UW Athletics Helps Youth League Replace Damaged Gear

A Wisconsin nonprofit will continue offering youth football thanks in part to the help of the UW-Madison athletic department.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Monday that the UW worked with several equipment providers to outfit East Side Youth Athletics after a 2019 fire damaged the organization’s storage facility, ruining all helmets and jerseys.

“Since the fire happened, we have been worried that we may not be able to continue assisting our families and neighbors by coaching football and helping to teach our kids the values of hard work, self-determination, team work and discipline into the growing foundation of Madison’s north and east sides,” East Side Youth Athletics director Steele Morton said. “We’ve been trying to recover from that (fire) and the pandemic over the last year.”
