STAND UP - YOUTH FUND RAISING PROGRAM
American Stand Up was founded by active duty members of
the United States Military while stationed overseas.
Expanding upon the values of their military background, American Stand Up
was built with one mission in mind: Take
care of fighters. With this as our
foundation, we have operated American Stand Up profit-free since Day #1, giving
all profits back to fighters in equipment and sponsorship.
The initial vision of American
Stand Up was to sponsor professional fighters in pursuit of their dreams, but
along the way American Stand Up came across a huge and unexpected problem in
youth Martial Arts. Hidden in towns
and cities across the country were world-class youth athletes that are never
given the opportunity to showcase their skills on the elite stages.
Lack of funding prevents these youth athletes from traveling and
competing in regional, state and national competitions.
This basically means that there are talented and dedicated kids that are
being held back by no fault of their own.
To the leadership team and
American Stand Up, this scenario is totally unacceptable and drove the creation
of the “American Stand Up – Youth Fund Raising Program”.
Knowing that we had the resources and ability to rectify this problem for
many youth athletes, American Stand Up designed the program.
In keeping with American Stand Up philosophy we operate it profit-free.
All proceeds go towards providing travel, equipment and tournament funds
to elite-level youth athletes.
are opening our youth sponsorship program to 50 teams in American (1 in each
state) and will close the program by January 1, 2009. Youth and high
school martial arts, wrestling, and boxing teams are eligible for this
program. If you are interested in applying for this program, please send
an email to youth@AmericanStandUp.com.
