Playing in a school’s sports team may sound glamorous. But behind the cute uniforms and excitement of games, every team knows that there are tons of hidden challenges. One of the biggest challenges many teams face is a lack of funds. Funds availability, or lack thereof, could make the difference between a team struggling to hold it together to a championship-winning legend.

Playtex® Sport® wants to help your team play on!

Playtex® just announced their new Playtex® Play On Canada Grant Program. This program will provide grants to sport teams of secondary school girls.

Playtex® wants to help girls keep on participating in sports because they believe girls deserve just as much opportunities as boys. Often, girls are told that they can’t expect a real future in sports while boys are encouraged. By giving girls’ teams a chance, Playtex® is empowering girls to pursue their dreams.

What does your team need? New equipment or uniforms? A facilities upgrade? Extra coaching? Event entry fees? Travel fees?

Playtex® is offering up to $5,000 in grants for each team. A total of $50,000 is available for the Play On Canada Grant Program. In the application, tell Playtex® your team’s story and how your team would benefit from the grant.

Watch the video below to see the heartwarming reactions of a girls’ team when they received a surprise locker revamp from Playtex.

This could be your team! How far would an extra $5,000 take you?

The application deadline is October 31, 2016. To apply, you must be a Canadian resident and be 13 years or older. To learn more, visit:
