  • Pali Blues Soccer Club
    Though the Los Angeles Blues are firmly attached to California, they celebrated their inaugural season like any newlyweds would: they headed to the Caribbean. In the team's first official weekend of play, it earned back-to-back wins over Sevilla Puerto Rico and Antigua Barracuda on their home turfs. Winning became a theme for the Blues that season, as they surged to the playoffs in the nascent USL Pro League. Since those early triumphs, the Blues have expanded beyond play in the USL Pro, taking on teams from other leagues during the annual U.S. Open Cup, participating in international exhibitions, and constantly fending off squirrels trying to steal the game balls for their acorn hoards.

  • GO Surf LA
    Peter Paris has passed his knowledge of surf onto more than 1,500 people, including the hosts for TBS's Weekend Extra and TVNZ's Good Morning New Zealand. His expertise is a product of years travelling California and South America, cutting through thin veils of salty spray on some of the finest waves in the world. Now, as the owner of GO Surf LA, Peter and his team of CPR- and first-aid-certified instructors pass their knowledge onto students of all levels as they teach private surf and standup-paddleboard lessons. All sessions, which incorporate exercises on dry land and stints in the water, can take place at beaches around LA including shorelines in Malibu and Venice. Most beginner sessions stick to Santa Monica beach, though, because of the consistent waves and cotton-candy flavored sand. Peter has also worked to help at-risk youths learn to love surfing at the non-profit Stoked, which named him Volunteer of the Year in 2008.

  • Sports Champs
    No matter their athletic ability, kids aged 4–12 can get something out of Sports Champs' multiplatform day camps. That's because in addition to helping kids hone speed and strength in a number of sports––including basketball, field hockey, track, and volleyball––the CPR- and first-aid-certified counselors also encourage them to start thinking about sports-focused careers. Weekly guest speakers give fun and interactive lessons on broadcasting, management, nutrition, and physical therapy, to name a few.
