Sports2Kids is a website created in 2003 by UC Davis students for Bay Butler's ARE 112 Business Organization class. The website was born out of a partnership with the Sacramento YMCA to obtain new and used sports equipment for the kids who use YMCA services.
Sports2Kids handles the collection of sports equipment from Davis and Sacramento area residents, which is coordinated through the website. This equipment is then passed along to the YMCA.
The YMCA has use for almost any sports equipment, but has specific needs for:
- Soccer balls
- Floor hockey equipment
- T-ball equipment (stands, throw-down bases, etc.)
- Tetherball equipment
- Volley ball equipment
- Jump ropes
- Ping pong tables
- Foosball tables
- Air hockey tables
Sports2Kids operates with the full permission of the Sacramento YMCA.
