Join the LA84 Foundation at its 5th annual Youth Sports Summit at the JW Marriott L.A. Live in Los Angeles on October 27, 2016. This year's event theme is: "Playing Forward: The Present and Future of Youth Sports," and will serve as a platform to highlight LA84’s commitment to leveling the playing field for all children, while reinforcing the importance of youth sports in the minds of policy makers and the public.
NBC4 General Assignment Reporter Lolita Lopez will moderate a panel on girls in sports, while other topics include the youth sports dropout issue and tangible ways the community can work to level and elevate the field of youth sports.
The LA84 Foundation promotes the power of sports to change lives and has positively impacted more than 3 million under-served and under-resourced youth, over 2,200 organizations and 75,000 coaches.
