Grappling sports lay a foundation upon which future generations can build the confidence, discipline, and community needed to excel in today’s world. Architect Youth Grappling Foundation serves to promote youth participation in grappling sports by reducing the cost of training and competition.
HOW WE OPERATE
We pay 50-85% of an athlete’s training fees!
We provide training equipment such as wrestling shoes, gis, rash guards, and singlets!
We pay 85% of competition fees!
We pay for most expenses associated with training and competing in grappling sports. We provide funds directly to clubs, gyms, or teams that train youth in these sports. We prioritize youth in low-income households, but provide funds for all youth who desire to train.
CAMPS, CLINICS, & YOUTH OUTREACH
We tap into the vast amount of expertise we’re surrounded with, and host grappling camps and clinics for youth to help them improve their skills on the mat. All of our events are free for participants. We host personal development events, guest speakers, and other life-focused learning opportunities for young athletes. We think grappling teaches determination, work ethic, and discipline better than most things out there, but we are working to produce well-rounded adults with the skills and knowledge to succeed in life.
Pain is nothing compared to what it feels like to quit. Give everything you got today for tomorrow may never come.
