Sports in Schools Programs
Grow and Maintain EXISTING INFRASTRUCTURE – no need to reinvent the wheel
Our community is full of quality after school programs but many of these programs are located off school campuses and require expensive and redundant infrastructure such as transportation, staff and most expensive of all buildings. This infrastructure already exists in our local schools – it just needs our support!
We focus our funding on activities, but when needed we purchase equipment.
Our funds go to support any of the 14 WIAA sanctioned sports.3) We focus on providing opportunities not typically funded by school budgets. Activities such as: sending teams to summer camps, paying entry fees into summer leagues and holiday tournaments, special events, and All Star Games.
