Bayside Athletics is a nonprofit 501 c 3. The main purpose of the organization is to be a financial support the ministry of Bayside Cheer LLC in 3 ways:
1. Offering a financial aid program to offset class fees or tuition for athletes of Bayside Cheer LLC who are activity participating in cheer teams or classes and/or tumbling classes to those in economic stress or low income families.
2. Purchase supplies for spiritual growth, including but limited to bibles an devotionals.
3. To raise funds for our special needs program equipment.
To this date Bayside Athletics/Bayside Cheer have not turned an athlete away because of financial situation. We believe sports, all sports, should be for everyone not just those who can afford them.
Over the past year we have served over 380 athletes from all over the county and have given over $18,000 in our sports scholarships. We predict in the next year (2016-2017) we’ll need to raise about $25,000 to cover the scholarships.
Scholarships (aka financial aid) go to local low income families, single income families, and or those who have recently lost a job or had a unexpected financial strain on their family.
