Your donation directly supports the personal development of young and college student-athletes as influencers to the world.
Orange Arrow Players Association is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that prepares student-athletes for success in life. We provide engaging, sports-themed programming to develop winners outside of the sports realm. We emphasize essential values such as hard work, determination, and leadership, while maintaining a competitive, team-oriented environment.
Our individual donors provide the fuel for this life-changing work. Any donation is appreciated, and specific amounts can be donated to fund certain areas. A scholarship for an entire school year of life skills development is $600; a $125 donation provides students with an arts & culture experience; and a $30 donation sponsors nutrition for a life skills session.
Thank you for your generosity!

hear from an oa college student-athlete intern
“Working as an Orange Arrow intern was much more than gaining experience – it involved positively changing children’s lives for the better to prepare them for their futures. Helping the children grow also helped me grow as well, and I will be able to take a lot of what I learned and use it in the real world.”
