Uplift Athletes LEVELs the playing field.

We believe in fostering community, creating opportunities, and supporting every athlete of Central Oregon and beyond. By encouraging inclusivity and a strong work ethic, we give athletes the chance to set their goals, show up, and accomplish their dreams. 

Unfortunately, not every athlete has the resources or support system to reach their full potential. That’s where Uplift Athletes comes in.

The power of opportunity

Sports were designed to bring us together. That’s why we’re here to support both our adult and youth athletes alike and give them an opportunity to shine. The more opportunity someone has to succeed in sports, the more opportunity they have to succeed in life. Uplift Athletes is here to make that a reality for everyone.

the uplift ethos

Our mission as a non-profit is simple: to help athletes succeed. From student-athletes to professionals, our community-supported programs help keep them on the field and focused on positive results. Through long-term athletic development, personal training, athlete pathway travel grants, and more, Uplift Athletes believes in providing equal opportunity for everyone.  

Focus

It’s not always easy to keep training, practicing, and making progress on track. Uplift Athletes makes this possible by inspiring our athletes to stay focused on what’s ahead. No matter how far away your dreams may feel, realigning your focus can turn those dreams into reality one day at a time. Uplift Athletes helps maintain that focus no matter the challenge. 

team building

We’re all in this together. From Uplift’s leadership to our numerous athletes looking for a leg up, when you work with us, you’re part of the Uplift Team. Our community-level support encourages team building initiatives that athletes carry with them long after they’ve stepped off the field, arena, or racecourse. 

Sportsmanship

Sports bring us together and lift us up. That’s why we’re Uplift Athletes. Athletes support each other even when times are tough, or if we didn’t quite get that win. With Uplift, we realign your focus, remind you what team you’re on, and keep things positive. There’s no room for negativity in sports. And we plan on keeping it that way when you join our team. 

Helping student-athletes

Every day, athletes earn a place on the field, court, track, or racecourse. But sometimes they don’t have the support they need to stay there. We do what it takes to even the playing field and help student-athletes reach their full potential. 

Together, we can Uplift the athletes who need it most—both on and off the court, pitch, or field.

uplift’s three tiers of athlete support

bronze trophy, athlete support

Athlete development has to start somewhere. The bronze-level of our athlete support program is how we get athletes on the field or in the gym. This level provides athletes with coverage of fees, memberships, and costs associated with participating in their chosen sport.

silver trophy level, athlete support

silver Level

The silver-level of our athlete support program is how we bring athletes to the next level. Whether that’s aiding support that covers training programs, equipment needs, and local travel to races or events, silver-level generates an opportunity for long term athlete success.

gold trophy level, athlete support

gold level

The gold-level is our highest level in the athlete support program. Sometimes, an opportunity isn’t cheap. And it’s not always easy. The gold-level covers athlete travel grants, elite training programs, and professional support when the podium or championship is just one win away.
