The 2013 LA Watts Summer Games (LAWSG) is an interscholastic athletic competition that promotes positive interaction, respect and achievement among high school youth. The Games take place on June 8-9 and 14-15 this year for healthy competition among more than 4,000 California high school athletes. The first LA Watts Summer Games were held at Locke High School and consisted of 150 student-athletes competing in three different sport competitions. Over the past 45 years, close to 300,000 student-athletes from diverse socio-economic backgrounds have participated in the LA Watts Summer Games, including 8 Olympians and 6 Hall of Fame recipients, and star athletes such as Florence Griffith Joyner, Lisa Leslie, John Elway, Michael Cooper and many more.
This year marks the first annual LA Watts Summer Games Leadership Summit on May 4, with the aim to provide education about the mission and history of the Games and to provide a platform for leadership skills development for coaches and team captains. The half-day conference is designed to bring together coaches within the Southern California area currently involved in youth sport programs and high school-aged student athletes serving in the role of team captains for their team.
