The EAF (Eternia Athletics Foundation) understands deeply the needs of the Young Athletes in our community. Expenses in all sports can grow rapidly. The gym fees, equipment and travels costs can add up rapidly, leaving little opportunity for youth in lower classes to continue to participate at a competitive level. EAF believes whole-heartedly in the positive benefits sports and fitness have the to change lives. The purpose of the Young Athlete Gym Scholarship Program is to gift young people with the ability to participate and inspire. We as a community are coming together to give back so that athletes can develop into strong, well-rounded individuals not only physically but also mentally.

It is the EAF’s mission to maximize the number of participants benefiting from all-star performance facility and provide an outlet through competitive programs. The Young Athlete Gym Scholarship Program provides a way for the EAF and our corporate sponsor to support the talents of our members and all young people who desire to participate. By doing so, the sponsored athlete receives a chance to continue to grow character, strength and their future in a sport that they may not otherwise be able to pursue, if not for the generosity of scholarship assistance.
