Presentation:
 
Jim Miller- Youth Sports Foundation (YSF)
 
Mission Statement- The Youth Sports Foundation was created to help provide opportunity and means by which any child in 3rd-7th grade can actively participate in an organized sport that values personal integrity, team, and leadership skills, in a fun and healthy learning environment.
YSF has been in operation for 27 years. New to the program this year, YSF is adding Lacross.  Covid was tough on the program, but they made it through and have returned to 2019 participation numbers.
Football is the most prominent program with over 6500 kids.
YSF provides all equipment to participants through donations. There is a registration fee, but no child will be turned away, so scholarships are available.
Notable YSF Alum: Tyler Linderbaum, Trevor Penning, and George Kittle.
YSF appreciates the support they receive from the community and law enforcement.
