Need-Based Assistance Awards
Glenwood Springers Track Club is committed to providing a high-quality, affordable youth track & field program. While we try to keep club fees low, we realize that paying the full amount can be a hardship for some families. Glenwood Springers Track Club Financial Assistance Program exists to help ensure that no one is prevented from joining the Springers’ Track Club for financial reasons. Our goal is to offer some assistance to every family that demonstrates need. Budget constraints may not allow us to give everyone the level of aid they believe adequate.

Families who have a financial need may request a scholarship. Financial assistance award levels vary according to need. Based on factors such as family income and family size, awards may be granted to cover from 25% to 100% of Club Fees. Families must complete the Glenwood Springers Track Club application to be eligible.

Glenwood Springers Track Club is using the 2017 Garfield County Area Median Income Limits to determine financial assistance.


·    Families in Category 2 may request a 25% discount
·    Families in Category 1 may request a 50% discount
·    Any child in foster care may request a 100% discount.

Families may be asked to provide proof of income.

A financial assistance award will be used to pay a percentage of the club fees only.  Travel or meet fees (except those covered by the club for all participants) are the family’s responsibility.

Special Circumstance Assistance Awards
Any family that feels it needs financial assistance for their child to participate in Springers should submit an application. Special circumstances—such as large medical expenses not covered by insurance—will be considered. Please include an explanation of such circumstances in the financial assistance application.
