PLAY TUSC • Youth Sports

We Need Your Input!

Empower Tusc is partnering with Leadership Tuscarawas to bring life to a new initiative of a Youth Sports Closet that will be geared towards helping area youth overcome hurdles that may prevent them from participating on local sports teams. The primary burden for many being the costs often associated with participation. But, why do we want to encourage our kids to play sports?
We believe that by participating on these teams, our youth will be exposed to a positive atmosphere focused on teamwork, respect, discipline, camaraderie, etc. The hope is that this will deter them from joining potentially negative atmospheres where they could be exposed to unhealthy elements like drug use, depression, violence, etc.
The Leadership Tuscarawas team is currently in the planning phase of the initiative and this is is where you can help! Simply scan the QR code on this photo to take a quick and easy online survey to share your input.
The data collected will be used to determine if the Sports Closet is truly a need for our communities and maybe pinpoint where the need may be the greatest.
Thank you!
