Hello <<First Name>>,
We've been busy growing the network and promoting sports within our community. Part of our efforts for this year are to build relationships with other sports organizations. We are pleased to have partnered with the first annual New York Open, a premier tennis event, this past February, offering discounted tickets to our members. We connected with South Asian Youth Action in Queens, NY and are facilitating ways for youth to play and eventually work in sports. We are also happy to start a relationship with Columbia University's Sports Management program, planting seeds for South Asian sports research.

Do you know an organization we should connect with? Let us know!

Inspire South Asian Youth  

Volunteer an hour of your time to inspire youth to pursue a career in sports at South Asian Youth Action's career fair on May 19th. Please email if you would like to participate.
