Orange Arrow trains and supports college student-athletes to coach grade school student-athletes off the field. Participants develop the skills, healthy dispositions, and expanded social connections that help them aim for success in the game of life.

College student-athletes gain confidence as leaders and learn by coaching off-field performance. Grade school student-athletes engage directly with their mentors through a competition-based curriculum that focuses on: 

Skill Development

related to communication, collaboration,
and leadership

Healthy Dispositions

like kindness, social intelligence, and self-control

Social Connectivity

broadened comfort zones, and diverse, cross generational relationships 

OA programs are housed in college athletic departments at Power 5 conference universities.

Deep community partnerships support year-round programming in-person or virtually.

OA 12

connects college student-athletes with local schools for twelve success skills sessions during the academic year.

OA Field Events

a series of enrichment experiences, events, and arts and culture trips spread throughout the school year. 

OA Performance Invitational

brings students together for a summer academy in conjunction with the local university.

Student-athletes and parents love OA.

More than 225 college student-athletes have been a part of the OA experience since 2016. Many continue to engage as alumni and say OA has had a lasting impact on their lives.

OA is currently active in multiple great sports cities.

Our goal is to expand to 15 Universities by 2026. 

There are many ways to get involved and help young athletes aim for success off the field.

“In a culture that pushes sports and academics, other important facets of child development are often overlooked. OA  closes this gap while emphasizing essential values such as hard-work, determination, and leadership in a competitive team-oriented environment. I’m thankful OA has given my teammates and me a platform to make our community a better place.”
