activities throughout our great city are as fun, safe and positive as they can be for our children. We can't continue our mission without the support from business like yours.
We are doing a number of great things which would be too long to put here! You can see all the goods things we have been doing by going here: Our History/What We've Been Doing
Our Children Are Our Future! They are our future Leaders and Workforce! Sports has many many benefits when done in the right environment... It has for a long time been a great outlet for children to stay active, fit and healthy. It helps to keep them off the street and helps to fight against obesity, diabetes and premature death. When taught in the right environment, it can also help children to develop core life values and skills like Leadership, Respect, Discipline, Teamwork and much more.
Unfortunately many children drop-out of sports or never even get a chance to participate in the first place. There are several reasons for this: Negative Experiences with Coaches and/or Parents; Burnout and Overuse injuries from early specialization; Too much pressue to perform, win and be ultra competitive at younger ages; Unable to afford it due to family financial situations caused by downtrodden economy; and More.
We have created several unique programs to help ease those pains and strains and by getting involved with the LVSportz Foundation you are helping to pave the way for a brighter, healthier community and will be helping more than just one individual, team or league but the entire youth population here in Las Vegas and throughout Southern Nevada.
By supporting us your donation will be going to benefit a multitude of youth throughout Southern Nevada not just one individual, team or league!
