MIAMI LAKES, Fla. (www.orangebowl.org) —Now in its 15th season, the Orange Bowl Youth Football Alliance (Orange Bowl YFA) presented by Sports Authority visited Big Mound Park on Saturday, September 28, as part of its Park of the Week Program. The Orange Bowl YFA Park of the Week program presented by Sports Authority recognizes select youth football parks across South Florida each Saturday during the fall to show its continued support to the community.
This past Park of the Week schedule included a visit to Big Mound Park in Indiantown, Fla., to honor five Glades Tri-City Youth Athletic League members – the Ft. Pierce Ravens, Ft. Pierce Seminoles, Indiantown Thunderbirds, Okeechobee Lil Brahams and Muck City Browns.
At each stop during its Park of the Week program, Orange Bowl members, ambassadors and staff distribute promotional items and discounts from official Orange Bowl YFA sponsors and present each park with a commemorative plaque and a financial contribution towards park improvements. A coach nominated from each visited team also receives a coach’s kit provided by Sports Authority.
More than 16,000 young football players and cheerleaders in 10 football leagues across eight South Florida counties directly benefit from the Orange Bowl YFA presented by Sports Authority. More than $5 million has been invested by the Orange Bowl Committee in youth sports in South Florida since 1999. In addition to its continued support of the Orange Bowl YFA presented by Sports Authority, the Orange Bowl directly supports locally-based festivals and events, including those that provide participatory opportunities to youth from all over the world. These events include the Junior Orange Bowl, Orange Bowl International Youth Regatta, Orange Bowl Lacrosse Classic, Orange Bowl International Tennis Championships, Orange Bowl Swim Classic and Orange Bowl Paddle Championships, among many others.
Celebrating its 80th anniversary, the Orange Bowl has been one of South Florida’s leading civic organizations, driving tourism and economic development, while supporting scholarships and community athletic facilities.
