Purpose and Activities

The LA84 Foundation is a nationally recognized leader in support of youth sport programs and public education about the role of sports in positive youth development. The foundation, with 30 years of on-the-ground experience, has supported thousands of Southern California youth sports organizations through grant making, while also training coaches, commissioning research, convening conferences and acting as a national thought leader on important youth sports issues. LA84 levels the playing field so that sport is accessible to all children, while elevating the field of youth sports as an integral part of American life.


Established in 1982 in CA - The foundation is endowed with surplus funds from the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games. The foundation supports a wide array of youth sports programming. It awards grants to youth sports organizations within the eight southernmost counties of California. It also conducts its own youth sports and coaching education programs, a number of which have become models for similar programs nationwide. The LA84 Foundation operates the largest sports research library in North America. It is a state-of-the-art research facility and learning center dedicated to the advancement of sports knowledge and scholarship. The foundation also maintains a sizable collection of historic sport art and artifacts much of which was inherited from the former Helms Sports Halls of Fame
