2011-12 Sled Grant Program
USA Hockey and the USA Hockey Foundation is offering a new sled grant program to assist new start-up sled programs. The purpose of this grant is to help with the initial costs of getting a new sled program off the ground and to ease some of the initial financial burden by providing five (5) new sleds to a participating program.
It is quite easy to qualify for this program. Applicants must submit a Sled Grant Application Form, the new sled program must be in its first year of operation and a financial statement and/or budget must accompany the application.
