SOUTHERN OREGON SPORTS COMMISSION

The Southern Oregon Sports Commission was formed in 2013 and advocates for sports tourism and the significant economic impact it brings to Medford and the Rogue Valley. The volunteer commissioners focus on three initiatives of sports advocacy, event procurement and venue development. Support of these areas include connecting the local sports community, advocating for facility development, marketing the area regionally and nationally in partnership with Travel Medford, and providing support for new and established events.

75% of youth athletes quit sports by the age of 14. To compound the issue, 80% of rookie referees are quitting after two years. These problems face parents, coaches, athletes and athletic administrators.

Study after study shows the number one reason youth athletes leave a sport is simply because they are no longer having fun. Plus the number one reason referees are leaving their positions is because of the way they are treated by coaches and parents.

SOSC believes these issues can be solved if we commit to changing the culture of youth sports.
