Athletic Equipment Initiative

We are committed to providing our community the opportunity to participate in youth athletics regardless of financial status. In addition to registration fees, other financial obligations are required to participate in youth athletics such as equipment expenses. Through the DICK’s Sporting Goods Sports Matter Grant, Sylvania Recreation has secured funding to reimburse qualifying families for (some or all) equipment costs to participate in youth athletics. It is our goal to help inspire and enable participation in sports. Why? Because participation in sports makes people better.
