COLORADO SPRINGS, CO, October 22, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- USA Volleyball is joining forces with its newest partner to offer the 2012 Ludus Tours Sport Development Grants to volleyball clubs for the development or enhancement of programming for boys, ages 14 years or younger.
Any USAV-sanctioned volleyball club that is in good standing with their Region and USAV is eligible to apply for one of five $1,000 grants. Only one club per USAV region will be awarded a grant. Grant funds must be used to develop new programming or enhance existing programming for boys, ages 14 years or younger. It is strongly suggested that the funds be used to create or improve youth leagues that cater to boys.
"It is a distinct pleasure to add Ludus Tours to our family of corporate partners. We know that Ludus Tours will provide USA Volleyball's members and athletes' families with a memorable experience at the Summer Games," USA Volleyball Secretary General Kerry Klostermann said. "We appreciate Ludus' commitment to volleyball at the grassroots level in the form of its Ludus Sport Development Grant."
"As an organization, we went to the drawing board to figure out how we can help an organization like USA Volleyball," said Adam Dailey, Managing Director at Ludus Tours. "For Ludus, we wanted to look back after a few years and see progress from the elite to the grassroots levels and if we can contribute to that in even one small positive way, we're contributing in a way that we're very proud of."
Applications will be accepted immediately and will be reviewed upon receipt. Applicants will be notified when the application is received and when a decision has been made concerning the application. Applicants should expect a response within 45 days of submitting their application.
Grant funds must be tracked and a written account of their use must be provided to USAV by July 1, 2012.
