Spurs and Pizza Hut team up for Spurs Youth Basketball League

I saw the ad featuring Devin Vassell on Monday night during the Spurs’ impressive win over the Los Angeles Clippers.

Pizza Hut is the title sponsor of the Spurs Youth Basketball League (SYBL). With your support, Pizza Hut is thrilled to continue its commitment to the league and the youth of our community. When you order from a San Antonio-area Pizza Hut by January 9, a portion of the proceeds will go directly to benefit SYBL. It’s an easy way for the community to support the long-running, low-cost youth basketball league, which has helped over 400,000 kids since its inception in 1990. Find your local Pizza Hut .

In the past, other actors have been involved. In particular, Pop spoke for SYBL.

The youth league is an effort close to the heart of Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich, who founded the league in 1990 with chairman and Kids Sports Network founder Frank Martin. It was created not only to promote youth basketball in the San Antonio area, but also to provide a safe space for economically disadvantaged young people to spend their free time. SYBL is part of Spurs Give, the official non-profit organization of Spurs Sports & Entertainment (SS&E).

Participants play basketball and improve their athletic skills while learning teamwork, leadership, cooperation and discipline from SYBL coaches. Pizza Hut, which delivers more pizzas than any other pizza company in the world and has become the most recognized pizzeria in the world, has been involved with SYBL since its initial launch 31 years ago.

“This historic league represents our continued commitment to the children of our community and our goal to create leaders and legacies throughout San Antonio,” said Kara Allen, Chief Impact Officer for SS&E. “We are honored to bring this program to children in our community through partners like Pizza Hut. While they’re learning to play on the court, what we love most is coaching and developing these kids with life skills for their future.

Spurs Give is the official 501(c)(3) non-profit organization of Spurs Sports & Entertainment. Since 1988, they have invested $28 million in the community of San Antonio. Through our grant and impact programs (which I have personally benefited from with my students), lives are changed.
