Address:

Po Box 20777 Oklahoma City OK 73156 USA

Mission:

To influence at-risk youth by encouraging their full potential through athletics and positive role models.

Programs:

Our primary focus currently is to provide athletic equipment, uniforms, and similar items to oklahoma city area schools and organizations that lack funding for extracurricular activities and sports. During 2014 we made grants to 7 oklahoma city area schools.

the foundation held a one day football camp for youth ages 7-14. Local coaches and community leaders volunteered to coach the campers through drills, motivational speeches, and scrimmages. Volunteers worked to provide the kids with lunch, t-shirts, drinks throughout the camp, a meal on their way home, as well as a goodie bag of snacks and sports/health related items. The foundation had a total of approximately 60 volunteers and between 200-300 students who attended the camp.

the foundation co-hosted banquets for the okcps coaches, held 2 times per year. At the spring banquet a number of awards are given to outstanding coaches and athletes. In addition, we purchased lunches for the okcps coaches at 3 different clinics. The clinics offer an opportunity for the coaches to receive technical training for their sports, as well as learn about social services available to them and their student athletes. Also, the foundation funded the curriculum materials for the inaugural year of the elevate program for the okcps middle schools and high schools. Elevate is a 10 week program that teaches and rewards positive character traits, taught to the student athletes, facilitated by the coaches.
