What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

No Youth Athlete Left Behind

As both coaches and parents, we have seen an increase in the number of children who are turned away from having a chance to participate in youth sports because the parents just can't afford it. The cost for registration, equipment and uniforms have increased dramatically over the past decade. While the leagues try their best to keep costs down, the fees incurred by the leagues are always being increased. Things such as insurance, field and referee costs have gone up substantially and all are necessary to run a league. Coupled with the current economy, it has made it hard for leagues, coaches and parents alike.

When funds are available we can help pay for underprivileged youth to participate in youth sports programs throughout Southern Nevada and provide them with the proper safety equipment like helmets, pads, mouthpieces and more...

The LV Sportz Foundation is committed to ensuring the safety of Southern Nevada children on local sports fields and courts. As part of that commitment, we are dedicated to collaborating with our local medical professionals to provide accessible and affordable PPE's that are in-depth and include a number of added features that are needed to help prevent tragedy from striking our community.

Several times throughout the year we work those in the local medical field to provide unparrelled access to basic and advanced screenings. It is recommend by the NATA, the American Academy of Pediatricians and the American Heart Association that every child has an annual Pre-Participation Physical Exam (PPE or Sports Physical) prior to participating in strenuous exercise or competitive sports, regardless if it is mandatory or not, to prevent sudden cardiac death and other major health issues in local youth athletes.

A PPE can help identify congenital heart defects that can lead to SCA as well as any other musculoskeletal, spinal, dermatological or other health problems or risk factors a child may have. A PPE is different from a standard physical. The PPE specifically focuses on a child’s well-being as it relates to playing a sport. It's more limited than a regular physical, but it's a lot more specific about athletic issues.

It's estimated that more than 100 young athletes die each year in sports-related incidents, and the National Athletic Trainers' Association projects that nearly half of those deaths are attributed to sudden cardiac death. Some causes include hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) which involves the thickening of the heart muscle, forcing the heart to work harder to pump blood. Along with other cardiac problems, HCM is the overwhelming cause of sudden death in young athletes.
