ABOUT SPORTS 4 LIFE
In 2014, Sports 4 Life created a national initiative to increase the participation and retention of African-American and Hispanic girls, ages 11-18, in developmental youth sports programs. Through education, public awareness and grants to organizations nationwide, Sports 4 Life seeks to effect sustainable improvement to the overall health and development of girls in these communities.
The program has evolved and WSF now has two levels of funding to support to girl serving organizations across the country.
With the generous support of espnW, we are giving grants to girls through the Sports 4 Life program.Learn More
We have awarded $272,500 to 52 organizations this year, which will serve more than 12,000 middle and high school students.Learn More
