The November 30th Deadline is Fast Approaching, but It's Not too Late to Participate!
It's the final month of the Fall 2008 Responsible Sports Community Grants, the race for one of the twenty $2,500 grants ends November 30th. There's still time to get started if you haven't already.
For some teams the tournaments and practices of the season are coming to a close, while for others the 2009 season is right around the corner. Either way, you have the opportunity to earn a $2,500 Responsible Sports Community Grant
US Youth Soccer's very own Rio Rancho Soccer Club from Rio Rancho, New Mexico earned a grant earlier this year. "We will use the funds to invest in soccer equipment and infrastructure to improve the quality of the soccer and to have a positive, lasting impact on the kids for several years," said Rio Rancho administrator Matt Geisel. "We will look at things like goals, nets, training gear and perhaps a storage container."
