Baltimore, we need your help!
Play With Purpose
We play so kids can play for free! It’s what sets us apart. Where else do you have the opportunity to play a game with your friends, meet new people, while making a positive change in your community?
Together we make a difference, but there is more we can do! The need for free quality leagues for Baltimore’s youth grows more and more every day. The best part is, we make it easy for you to donate! In addition to the traditional methods, you can donate through Venmo: @volocity-kids, or online at kidsweek.volocityfoundation.org
Did you know that 70% of kids quit sports due to high costs, excessively competitive environments, and the pressure to specialize too early? Your donation will go towards equipment, fields, curriculum development, referees, team t-shirts, and healthy meals for every Volo Kid! Whether you donate time, skill, or money, know that you are actively making a difference. You are changing lives and improving your community
OUR GOAL IS
For the Winter 2018 Season
Winter Kids Week Events
The goal is simple: Get it in the hole!
How it works:
Players sign up individually. There will be 8 rounds of play (fewer if we get a winner sooner!). Round one players will have 8 bags (aka 8 chances) to get a bag in the hole. Players who score move on to the next round. Round 2-8 a bag will be taken away each round (round 2: 7 bags, round 3: 6 bags, etc), giving players fewer chances to score and increasing the competition!
ONLY $5 TO ENTER – Last player standing WINS half the pot of money. The other half goes directly to the kids!
Where to Play:
High Roller Competition
The goal is : Get the highest skeeball score!
How it works:
Players sign up individually. Each player gets one round of skeeball (9 balls) to score the highest score possible. Whoever scores the highest points in one round, wins!

WE PLAY SO KIDS CAN PLAY FOR FREE
What is the Volo City Kids Foundation?
The Volo City Kids Foundation provides free youth sports programming to kids ages 6-12 across the nation. We remove barriers to entry by making our services free of cost to the kids and families we serve. In addition to the weekly practice and game coaching, we provide postgame meals that give players and parents the opportunity to meet others within the community as well as connect with our volunteers. The best part? We make it easy to connect you with your community – as simple as Click. Play. Enjoy.
Since our inception in 2015, we have engaged over 700 kids and have impacted the lives of over 3,000 kids all over the United States!
Not only do our volunteers get to play and teach kids a sport for an afternoon, but they also get to play in any Volo City league for free. Yes, you read that right- FREE leagues for volunteers! Can’t make it to a league? There are SO many other ways to get involved! Everything from donating to participating in Kids Week events supports the Volo City Kids Foundation. For more information on what you can do, please see your league’s host, check out www.volocityfoundation.org, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
