Review for Excel Youth Sports Foundation Inc, Buckeye, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Excel Youth Sports was started three years ago by two young men who had a vision to bring a cost effective sports program to the valley that developed character in young athletes. They would accompish this by finding quality coaches and hold them accountable to certain guidelines. They started in 2007 with 64 athletes and have grown to over 1000 athletes per season. Our long term vision is to have our own facilities where we could not only hold quality leagues, but run camps and after school programs to better benefit the youth. We hold strong to Christian values that we have learned through God's word.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have devoted countless hours and personal money to see it grow.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Depend more on God and less on myself.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

they have high integrity and care about others.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

professional athletes, inner city at risk teens, high school honor students, quality coaches, and great partnership programs like Arch.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Create a larger scholarship fund for youth and parents who can't afford sports, build a quality facility where we hire quality people to run it and continue to run camps and leagues at an affordable rate.

Ways to make it better...

I would have spent some nights letting go of my ideas and focusing more on my family.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Staying organized and generating enough income to keep us afloat. We get bounced checks every season and have rising gym costs, official costs, and equipment costs.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I love watching young athletes gain confidence so they can go out and impact the world in a positive manner. They don't have to be the best athlete but learn what it takes to work with a team, compete, and look after the needs of others.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Board Member & I was one of the two men that started this program.
