Youth in Crisis

Texas Rangers Summer Academy

Presented by Garth Brooks and Troy Aikman's Teammates for Kids Foundation

Sixteen years ago, the Foundation began the Texas Rangers Summer Academy for children from the Len Pope Home. The purpose of the program is designed to not only give campers the opportunity to collect new experiences, but also help reduce the educational loss many kids face in the summer months.

In 2017, more than 100 summer campers participated in featured activities including a visit to the Dallas World Aquarium, Robot Park, iFly, Leonard Links and Globe Life Park in Arlington. The experience they'll likely never forget was thanks to FOX Sports Southwest. Participants in the Summer Academy starred in, produced and edited - with the help of FOX Sports Southwest staff - special 30-second commercials supporting FOX Sports Southwest's Rangers programming.
