Every weekend, millions of kids play youth sports. Even more impressive are the legions of people who volunteer their time to make these games happen.

Unfortunately, many youth sports teams and athletic associations are currently experiencing a funding crisis. That is why Adirondack Fleece has started its Get in the Game Campaign. Each month, they will profile an organization on their website in order to help raise awareness of their team, their accomplishments and their need for critical funding. They will also be running a series called “Coach ‘Em Up” profiling dads and moms that are involved in their children’s sporting lives.

Participating in the Get in the Game Campaign is simple. All you have to do is complete the Nomination Form.

In addition, I am giving away a package of 17 custom embroidered fleece blankets with the logo of the youth sports team or athletic association of your choosing. You can use these blankets as fund-raiser or as a thank you gift for your volunteers and/or players.

To enter the contest, leave a comment answering the following question: What is your most memorable youth sports experience as a player, volunteer, or spectator?
