About SportsChallenge

Formed in 1996, SportsChallenge Leadership Academy is an educational nonprofit that develops and empowers the next generation of leaders through residental summer programs and school-year workshops.  We train a highly diverse group of student-athletes, coaches and adult leaders from all over the country who in turn positively impact their programs, schools and communities.  All told, SportsChallenge has directly impacted over 4,500 students and educators from over 40 states and seven countries.

The 2015 Summer Leadership Academy Scholarship Drive

Former Executive Director Jeremy Edward's gave 20 years of top-quality service to the Sports Challenge Leadership Academy.  We're honoring him this year by raising money for student-athletes to gain invaluable skills at our Summer Leadership Academy.
