Help the El Paso Wings Track Club Earn $2500
El Paso, Texas, March 26, 2013 - The El Paso Wings Track Club is asking for your help to earn one of 15 $2,500 Grants from Liberty Mutual Insurance Responsible Sports program.  Community Grant is part of the Liberty Mutual Insurance Responsible Sports program which is an ongoing effort championing and celebrating responsibility in youth sports.  This community-based program offers meaningful, easy-to-us educational resources for youth sports parents and coaches. "The Liberty Mutual Insurance Responsible Sports program targets many of the issues we see happening at youth sporting events by shining a positive light on what it means to be a responsible coach and a responsible sport parent.  Beyond that, Liberty Mutual is supporting local organizations like the El Paso Wings Track Club to offset the costs of providing a valuable youth sports experience," said Julie Brassard, Marketing Manager at Liberty Mutual Insurance.

The Responsible Sports program, including the Community Grants, comes at a crucial time for communities like ours.  Like other communities across the U.S., our own youth sports programs are under pressure from increasing numbers of participants, limited volunteer activity and mounting program management and administration costs.  The Responsible Sports program provides access to valuable resources and assets that can ensure our organizations thrive even under challenging circumstances.

"I am excited to be a part of a grant program that rewards organizations for promoting the very values we have promoted all along.  Good and responsible sportsmanship among parents, coaches and athletes is paramount to every young athlete's success and development," said Deanne Rankins, President of the El Paso Wings Track Club.

The El Paso Wings Track Club is asking individual community members to read one of the online guides (Responsible Coaching and Responsible Sport Parenting) and take a quick 10-question quiz. Every completed quiz is worth one point.  The top five organizations that earn the most points by May 31st in each of the three divisions will earn one of the 15 grants. Complete details on the grants as well as the guides and quizzes are available through the official program website at www.ResponsibleSports.com/Grant.

The El Paso Wings Track Club has been participating in youth track & field in El Paso since 1987.  Our team is run entirely of volunteers who teach the fundamentals of track & field events while developing responsible sportsmanship and leadership values that carry over into each athlete's daily lives.  Over 100 athletes ages 5 to 18 participate in our program each year, and we have produced Regional and National champions along the way.  More information on the El Paso WIngs Track Club can be found at www.ElPasoWings.org.

El Paso Wings Recieves USATF Foundation Youth Grant
Youth Grant Provides for Much Needed Equipment
January 23, 2012
 
  
In October 2011, the El Paso Wings Track Club was awarded the USATF Foundation Youth Grant.  The grant, totalling $1500, provided for the purchase of 10 hurdles, 1 hurdle form-finder, and 1 800g javelin.   This much needed equipment will benefit our athletes greatly.   Our club has never owned its own equipment for hurdles, and has often relied upon borrowing items from schools for hurdle training.  That equipment is often not readily available when school is in session.  This equipment will allow our hurdles coaches to provide hurdle practice and training throughout the year.   Since the javelin throw is not a school event in Texas, clubs must provide their own javelins for training and competion.  With a small donation, we were also able to have "WINGS" printed on the hurdle boards.Thanks to this grant, our club can continue to provide the necessary equipment and keep the costs of participating in the sport of track and field as reasonable as possible for our young athletes.
