The “5-7 Mission” is not a new initiative of the All Sports Association, but rather a refocus of who we are as an organization. Oklahoma City All Sports was founded in 1957 and is one of the oldest sports commissions in the country, with more than 50-plus years of great service to the Oklahoma City community. The “5-7 Mission” is based on the Five Principles which encompass the Seven Attributes of our organization.
Our mission is to SECURE, PROMOTE, CREATE, EXECUTE, and HOST quality, family-oriented amateur sporting events in the state of Oklahoma.
