A high impact initiative for student-athletes
Development through "Paying It Forward"
Student-Athletes | Coaches | Athletic Department Staff
Uncommon Sports Group's Clean Out For A Cause® program wants to come alongside you to help host a SAAC competition between your student-athletes and their respective teams or a competition between two colleges/universities.
Contact Mikey Carpenter at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
How does a SAAC competition work?
1. GET YOUR BOX
We will send you individual boxes for each team that can be placed in a location determined by equipment services and your SAAC advisor. Many teams will place them in their locker room or equipment room.
2. FILL IT UP
Maximize the impact of your used/excess apparel & footwear:
• Travel Suits
Teams will compete against each other to donate the most total pounds or total amount of items. The team that wins will receive a monetary donation to donate to a USG-approved charity.
4. SEE YOUR IMPACT
Some items are taken on USG's annual mission trips, while the rest are sold via USG's ecommerce site. 100% of sales help support USG's programs that develop leaders of the sport industry.
