How We Crush Barriers
The Reality of Access Barriers
Access to high-level sports and performance training has not been equally accessible for everyone. Socioeconomic barriers often limit participation in programs which could have a dramatic lifelong impacts.
- Financial Barriers related to the full cost of training and participation.
- Geographic Barriers which limit access and transportation to training facilities and coaches.
- Social Barriers such as discrimination or bias based on gender, race, or socioeconomic status.
- Trust Barriers related to the effectiveness and safety of training or event the institutions behind them.
- Lack of Information can limit even awareness, let alone participation.
By crushing barriers and leveling the field, we create opportunities which can last a lifetime.
