Athletes As Scholars
My cause is a program that consists of physical sports training 8 hours per week, statewide competition experience and educational components that will lead to a number of scholarships and higher education assistance for youth who would normally not be able to receive. Often times we focus on an athletes and the physical strengths an capalities but we forget that they are STUDENT Athletes. My program focuses on providing funding and training for individuals to participate in a sport that s normally out of reach do to the high cost of over $3500 per season per athlete. The opportunity to participate provides experience in national travel, competition and teamwork skill building. Our programs have weekly skills training as well as tutoring, test skills development, and scholarships for both athletic fees and high education. We look to grow this into a year round program with the ability to grow our facility to have space to help even more local youth.
