The Northfield News had an excellent story on the Northfield Youth Sports Collaborative in Saturday’s edition.

Run by volunteers, the Youth Sports Collaborative helps to assure that all Northfield youth — regardless of their family’s socioeconomic status — can take part in local youth sports associations. 

One of the collaborative’s key efforts has been the establishment of a shared scholarship pool for the local associations to use when their internal scholarship pools have been exhausted.  The Community Action Center of Northfield serves as the fiscal agent for the collaborative and assists with screening scholarship applicants to assure their financial eligibility

Since 2004, the Northfield Youth Sports Collaborative has awarded over 900 scholarships for low-income youth to take part in local sports associations.
