UCLA 'Hoops For Youth' Program Returns

The innovative "Hoops for Youth" program, which enables underprivileged children to attend UCLA men's and women's basketball games at historic Pauley Pavilion, is seeking donations for the 2017-18 season.

The program is chaired by UCLA basketball legend Ann Meyers Drysdale and is run by the Los Angeles Sports Council Foundation in partnership with the UCLA Athletic Department.

"UCLA basketball is in my blood. I know how magical it is to be part of the tradition of UCLA basketball and I want others to have the opportunity to experience that tradition first-hand as well," she said.

Now entering its third year, Hoops For Youth is funded through tax-deductible contributions from individuals and corporations. Each $25 donation enables a youngster to attend a game; UCLA Athletics distributes the tickets to youth groups affiliated with the athletic department. (Pursuant to NCAA recruiting requirements, tickets are made available only to youth in the 6th grade or below.)

Meyers Drysdale was a member of the 1976 U.S. Olympic team and the Bruins' 1978 women's national championship team. She is enshrined in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

"For most of these kids it will be their first opportunity to see a college basketball game in person or to set foot on the UCLA campus," said UCLA Director of Athletics Dan Guerrero.

Anyone interested in contributing to Hoops for Youth should call (213) 482-6333.

The Los Angeles Sports Council is a non-profit civic organization whose primary purpose is to promote economic development through sports in the Los Angeles/Orange County area.

On behalf of the community, the Sports Council bids against other cities for the right to host major sporting events, often staging or helping to stage events after successful bids.

Founded in 1988, the Sports Council's efforts represent more than $1 billion in overall economic impact for the region and range from NCAA Championships to the Super Bowl, and from the U.S Olympic Trials to the World Cup.

The Council also works in support of each of the area's established sports teams and facilities.
