What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We are well aware of the fees involved in endurance sports. Team fees, equipment, uniforms, travel expenses, and other related costs all add up. Some families can afford it; others can not. However, access to endurance sports should not be limited to those who have the financial resources to compete. Income affects sports participation. Children who play more, come from families that can afford more. Only 34% of kids ages 6 to 12 from homes with incomes of $25,000 or less played team sports compared to 69% of kids from home with incomes of $100,000 or more. Endurance sports should not price out kids who can benefit from the camaraderie, competition, challenges, personal growth, and accomplishments that sports offer
