The Playhard Project caters to young athletes participation in mainstream and school sports. In 2009 an estimated $2 billion was cut during the 2009-2010 school year from districts nationwide. Another $1.5 billion was cut in the 2010-2011 school year. Currently 40% of school districts nationwide are charging fees for athletes to participate in "pay to play" activities.
Our program is designed to alleviate the financial burden families experience when participating in these programs. Leagues are often required to charge athletes tuition for participation as well as a charge for uniforms, practice facilities, game facilities and more. Fees add up quickly creating a monetary struggle within families.
Many families are faced with similar problems on a day to day basis and many families are forced to choose between desires and daily necessities. We understand and empathize with these decisions as many families are trying to provide their children with the best opportunities they can.
If you find yourself in this situation please, contact or enroll with The Playhard Project today.
What We Do:
Playhard seeks corporate, government and private funding, along with fundraising to provide struggling families and young athletes with the means necessary to participate in sports.
Sports such as football, soccer, baseball and softball require substantial funds for participation. Our organization is designed to provide equal opportunity for young athletes participating in these activities.
