FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE FOR GIRLS RUGBY PROGRAMS

We want to make sure that every child that wants to participate in a Girls Rugby program has the opportunity to do so. We are trying to reduce as many challenges to participation as we can, including financial challenges. Girls Rugby has partnered with Every Kid Sports, a leading national non-profit organization that provides financial support to children of low-income families to pay youth sports registration fees. In an effort to remove the financial barriers that keep kids from playing, encourage the development of multi-sport participation and provide kids with the choice of sport they’d like to play, Girls Rugby will spread the word about the Every Kid Sports Pass in an effort to provide more children with the opportunity to play rugby.

The Pass removes financial barriers to youth sports participation by providing income-restricted families funding up to four times a year, per child, for participation in the sport of their child’s choice. Playing multiple sports exposes kids to greater physical literacy, better socialization, and greater enjoyment in being physically and emotionally active. It prepares them for a lifetime of activity, connection, and positive experiences. For more information or to learn more about Every Kid Sports please visit: www.everykidsports.org.

Every Kid Sports has implemented seasonal application windows where families can apply for the next season. The next application window will be for Fall 2024 seasons and it will open sometime in June 2024.

Applying for funding through Every Kid Sports is super easy and you can get all of the information you need from their website.

  3. Apply directly with Every Kid Sports for funding support with the correct documentation.
  4. Wait for your application to be approved (approx. 5-7 days). Receive your funding through a digital Chek Card.

The Tommy Hoffman Scholarship Fund of Colorado

Coach Tommy Hoffman was a pillar in the Girls Rugby Colorado community since the very first season in fall of 2018. Tommy and his family joined Girls Rugby that first season and returned every season after, completing eleven seasons in total. Tommy joined the coaching ranks in 2021 and continued coaching through 2023, making a positive impact on every player who had the pleasure of meeting him. While we lost Tommy in 2023, his spirit and heart live on in our Girls Rugby community.

To honor Coach Tommy and all that he did to support our mission, Girls Rugby has created the Tommy Hoffman Scholarship Fund, which will support any player in Colorado needing financial assistance. Colorado players interested in applying can do so through the regular season registration process. 

To donate to the Tommy Hoffman Scholarship fund, visit www.girlsrugbyinc.com/donate and select “Scholarship Fund” for your area of giving.
