Youth Sports Organization

Twenty-five percent of Austin Metro youth participated in organized sports last year, compared with 85 to 90 percent in the suburbs. Currently, there are 40,000 children in the Austin Metro area between the ages of 6 to 14. In contrast to the metro area, the suburbs have a full array of youth sports with strong financial support. This late start for urban children in organized sports robs them of the opportunity for physical activity, coaching, being part of a team, learning skills, and substantial time away from "negative recreation" (drugs, violence or sexual activities).

Clinical studies also show that sports and recreation programs can help youth establish lifelong, healthy, physical activity patterns. Regular physical activity can ward off life-threatening diseases; reduce feelings of depression and anxiety; help control weight and obesity; and build and maintain healthy bones, muscles, and joints, according to the President's Council on Physical Fitness.

The children in the city's core must have the opportunity for a successful start in education and sport regardless of age, race, gender, family composition, income or community. In response to this significant disparity, United Youth Sports will be created to provide the sports program necessary for Austin Metropolitan children to have equal opportunity for organized sports.

UYS will be in search of grants, sponsors and corporate partners to organize sports and physical activity programs to promote healthy development in youth.

With this base of support, United Youth Sports will raise additional money from program sponsors and fundraising campaigns.

United Youth Sports aspires to be an outstanding youth sports organization that provides a high-quality experience to every athlete. A high-quality experience is one in which every athlete:

- Is coached using the principles of Positive Coaching
- Has fun
