for kids to achieve their dreams


those who  need it most


Inspiration to  our youths

The cost of participating in sports leagues and activities is increasing every year. School athletic programs have cut out sports due to budget constraints and many schools now charge a fee to athletes just to participate in their programs. This leaves many kids without any chance of ever taking part in the sport they love. Young Athletes Relief Fund is working hard to change this one child, one school and one community at a time.

Reaching out to level the playing field in all communities

Started in 2013, Young Athletes Relief Fund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization for youths that can't afford to play sports or activities. Through fundraising events and your contributions, we can also help our young athletes play and not just sit and watch. And they can receive scholarships to further their education. We're also taking big steps to help those schools that don't have the financial resources to better their athletic departments.

Join us in helping us reach out to kids who are less fortunate than others. Many have great athletic talent but don't have the chance to show it on the field for a team, club or school they love. Participation in sports also helps them learn valuable lessons, helps fight against childhood obesity and perform better in academics.

Meet Mike Martinez!  Mike stepped up to the plate and is the President of the South Mountain Little League in South Phoenix.  After having their field vandalized earlier this year from the scoreboard damaged, outfield fence stolen, and even the underground pipe field sprinkler stolen!
