Our Goal is to enrich the lives of 100 kids for six weeks this summer with trained coaches and volunteers who will:

  • Teach Teamwork
  • Foster self-worth
  • Provide opportunities

Our six-week all-day Summer Character Academy will serve 100 kids – more if we can secure the funds. We seek out the kids whose families cannot afford any kind of summer enrichment, so it is extremely important we have funding for our trained coaches and volunteers.

Doors open at 5:30pm, and DJ Direct will liven up our evening.

Location: Divine Savior Church, 9079 Greenback Lane, Orangevale, CA 95662

Keynote Speaker Phil Oates!

Phil’s heart for coaching kids and lost people is amazing.  We are honored he has chosen to spend the evening with us.

A frequent speaker for Rotary, 2030 Club, Christian Business Roundtable and Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Phil focuses most of his professional endeavors toward sports, community and charity. Oates was honored for his impactful contributions to Sacramento’s Positive Coaching Alliance at its Youth Sports Award annual event. We are so grateful for Phil’s support of our mission.

We will also have our Stanford Football Players Jovan Swann and Michael Williams in attendence as they continue to support our mission to serve the Lil’ Pups who need us most. Hear what they had to say at a previous event.

Hear what Kids have to say about The Playmakers.

The Playmakers Character and Leadership Academy is affecting over one hundred students in the Sacramento Region thanks to our many sponsors and volunteers. Our Playmakers-in-training are showing pride in their accomplishments and we are seeing results of improved character and social skills in the classroom. Our goal is to change the culture on school campuses, with our participants spreading a pay-it-forward and respectful attitude on the playground and the classroom. These youngsters are learning that they can learn skill that can make changes in their life at school and at home.
