Grant funding available for Youth Sports Summit attendees

So, Congress pulled us back from the fiscal cliff, huh? Well, many of our youth sports budgets went over the fiscal cliff a long time ago. Scratch that. Some of our budgets have gone off the cliff, rolled down a hill and are in a ditch.

Your friends at the Sportsmanship Initiative aren’t magicians, but we can provide some relief. Your kids need uniforms, equipment, entry fees, etc. Heck, the team bus needs gas. We’re here to help.

What if we told you that your organization could earn as much as $1,000 just for attending the 2013 St. Louis Youth Sports Summit at Maryville University on January 12?

It’s not a joke. The process is easy. All you have to do is email and you’ll be sent an application – which is just to prove your group is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. Next, get 25-50 adults in your organization to register for and attend the Youth Sports Summit.

There are three ways to register. Click here and you’ll be sent directly to our registration page. You can send an email to the address provided above or you can call our office at 314.345.5130.

Of course, the 2013 St. Louis Youth Sports Summit isn’t about what you can get, but what you can give to your kids. We will have sessions on coaching leadership, sports parenting, concussion treatments and how to combat gambling in youth sports and much more.

Oh yeah, and our keynote speaker will be none other than arguably the greatest female soccer player in history – Mia Hamm. It’s true, Mia will talk about how her experiences on an elite level have shaped her as a coach and as a mom.

Let there be no excuses where our kids are concerned. Register yourself and encourage every parent and coach you know to register. Every sport regardless of gender and competitive level is welcome.

To recap – The 2013 St. Louis Youth Sports Summit is Saturday, January 12 from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. inside the Maryville University Auditorium. Admission is free. Parking is free. Breakfast is free. All you and your friends have to do is show up and show your kids the dedication you have to them.

Don’t be the one who missed Mia! Until next time…

Be a Good Sport!
