"I have devoted my entire life to kids from my youth at summer recreation centers, on to becoming a teacher, a coach and multi-sport official, and then dedicating my entire adult life to promoting sports for kids. The SNIYF allows me to give back on a national scale in a way I could not previously."

The SNIYF is a young, vibrant company involved in many facets of youth sports, athletics, training, organization, administration and connectivity with those around them. The company currently maintains just four individuals on the go. They work on-site as well as tele-commute to provide excellent service to our clients sometimes 24/7! They are always looking to service the needs of their growing clients in the youth sports community.
The SNIYF is made up from the core nucleus of people famous for taking a small, obscure sports management company from a concept to a multi-million dollars business hosting over 30,000 athletes in various sports from around the world in just seven years. Several members of this company known as Sports Network International (SNI) were constantly tasked with the duty of client interaction for the many youth sports teams that were attending their national athletic competitions year round. The service SNI provided as the nation's leader in special event management has been and continues to be legendary as these individuals would routinely get into the minds of the players, coaches and other league administrators serving millions of youngsters across the country. These people heard their problems, pitfalls and successes in running their leagues. They then became motivated to start a new corporation with a differing set of goals. This company would not host competitions, but it would leverage the knowledge gained working with teams and leagues - and thus, the Sports Network Int'l Youth Foundation was born.
Decades ago, almost all youth athletic programs were run by city governments through their recreation departments. Football, baseball, basketball, soccer, etc. were hosted as a city program run by paid city employees. Largely through liability issues and budget cuts, these programs have been jettisoned by city governments and are now most often run by local, not-for-profit organizations that work in partnership with the cities they serve. Through years of experience, this transition has yielded hard working volunteers seeing the same issues in many different sports and even differing cities. They were crying out for a bigger picture solution that these well-meaning, hard working but often overwhelmed volunteers needed something to help them solve problems and provide better service to their clients. These programs often needed guidance mainly in many areas involving organization and administration. They welcomed the hand-holding approach for travel, competition fairness and education programs/training that became a part of the SNIYF system of support. These items kept their players and coaches on the cutting edge of proper training, coaching techniques, and other player and team safety issues.
Latest research shows that there are literally hundreds of thousands of these programs in the United States alone...and currently, not a single one of these uses a system that tied their progrms together with similar programs in their city. We think this is something the SNIYF can change for the betterment of milions of young athletes, and the businesses and parents that often support them.
The SNIYF main focus is to change the way youth sports are hosted, played and managed around the country. To start our long journey, the expansive competition drill and youth football markets are our starting ground. These two areas were selected because these offered a great diversity in needs, as well as present the largest existing inroads for the SNIYF team through decades of work in these areas through our working partner, SNI. The benefits of the SNIYF tools can and will expand to scores of other areas as we move forward, learning as we go in partnership with our teams.
While currently several hundred programs use the MySchool & MyTeam web sites, as well as the other resources available through the SNIYF family of support. Currently based in both Daytona Beach, Florida and Las Vegas, Nevada, the SNIYF stands poised to revolutionize the neighborhood youth sports market - bringing these groups together through a system that will change the safety, scope and professionalism of the local recreation programs.
