Empowering Sports Leadership


WHAT: The Orange Arrow Symposium in Sports (OASIS) is a groundbreaking event that will transform the sports community by fostering  inclusive and winning teams within organizations. Taking place in Pittsburgh, PA the esteemed “City of Champions,” from July 9th to July 11th, 2024, OASIS promises an unforgettable educational, professional development, and connection experience.

OA’s core mission remains youth-centric, acknowledging the evolving sports landscape. While sports have shifted towards club-based activities, often more diverse than traditional school-based teams, many schools and communities remain divided along racial lines. Orange Arrow created OASIS to address this, targeting leaders who influence young athletes. The aim is to equip these leaders with inclusivity skills and values that young athletes will adopt. By reaching adults who lead athletic organizations, Orange Arrow seeks to expand its reach to more schools and universities, creating a ripple effect of inclusivity.

WHO: OASIS welcomes a diverse audience within and surrounding the sports community, including coaches, referees, sports leaders, and media members. 

WHERE: The event will be held at the University of Pittsburgh.

You all have a knack for making an uncomfortable topic easier to talk about. Thank you!!



I look forward to the OA 12 sessions every weekend, and getting to know the grade school athletes, as well as the other coaches. This has been a highlight of my freshman year here at Pitt.
