Our Story


The concept for Mpact Sports was formed by the life experiences of Co-Founder Rusty Bettis and his daughter, Meghan. Meghan was an avid volleyball player, who dreamed of participating at the collegiate level. That dream took a hit in 2008, however, when both Rusty and Meghan’s mother lost significant long-term jobs due to the global credit crisis. 

Though Meghan had played Club Volleyball for several years, her parents’ continued unemployment meant she had to come up with financial solutions to continue the pursuit of her dream. She worked odd jobs during the week and hustled weekends at Club-related events. For years, Rusty watched Meghan work tirelessly to earn money to continue her dream of college competition. 

Rusty’s experience, watching his daughter, made him realize how exclusive Club Volleyball and Select Sports can be and how difficult it is for most kids to participate. Young athletes who want to compete at the high school and collegiate levels need the option to play Club Sports. The Mpact Sports team believes that no potential athlete should be denied the opportunity to play a sport based on his or her financial circumstances and has made a vow to Mpact the Austin community with the hope that all kids will be able to pursue their dreams.

Would you like to help sponsor local youth who need financial assistance to participate in sports or a team that needs a sponsor? 


Mpact Sports operates and relies on the generosity of the community, our sponsors, and our friends to fulfill our mission statement. We accept individual sponsorships as well as business and corporate sponsorships (an EIN can be provided upon request).  All Business and Corporate Sponsors are recognized with their own business ad in the ProvenTeams Business Directory! We accept monetary, equipment, and memorabilia donations.  Every little bit helps and allows us to generate more money for our cause. If you or your company are looking for an opportunity to help the kids in need please email Rusty@mpactsports.org and we will be glad to answer any questions you might have.

Mpact Sports goal is to match donated sports equipment with local youth who need equipment to participate in sports. In some instances Mpact Sports may sell the donated memorabilia or equipment to raise money which is used as grant funds. Due to the nature of matching young kids with equipment, we need the donated sports equipment to be in good condition.

(Mpact Sports is a 501c3 organization and donations are tax decuctible, per IRS guidelines.)

Thanks for visiting us at ProvenTeams and for helping us Mpact Austin!






(1) I am a social worker at Rodriguez Elementary in Dove Springs.  Our school of approximately 750 students is 97% Economically Disadvantaged and 59% are English Language Learners.  The neighborhood in which the school resides has few options for recreation and many of the youth are in need of a physical outlet (highest rate of childhood obesity in the city). We solicited Mpact Sports for donated sports equipment. Mpact Sports gave us a grant, enabling our staff to purchase new sports equipment for our students. Thank you, Mpact Sports, our students and my administration appreciate your partnership!

(2)   Because of Mpact Sports, I didn't have to take my child out of her gymnastics classes! As a single mom, I have pressing financial responsibilities that make it challenging to pay for extracurricular activities. My 7-year-old looks forward to gymnastics everyday; counting the days until her next class with so much excitement! It teaches her about her body, challenges her physically, and builds her confidence! With her starting competitions soon, I was so worried how I would be able to make it happen. Thank you, MS. What a blessing!

(3) Mpact Sports has graciously supported our baseball organization, allowing under-privileged boys to continue to play the game they love. With their support we are able to help keep these boys on the field and out of trouble! Thank you, Mpact Sports, for everything you do for our communities!

(4) Buzz Lightning Baseball Academy parents are so VERY grateful for your generosity!! The BLBA organization fundraises like no other baseball organization in the area to make sure families like mine can afford select baseball. Coaches work on a shoe string budget and and provide fundraising opportunities throughout the season for all our families. You couldn’t have picked a more deserving organization to help. As a single mom with two kiddos playing select baseball every single penny helps. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU!!!

These boys and parents work hard to pay for these end of season tournaments. You donation will definitely help us to achieve our financial goal this spring! Again thank you so much for all you and your organization have done!
