Arizona Youth Soccer Association is pleased to announce that we have been selected as a participant in the MaxInMotion® Foundation for the sixth year in a row (2017/18). CLICK HERE for more information on how to apply.
About MaxInMotion® Foundation: MaxInMotion® provides much needed financial assistance to youth sports programs for underprivileged children and for the development of programs to include special needs populations in youth sports activities. Research shows that participation in youth sports enhances community values, interdependency, and collective responsibility. Physical fitness prevents childhood obesity and has also been linked to reducing school dropout rates, teen pregnancy and high-risk behaviors, all of which pose tremendous consequences to our society. MaxInMotion® has developed partnerships with other youth sports organizations, including Coyotes Charities, the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation, Phoenix Suns Charities and the Arizona Bridge to Independent Living (ABIL). MaxInMotion® was founded in memory of Max Shacknai, who embodied the ideal young athlete: passionate, hardw orking, and incredibly committed to his teammates.

Max Shacknai was the inspiration for MaxInMotion®. Max was a young, talented athlete who tragically lost his life in July 2011. His love of sports, soccer in particular was known throughout the youth sports community. Inspired by his energy, spirit and commitment, MaxInMotion® is a not-for-profit foundation dedicated to providing young athletes an opportunity to compete at both the recreational and competitive levels in major youth sports.
