Mission Statement

We want to use sports as a vehicle for the positive development of student-athletes where sports-learned values such as Mindfulness, Exceptionalism, Responsibility, Integrity, Teamwork, and Sportsmanship. Development of student-athletes' relationship-building skills and an advancement of their growth mindset, will enable them to take on challenges and learn from them. We want to provide meaningful opportunities to help students process their dreams into the reality of higher education success.

SHOTS UP Shoot-A-Thon

 Each player will collect pledges from people that want to help achieve the player’s HOOP DREAMS. These people will sign up to pay a pledged fee for each free-throw made (out of 100) free throw attempts. Once the 100 free throws have been shot and the number of made free throws is determined, the player will collect the pledge money from those who sponsored them. Remember, people can also choose to make a flat amount 

TTY Athletic Fund

Our hope is to collect monetary donations as well as  the donation of used/excess sporting equipment.. Monetary donations can be done through PayPal below. 

These donations allow us to allocate funds saved by offering scholarships to pay registration fees for sports teams.

Damon “Coach D” Davis Memorial Scholarship

The Damon “Coach D” Davis Memorial Scholarship has been established by the Executive Board of TeachThemYoungER in honor of one of the organization’s founding members, Coach D, who tragically lost his life on March 9, 2019. The intention is to provide financial support to student-athletes who are training in the areas of athletics and are committed to the goal of improving academically and athletically. It is their hope that, through this scholarship, his memory will continue to live on and support student-athletes to continue their dream of participating in athletic competition at an institution of higher learning. Please  give to TTY Athletic Fund and support the Damon “Coach D” Davis Memorial Scholarship.
