creating equal opportunity by breaking down financial barriers to sport
Blue Devils strongly believes in the importance of sport for each and every individual, as it helps young athletes develop important life skills such as discipline and work ethic, as well as improve physical and mental health through physical activity and supportive relationships.
Therefore we also believe that ALL athletes deserve equal right to participate in athletics, and so we offer scholarship opportunities to reduce the financial barriers to sport participation.
If you feel passionate about Track and Field, and would like to participate in our Youth or Development programs, we have Scholarship Opportunities available to mitigate the cost of our coaching, Athletics Ontario Memberships, meet entries, and equipment.
Our Scholarship program is decided based on financial need, utilizing common sport subsidiary practices. We use the Low income cut-off chart, specifically the far right column of Metropolitan Area, outlined by the Government of Canada. Families who fall below the cutoff for their family size are eligible to receive 100% coverage of the coaching costs associated with our club (which may include singlet and meet fees). Families who are above the cut-off for their family unit size, but below the next immediate (larger) family size cut-off qualify for a partial scholarship. The partial scholarship includes coverage of 75% of our coaching costs (which may include singlet & meet fees).
To apply for our scholarship opportunities, please fill out the application attached below, and submit any supporting documentation. If you have any issues with the completion of the Scholarship Application, reach out to us! Our overall goal is to break down the financial barriers to sport and get young athletes running.
