OXFORD, Ohio - Throughout the summer Miami Athletics has cultivated several relationships with local youth leagues in the surrounding Butler county community. By building partnerships through the energy and passion of our student-athletes in the community, we seek to instill positive attitudes and behaviors in youth through the lessons in sports. It is about positive coaching, sportsmanship, maximizing talents, and embracing diversity.

“Working with the local youth groups is rewarding for the youth but also for our student-athletes. Our student athletes have the opportunity to pass along the knowledge and lessons they have learned to a younger generation. It’s fun to see these same youth attend a football game in the fall and have them cheer on those same student athletes,” states Dan Clark, Sales and Service Manager

Miami Athletics embraces youth sports throughout the surrounding communities. This past weekend, the freshman football student-athletes spent time with youth in South Dearborn for their Football Family Fun Day.  

“Miami’s involvement in our Family Fun Day has become a tradition we look forward to each year. Our kids look up to the Miami student athletes and enjoy the chance to learn the fundamentals of the game from them. Thank you to everyone at Miami who has assisted making this a successful yearly event.” Doug Otto, President of South Dearborn Youth Football.

South Dearborn’s Youth Football team will be among several youth teams at the annual YOUTH DAY which has been slated for the Homecoming Game at Yager Stadium on October 19th.  Group ticket options are available for all youth teams interested in attending. Groups will also have the opportunity to be a part of the Fan Tunnel and welcome the team onto the field!
