Mission Statement


Non-Profit for Community Athletes functions as an organized sports club that encourages community service and promotes affirmative social skills along with sports skills so that our athletes are prepared to step into their future and create a positive impact in the world. These intentions are reached by using a variety of activities to support athletes on a one-on-one basis; to attain their goals through team sports; and to give athletes and their families opportunities to shine both in and out of their sporting arenas.

A MISSION:Non-Profit for Community Athletes uses sports as a means for improving the quality of the community by promoting athleticism, volunteerism, leadership, citizenship and sportsmanship.

When girls are involved in team sports they have higher self-esteem and end up making better life choices for themselves. A higher percentage of female athletes will NOT be involved in drugs, are less likely to be a pregnant teen, are more likely to stay in high school PLUS further their eduction. All of these things lead them to being better citizens of our communities....making our communities better for all of us.


ABOUT PITCH FOR THE CURE (www.pitchforthecure.org):

Pitch for the Cure is a program of the Non-Profit for Community Athletes, a charitable organization registered in Arkansas. This annual charity event began in 2006 and hosts girls fastpitch teams from a far-reaching regional area surrounding Northwest Arkansas. More than 10,000 players, coaches, fans, vendors, umpires and volunteers from at least 6 states are present at each Pitch for the Cure weekend. Five ballparks in three NWA cities are used to play out 600+ tournament games in Springdale, Fayetteville and Rogers, AR. The event is presented in special partnership with Susan G. Komen for the Cure Ozark Affiliate. Funds raised through the event will support other programs of the Non-Profit for Community Athletes as well as Susan G. Komen for the Cure Ozark Affiliate. These additional global ambitions assist in connecting regional youth to fight against breast cancer and empower girls to be active for change in their communities and making a difference in society. Since creating and presenting the first event in 2006, Pitch for the Cure has raised $155,000 for Komen Ozark. These funds include donations of at least 20% of profits from each annual event along with donations that are specifically dedicated 100% to Komen from special weekend activities occurring at each event.
