Responsible Sports Program Opens Fall 2011 Community Grants Program
Responsible Sports, a philanthropic program of insurance company Liberty Mutual, is accepting applications from youth sports organizations in the U.S. to participate in its Responsible Sports Community Grant program.
To be eligible for the program, league administrators must first register their youth sports organization at the Responsible Sports Web site. Then, coaches, parents, administrators, and youth sports supporters can participate in the Responsible Sports Parenting and/or Responsible Coaching coursework. Participants who then pass the ten-question Responsible Sport Parenting quiz or Responsible Coaching quiz can credit the successfully passed quiz to their favorite youth sports league.
Applicant organizations must be a registered nonprofit, traditional youth sport organization recognized by the governing bodies of their sport(s). Organizations must serve the community at large and must be open to the general public.
For the fall 2011 Responsible Sports Community Grants program, organizations will compete for grants in three categories. Large organizations of one hundred or more players will compete for one of seven grants of $2,500; small organizations of under one hundred players will compete for one of seven grants of $2,500; and school/educational organizations (school athletic programs) will compete for one of six grants of $5,000.
See the Responsible Sports Web site for complete program information, coursework and quiz, and application procedures.
