For the months of November and December however, Denise Swope, owner of the facility made the decision they were going to work together to do something bigger. Something that would really make an impact not just on the community but for the players as well.

Sports can teach you more than just how to play a game. It also offers many valuable lessons about life such as sportsmanship, social skills, confidence and how to play by the rules. But at one youth sports academy, coaches and administrators go above and beyond to make sure their athletes understand one additional very important lesson; how to give back to the community.

Elite Level Sports Academy in Salt Lake City is an indoor baseball and softball facility for all ages. They believe in showing their players how to care about those around them by donating their time, and resources to those in need.
