The grants fund the creation or renovation of spaces that empower students to excel not only athletically, but also socially, emotionally and academically
Coaching and Athletic Director Training & Development
Baltimore City Schools Athletic Directors and Coaches receive foundational character-based coaching support in-person and via online resources. In partnership with the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA), a national non-profit organization with the mission of creating a positive, character-building youth sports environment, over 500 City Schools coaches (every sport in every season) will be invited to coaches’ trainings and have PCA as resource for school visits and support during the 2019-20 school year.
New On-Field Performance Apparel
Every student athlete in Baltimore City wears the highest quality Under Armour uniform for every contest. In addition, every high school coach receives Under Armour performance apparel and each student athlete received a one of a kind Baltimore Student Athlete t-shirt. Providing this quality gear to students and coaches provides them with a sense of pride and serves as a way to unite athletes across the city.
Student Athlete Coalition
In partnership with Baltimore City Public Schools, the Baltimore Ravens, and the Fund for Educational Excellence, the Baltimore Student Athlete Coalition looks to improve the experience of student athletes and promote equitable access to physical activities.
