A Divine spark to connect people and catapult dreams
UPSWING Foundation was founded in 2020 by Harmony and Jason Myers as a Colorado based nonprofit with a Vision to connect people and catapult dreams.
We know access to sports, education and other opportunities is too often limited by barriers such as socioeconomic factors. We also know all kids should have an equal opportunity to experience sports, to learn and grow, to connect with others, and to discover and pursue their dreams.
Our Mission is to develop strong, confident, successful student-athletes who are able to give back to their communities in meaningful ways. We can do that by crushing barriers which limit access.
What We Do
Where access to sports and other opportunities are often limited by socioeconomic factors, we work to crush those barriers by:
- Developing high-quality programming to support athletes, their families and our communities
- Creating world-class amateur sports campuses which integrate multiple sports, fields, training and educational spaces
- Ensuring access to programming and facilities through dedicated scholarship and support programs
- Partnering with and supporting likeminded organizations to create opportunities for aspiring athletes and our communities
