Funding Options and Grants

and Grants

While funding mechanisms differ between states and school districts, our programs qualify for several funding sources. Principals have funded Sports For Learning programs with general funds because our STEM and Soccer programs help meet identified goals and are supported by extensive data and research. As our reach expands into additional states, we remain dedicated to identifying additional funding mechanisms and to working with our clients in securing them.

“I never consider dropping Sports For Learning when reviewing budget spending.”

Title I

The Sports For Learning program is committed to bridging the learning gap between the playground and the classroom. Our Student Workbook takes the topics covered by our coaches on the playground and brings science alive when the students are back behind their desks. This focus on academic achievement, in addition to our adoption of a strong PBIS framework, allows for Title I funding to be used for our program. For more information on how Sports For Learning complies with the federal guidelines, please view this document.

Title III

Funding is made available to eligible districts to provide supplementary programs and services to English Learner (EL) students. Due to the use of our bi-lingual instructors, many schools will adopt the Sports For Learning program as a targeted intervention for their EL students. The SFL Student Workbook, available in English and Spanish, contains key vocabulary and concepts that are specific to curricular requirements for all students.

Title IV

Title IV, Part A of the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 is intended to improve students’ academic achievement by increasing the capacity of school districts to provide all students with access to a well-rounded education, improve school conditions for student learning. The Sports For Learning program is the perfect fit for this funding source. Our focus on STEM, social & emotional learning, and physical activity aligns seamlessly with districts’ goals to improve school culture, increase attendances, and provide an education for the whole child.

General Funds – Linked to the LCAP

Many schools will use their general funds to adopt the Sports For Learning program. When writing this in to your school plan, we advise that you link the program to one of these three state priorities:

Priority #4: Student Achievement
The Sports For Learning curriculum is designed to introduce
students to STEM learning using a blended learning approach.

Priority #5: Student Engagement
Sports For Learning has a proven track record of decreasing
suspension rates and increasing attendance rates at schools.

Priority #6: School Climate
The addition of our program to your school day provides a fresh
and innovative way to engage students in school.

As part of a well-rounded education, the Sports For Learning program is the perfect addition to support students in school and to encourage them to learn.


There are frequent grant opportunities in which Sports For Learning can partner with a school or district. If you come across a grant in the areas of physical education, STEM, PBIS, or others, please inform us. We have grant writers that will be more than willing to work with you in order to bring our program to your students.
