Giving back makes us better sports.
That’s why we’ve created a new sports equipment donation program that will Play-it-forward to underfunded local schools & youth programs, so that more kids can continue to enjoy the social & physical benefits of sport.

How do we do it?

We run Adult Charity Sports Leagues & Tournaments for social-minded adults and then take all proceeds and use it to fund the donations for the local schools and youth programs we've identified as high-needs in KW.
