Got Her Back is focused on keeping HER in the game. Often the support is targeted at keeping girls 17 and under in sports. Through this grant program, the WNFC and Got Her Back focus on support for adult women playing tackle football in the U.S.
Today, there are thousands of adult women playing organized tackle football in the US alone. While the sport is progressing towards paying players, it is widely recognized as a working woman's game, meaning most players have full-time jobs and pay to play.
We are proud to announce the "Keep Her In The Game Hardship Fund". The Fund will supply helmets, cleats, and other critical equipment required for safe gameplay to women's tackle football players who are experiencing a major financial hardship. U.S. residents only. The first application period will close December 1, 2020.
Special THANK YOU to Mr. Steve Smith Sr., The Steve Smith Family Foundation, and our friends at Riddell Sports for providing the initial funding for this grant program.
