STL Youth Sports Outreach
ABC Ball Park is proud to support the efforts of a new organization, STL Youth Sports Outreach
, in its mission to provide sports equipment to families in need with children who wish to participate in organized sports programs.
What is STL Youth Sports Outreach?
Founded in 2015, our mission is:
- To provide lightly-used donated sports equipment to children who otherwise may not be able to play due to the high cost of such equipment.
- To offer a "trade up” program for families to donate outgrown equipment and get gear that is the right size.
STL Youth Sports Outreach is a not-for-profit organization with IRS 501(c)(3) tax exempt status and operated by volunteers.
Why do we exist?
In a day and age where money doesn’t go as far as it used to, STL Youth Sports Outreach seeks to ease the burden on struggling families whose children wish to play organized sports.
We want to make sure no child is denied the chance to play a sport due to the high price of equipment. This helps promote an active and healthy lifestyle for all of our children!
How can you help?
STL Youth Sports Outreach accepts donations of youth sports equipment in good condition:
- Any sport -- baseball/softball, soccer, basketball, golf, football, hockey, etc.
- Any equipment -- bats, balls, gloves, athletic shoes, protective gear, clubs, etc.
As a not-for-profit organization, we’re also looking for individuals and businesses to join with us as sponsors to help offset the costs of operation.

What’s next for STL Youth Sports Outreach?
By spring 2016, we aim to be fully operational with a large inventory of sports equipment for families in need – but in the meantime, if there is a quicker need for a sport playing child, please let us know.
We’re just getting started with an idea that has endless possibilities for the youth of our community – help us by spreading the word:
