Who does the scholarship help?

Recent scholars include three boys who received scholarships to play travel ball based on their economic need. They shared essays describing why they wanted to play and the benefits of being on the team.

Four young amputees were chosen to attend a summer softball camp with the USA Patriots softball team. The members of the team are veterans with disabilities. They are great role models and while having fun they share life lessons by coaching and mentoring.

There have been many more awarded in the past and many more to come.

This young athlete (featured in the photo) received a scholarship to play with the Tampa Saints Basketball traveling team. Mr. Hagan met all the criteria and is well deserving of this scholarship. Go Saints!

Would you like to help a kid like young Mr. Hagan? Do you know a young student between the ages of 11 and 18 years of age needing financial assistance attending a sports camp, league, or travel team?

Top 4 Reasons Youth Need Sports

  1. Improved Physical Health- build a foundation of good exercise habits for the future.
  2. Athletes Accelerate in Academics- being involved in sports can not only help cognitive performance but also lead to improved academic functioning.
  3. Mental Health Benefits- adolescents in sports, tend to understand themselves better and are best able to set limits and boundaries, when considering children’s overall social and emotional experience.
  4. Nothing worthwhile in life comes easily- Learning to work hard in sports and tolerate the natural ups and downs of athletics, can support the development grit.
