The Details...

On average, in the US, parents spend $671 per year on youth sports and at least 1 in 5 spends over $1,000 per child annually. This is not including kids whom play for competitive organized teams, soccer club teams, etc. who can spend over $2,000 in just 2 ½ - 3 short months excluding equipment!

These high costs appear to be having a detrimental effect on the number of children participating in sports. In a study conducted by the Sports & Fitness Industry Association (SFIA), 44.7% of youth ages 13-17, and 34.7% of children 6-12, were active three times a week in sports in 2007. By 2014, those numbers dropped to 39.8% and 26.9%, respectively.

Awarding Scholars Scholarship

Primary Goal:
Coach Taylor's 'Awarding Scholars' scholarship program is designed to encourage and support outstanding student-athletes who excel academically and athletically. Our scholarships provide financial assistance to middle school and high school students whom would like to attend a college skill camp. Passion 4 Youth would like to give between 25-50 scholarships annually.

The one-time non-renewable scholarships will be awarded 3 times a year corresponding to each sport season (fall, spring & summer).
