Program Cost Explanation

An independent youth sports program has a number of costs that are shared among the participants. The Strong Center is pleased with the early sponsorship and donor response to assist with initial capital purchases in the program such that these costs are not passed onto to each family. However, the year to year operational costs were designed to balance with registration. A projected cost breakdown is presented in the graph below:

Similar to many independent sports programs, the ongoing efforts will require support from friends, families, business, and organizations. We encourage all participants in the program to help us fulfill the goals with donations.
