Giving back is essential. It’s who we are as a foundation. Sow means planting seeds; thanking those who led us by paving the way for those who follow us. We show our gratitude by paying it forward. We have several charitable efforts to impact players, teams, and communities. The more we give, the more we can grow. Join us by donating finances, time, skill, equipment or by simply sharing our mission.

“Pop Up & Play” clinics are uniquely designed, open house style events. This means you can pop in whenever- 2 minutes, 20 minutes, 2 hours, no problem! Stay for as long or as little as you want. Each participant receives a stick and ball which have a special surprise to continue the fun at home. We host new clinics every month all over Hampton Roads!

2022 Year in review

Gearing up for more grassroots

2022 was our biggest year to date with three new grassroots sites in Chicago and Connecticut, five free clinics across various cities, and over 100 donated sticks! We also wanted to highlight the weeklong summer camp held with Crestwood Intermediate last summer which reached over 65 students from kindergarten through 5th grade. Every student learned the basics and earned a free stick! Thank you to all of our donors and supporters for helping us grow the game!
