Our Grassroots Youth Grant was created to support girls ages 5-18 who have demonstrated a commitment to athletic development and expressed a financial need. This grant was designed to help provide access to track and field at the local level through run and track clubs. This grant can be applied to track club membership fees, uniform costs, and any related travel costs incurred while participating in the approved sports team for that approved season. The grant funds will be paid directly to the grant recipient’s club team to be applied towards the recipient’s club fees, uniform/running shoes, and any related travel costs.
This grant also covers training equipment to support girls training at home due to COVID-19. TrackGirlz teamed up with SKLZ to provide equipment grants to ensure girls have access to the tools needed to excel in sport. A coach can also apply for this grant, representing a track/run club financial need for girls in their program(s).
