OKCPS Elementary School Students Get Active With the YMCA

C4K is honored to take part in another season for the YMCA OKCPS Elementary Sports Program this winter! Thanks to this collaborative partnership between Cleats for Kids, OKCPS and the YMCA of Greater Oklahoma City, over 450 kids were able to join a basketball or cheer team.

Our staff and volunteers were on hand this past Saturday to hand out shoes to teams from across the district. For some of these athletes, this was their first time participating in a team sport. Excitement was running high and excited families were filling the stands!

“Our partnership with the YMCA creates an amazing opportunity for some of our city’s youngest athletes to start on a path of an active lifestyle,” Allyson Meyer, Director of Operations at C4K, explained. “These kids deserve to experience the life lessons that sport provide no matter their financial circumstance. We are so thankful to the YMCA for their support of young Oklahomans."
