Members of the Warsaw Sports Business Club put on two marquee events every Spring. These events provide an excellent experiential learning platform in the areas of sponsorship, marketing, and operations, as well as broader event planing and leadership experience.
KIDSPORTS Invitational: The KIDSPORTS Invitational is an annual 3 on 3 basketball tournament for boys and girls in 5th-8th grade. The tournament is held at Matthew Knight Arena where participants compete as well as meet some of the University of Oregon's student-athletes. Tournament proceeds are donated to the Emerald Scholarship Fund and the Stephen Dember Memorial Scholarship Fund. More information can be found by clicking here.
Youth Movement: Founded in 2012 and inspired by Nike N7, Youth Movement is an annual interactive field day event for Native American youth across the state of Oregon, and the United States. The kids who participate receive a full day of competitive team sports while utilizing the incredible facilities at the University of Oregon. This event, put on by WSBC students, is now entering its 6th year and continued growth is on the horizon, with a total of 6 universities participating. The University of Oklahoma & Oklahoma State University became the first, and University of Washington, Oregon State University, and Southeastern Oklahoma State University will be participating in this year’s Movement as well.
The Movement is truly evolving and expanding, and we hope to continue spreading Youth Movement’s mission to even more universities. While growing across the country is an incredibly exciting development, we are hoping to continue spreading our mission across the state of Oregon in 2016. The potential is limitless.
