Sponsor A Team

Sponsor A Team

Thank you for your interest in supporting the youth!

By contributing, you are able to have a continued connection with the mentors and youth. Your contribution helps us to continue to invest in the lives of the youth and their communities. Support is a one year commitment, to match the one year mentorship program for the kids, and can be almost any amount.

The funds go towards the kids and their mentors and will be geared towards keeping them involved in the program for the next year. It may be things like money to the mentors (who are able to use the funds as their team needs), healthy snacks at league, transportation, among other things. You can also provide in-kind donations that goes to the direct, specific need of each team (i.e cleats, uniforms, school supplies, etc).
