The Arena Foundation (formerly "We Got Next Foundation") is a local (home base is Sioux City, Iowa) non-profit organization (501 c3) whose mission is to serve youth in the Siouxland community through sports.


The Arena Foundation serves youth in a number of ways:

  • Providing FREE sports camps throughout the year
  • Providing nutrition supplementation to local youth in community (based on need)
  • Providing annual College Scholarships to local student athletes attending college
  • Providing sports specific training to youth in the community
  • Providing educational opportunities to youth by way of clinics and other sports related events

"At The Arena Foundation, we believe that keeping kids active and involved in sports accomplishes much more than just an opportunity to play a game, it teaches life intangibles that set kids up for future success. "
- Dustin Cooper & Jeff Carlson, Co-Founders

We believe that being involved in sports:

  • Promotes a healthy lifestyle
  • Teaches accountability and discipline
  • Teaches youth how to deal with adversity in a healthy way
  • Promotes accountability in the classroom and in the community
  • Teaches youth to be productive citizens in their community
  • Could potentially be a way to provide a college education

The Arena Foundation has been around since 2015 and has reached thousands of youth in the Siouxland community through free programming, educational opportunities, and nutritional supplementation.  Our mission is to have the greatest positive impact on the most youth in our community on an annual basis.
