What percent of donations is used for compensation?

$0.00 annually is used for compensation because we are a volunteer based organization. 100% of every dollar donated is used to support the programs we run for at-risk youth.

What sports do we play?

We have played many sports and do not have a limit in terms of what we use to impact the youth. Taking a look at the region and volunteer skill set determines the sports we use.

Our primary sports we use are basketball, soccer, football and dodge-ball. we are always open to new sports and welcome any suggestions.

Do volunteers have to be good at sports?

We welcome volunteer from all backgrounds of life and no sports skill-set is required. We work with youth down to age 4 so for those who may not be skilled in a particular sport they can work with the younger population.

There are also many roles at the events that help the overall success of the program like checking people in, organizing the items and helping clean up.
