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.
In 2018, we awarded $475,000 to 64 organizations, serving more than 14,000 middle & high school girls.Learn More
