Our Initiatives

The Sports Authority Foundation was created to serve the Houston community. Along with our hosted events, we wanted to do more to help our community. The Foundation is involved with and supports the following initiatives. 

Houston Sports Awards 

The Houston Sports Awards was created by the Harris County - Houston Sports Authority to celebrate the most accomplished athletes, coaches, teams, contributors, and moments in the Houston Sports Community. The Sports Authority Foundation supports and partners with the Houston Sports Awards


Welcome to BMX 101, a hands-on program that plans to reach 20,020 Houston-area school students in 2020. It's part of the Harris County-Houston Sports Authority's broader BMX outreach that's happening in conjunction with the opening of the new Rockstar Energy Bike Park.


Tidwell Park Redevelopment

Playground funding was provided from the NCAA Men’s Basketball Committee and the 2016 Houston Final Four Local Organizing Committee.  

Hurricane Relief

The Sports Authority Foundation knew they needed to help when Hurricane Harvey devastated the city of Houston. Along with the Harris County-Houston Sports Authority, The Foundation helped serve the city by providing shelter, raising funds, coordinating rescue boats, and much more. The Foundation also helped our friends in Florida by sending a team with supplies, when Hurricane Irma hit just two weeks later. Houston is our city, and we will always be here to lend a helping hand!
