Quad Cities Youth Sports Foundation was founded in 2015 with a single goal, and that was to improve the quality of youth sports in the area. We do this by developing programs dedicated to helping youth in need, recognizing individuals that have made a positive impact on youth sports in the area, providing education and information to the consumer to improve knowledge, conducting all-star caliber events designed to showcase incredible achievements, and to conduct research and collect information during youth sporting events to develop strategies for improvement.
We're always looking for new and interesting ways to enhance youth sports in the Quad Cities. If you'd like to get involved, please contact us at your earliest convenience. Thank you.
