Indy Youth Sports

Indy Youth Sports (IYS) a non-profit organization formed to create a positive and safe environment for youth to enjoy the youth experience, understand the importance of education and impart solid core values via athletics. In today’s urban America, more and more youth between the ages of 5 – 18 years of age are missing out on the youth experience via sports, and communities are suffering for this lack of programming. IYS offers organized sports programs in communities, which contributes to reducing youth crime by empowering and giving young people a positive identity while instilling leadership, teamwork and self governance skills under adult supervision.
