Youth Sports Alliance
The Youth Sports Alliance (YSA) introduces kids to sports and inspires them to keep moving throughout their lives. YSA was founded in 2002 to increase the number of children participating in winter sports in Summit and Wasatch Counties following the 2002 Olympic Games. A few years later, YSA added afterschool programming to keeps kids active and off their screens, while also serving as a pipeline to winter sport clubs and competition. In 2014, YSA established the Stein Eriksen YSA Opportunity Endowment, a $2 million need-based scholarship fund for competitive athletes. In 2022, YSA began fundraising for a $2 million Gaddis YSA Endowment to provide funding for expenses affiliated with YSA afterschool programs that traditionally cannot be covered by fees, grants or sponsorships.
