Replay Sports

11 Years of Passing it, Catching it, Sharing it.

 

The Park Cities community not only has a strong reputation in sports, but a very generous heart for sharing as well.  With these two things in mind, Replay Sports will be hosting its 11th annual equipment collection!  The event will be held on Saturday, August 18th at both Highlander Stadium and at Highland Park Middle School. The event is from 8:00a.m.-12:00p.m.

So it’s time to clean out your closets, attics, and garages! Replay Sports collects used and new equipment, then donates it to young athletes in the Dallas community that may not have access to much-needed sports gear for various reasons.  Since launching in 2007, Replay Sports has collected hundreds of football helmets, shoulder pads, baseball cleats, golf clubs, and many other sporting supplies.  The event has been so successful that they stuffed U-Haul trucks to capacity with sports gear and the spirit of sharing.  Some of the beneficiaries this year will include: Viking Sports, Bridge Lacrosse, First Tee, and Voice of Hope.

This year’s Replay Sports officers are Rhodes Crow, Charlie Wilson, James Wilson, Ben Holsomback, Worthey Wiles, Cannon Thornhill, Ben Smith, Jack Sitzer, and Gabe Galbraith.  The young men of Replay Sports hope that young athletes in need can put all of the equipment donated to good use.  Perhaps being able to participate in a sports program will help these athletes succeed in other aspects of their lives.  So dust off those outgrown and gently used sports items and join us Saturday, August 18th at Highlander Stadium or Highland Park Middle School 8-12!
