Sports Hero Day is an event that happens twice a year. During our event, we invite 1,000 6th grade students to come and find their heroes through our BYU Student Athletes. While the 6th graders are here on campus, they have the opportunity to meet the student athletes, hear their stories, and practice their sports. We hope to motivate these kids to help them find values and set goals for their future through the example they learn from the BYU athletes. We invite you to come and help inspire these 6th grade students this January. Please come for whatever time you have available between 9:00am and Noon at Lavell Edwards Stadium. Thank you for your interest in our program!
