Sports in Schools works directly with community partners, athletic directors, coaches and social services to remove financial barriers to ensure that all students have the opportunity to participate in school sports, including pay to play fees, equipment and transportation support.

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.

Recent Successes and Current Challenges

Michael is a young man who has spent much time in the juvenile justice system. At 16 years old he decided he wanted to play football for his high school team. The pride and self-confidence that came with being part of his school's team flowed over into many other aspects of his life. His school attendance and performance increased dramatically, and his overall happiness and well-being have drastically improved. A perfect example of school sports changing lives!
