The Bullpen Foundation was started by a small group of community and business leaders in North Alabama with a passion to strengthen our communities, neighborhoods and families through positive youth athletic programs and leagues.

Team sports participation from children ages 6-12 has declined almost 15 percent nationwide since 2012, and multiple studies show that America’s youth continue to be less active. These statistics are concerning as we know the benefits of youth sports are more than just physical fitness. Teamwork, respect, communication, leadership, time management and a sense of community are essential life skills that can be learned at an early age through team sports.

Our Foundation was established to work alongside community park associations across Huntsville and Madison County to identify opportunities to increase park participation and have a positive team experience for kids in our community.

Our mission is to help disadvantaged children play youth sports on a level playing field and provide impactful resources such as player financial scholarships, sports equipment, camps and clinics, and park volunteers.

So many people in our community have been touched by sports at some point in their lives – as a player, a parent, or a coach. We believe that the connection between our business community and the recreational parks can be very meaningful and impactful to our youth.
