Monday, January 23, 2023 - DICKS Sporting Goods Foundation has partnered with "Every Kid Sports," a nonprofit organization, to assist families with scholarships for youth sports registration fees.
The organization believes that sports have the ability to influence the lives of youth, but the cost of registration fees leaves many without the opportunity to play.
To qualify for assistance, the child must be enrolled in Medicaid, SNAP, or WIC. The sport must be recreational (not an elite or travel team), and the child must be between the ages of 4 and 18.
Qualifying families can now apply for up to $150.00 per child for each fall, winter, and spring season to cover registration fees.
If your child meets the qualifications, you can apply for assistance at www.everykidsports.org.
Scholarships are available on a first-come, first-served basis until funds are depleted.
If your child plays for the Sallisaw Youth League, the following information will need to be included during the application process: Jared Johnson, 918-208-9812; firstname.lastname@example.org.
