Oregon Sports Authority Foundation


HYI

The Oregon Sports Authority Foundation provides grants and conducts programs to support youth sports activities with an emphasis on both underserved youth and increased physical activity. The Foundation has partnered with the Oregon Sports Authority Advisory Council to produce an annual Fitness and Sustenance Training Camp to promote youth development, healthy lives and social responsibility. The FAST Camp is a special opportunity for area youth to learn about sports, sportsmanship, nutrition, and physical fitness.

The Foundation has also partnered with TrackTown USA to form the TrackTown Youth League offering free all-comer youth track meets around the state, culminating with a championship meet at Hayward Field in Eugene. More than 500 young athletes participated in the inaugural youth league, ranging from beginners to elite competitors. Approximately 200 top finishers advanced to the Championship Meet held under the lights at Hayward Field, coinciding with the 2014 IAAF World Junior Track & Field Championships.

Other Foundation initiatives include the Reward Youth Ticket Exchange program, which has provided more than 12,000 deserving youth the chance to attend Trail Blazers and Winterhawks games, and the successful effort to establish a minimum amount of participation time in physical education for kindergarten through 8th grade Oregon public school students. The Foundation also helped bring the nationally renowned non-profit Playworks to Oregon and continues to support its work to use the power of play to bring out the best in every kid.

Past programs include Healthy Youth Oregon and the successful drive to save PIL spring sports programs in 2003 and PIL golf, tennis and dance in subsequent years.
