Welcome to the East Side Youth Sports Foundation
As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, East Side Youth Sports Foundation is dedicated to the growth of youth sports on the east side of metro Detroit. Through grants, scholarships and programs, ESYSF is making sports available to all children and providing players important life lessons that will assist them during competition and beyond including good sportsmanship, citizenship, teamwork, physical welfare and more. ESYSF is also using sports to bridge the gap between Detroit and surrounding communities, removing social, economic and racial barriers.

Formerly, East Side Hockey Foundation, ESYSF owns and operates the East Side Hockey Foundation Ice Arena, which it purchased in 2014. The arena has seen thousands of dollars of updates since the acquisition including new nets, rubber flooring, paint and much more. Renovations for the existing locker room showers and three public bathrooms have taken place, to be followed by the lobby renovations. The vision is to not only create an updated facility, but revitalize the area and become a partner with the local community.
