Powerade State Games Featured Athletes

One of the most unique things about the Powerade State Games of North Carolina is that the Games feature athletes of all ages and skill levels. With a multitude of sports offered, we are looking to highlight some youth, high school & adult participants as we gear up for the 34th Edition of the Games in May & June 2020!

Play a niche sport more people should know about? Maybe your athletic talents have earned you a college scholarship which you’d never thought possible. Perhaps friendships which you have made through travel sports have shaped you in ways you never could have imagined. Is your team actively involved in community service and team building off the playing surface? Have your sport experiences taken you to unique places on the globe? Did you or your team earn a medal in the Powerade State Games and then compete in the State Games of America?

There are many more reasons than those listed which make for good stories. We want to share your story and feature you on our social media channels! Use the buttons below to tell us about how sports has impacted your life.
