ESYSF Mission and Purpose

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 and Scholarships, and Sports 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.

ESYSF owns and operates The ESH Ice Arena. Since the acquisition in 2014, the arena has seen hundreds of thousands of dollars of updates including a renovated lobby, bathrooms, cooling tower and much more. The vision is to not only create an updated facility, but revitalize the area and become a partner with the local community.
