The Red Deer Games Foundation is now accepting grants for individuals demonstrating a high level of ability and strong devotion to their sport.
Deadline for Red Deer and area athletes to submit applications is Dec. 2.
The grants may be used by elite athletes to help offset the costs of training and equipment as they continue to pursue their training and competition programs.
The athletes represent a variety of sports recognized by Provincial Sport Associations within the Province of Alberta. The grants are awarded to individuals living in Red Deer and area who have demonstrated a high level of ability and a strong commitment to their sport. These athletes have achieved competence at the international, national, provincial, or regional level.
Since the grant program began in 1975, over $195k has been contributed to deserving athletes.
