The Sports4Life Foundation was formed to enrich the lives of athletes by providing athletic opportunities to help reach their individual potential and develop a lifelong passion for sports. We strongly believe sports are a positive influence and can provide a valuable education in leadership, teamwork and competition.

“The most memorable experience I can think of is committing to the school of my dreams and being able to play the sport I love in college. I want to be a nurse, and going to a private school out of state was insanely expensive. This [Sports4Life] scholarship took the burden off my shoulders and made it possible to live out my dream. I am going to be in the nursing program and playing college hockey. It’s all I could ever ask for.”
I overloaded myself with work, school, athletics, and social life. I play high school softball along with club hockey and I wasn’t going to play this year because I had to work to be able to pay for college. Having this [Sports4Life Scholarship] opportunity, I am now able to play my senior season and not stress myself out as much. I can focus on my studies, and for once have free time for myself. This is an opportunity of a lifetime and I am forever grateful to have it.”
