Rochester Sports Foundation grant to Sports Mentorship Academy

March 15, 2023

Rochester Sports Foundation (RSF) is proud to share, in coordination with the Mayo Clinic, that we presented Sports Mentorship Academy (SMA) Executive Director Andre Crockett a grant of $5,000 to assist in facility rental for his organization. 

Crockett shared, “This grant will expand SMA reach to the youth that have been affected by the closure of the Rochester YMCA.  To accomplish this, we at Sports Mentorship Academy, are collaborating with Rochester Empowerment Center and Rochester Public School to create a Recreational Center at Gage East adjunct to the elementary school.” 

Through this collaboration youth will have access to facility space weekly focusing on sports- related activities and social skills to build character. These skills are taught during a four-hour period between 3:30-7:30pm.  This is scheduled purposefully at times of the day when the temptation to engage in crime and drug activities is at the greatest. 

The funds will be used for the leasing the building, upgrades, and purchasing of equipment. RSF grant fund is based on donated dollars and the profits from the annual Rochester Sports Banquet sports auction. 100% of these funds go directly to facility enhancement in Rochester.
