Summer Sports Winding Down, Fall Sports Starting
With Surfing, Stand Up Paddle, Golf and Aquatics coming to a close, we’re looking ahead to Flag Football.

How to Donate Directly to Duval
Our program is made possible through the generosity of individuals, civic clubs, businesses and corporations both local and across the nation. Our athletes participate in our program at no cost; therefore, without volunteers and donations, the program would not exist.
We accept donations in the form of checks and money orders; or items such as water, food, transportation, office supplies, and shoes for our athletes.
If you would like to make a donation, please either contact us at (904)307-4221 or mail it to:
