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 125 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 two great sports cities: Pittsburgh and Miami. 

Our goal is to expand to 15 Division 1 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.”
