An exciting update is in store for APS high school student athletes – new equipment.
The APS Athletics and Activities and Grants and Federal Programs departments teamed up to secure $3,500 in grants from USA Football for Aurora Central High School and Vista PEAK Preparatory. The funds will allow the two schools to purchase new football equipment and supplies.
Since Vista PEAK is newer to the state’s football ranks and has seen an increase in student participation, the grant will help them better meet equipment needs.
USA Football is a non-profit youth football development partner of the National Football League, its 32 teams and the NFL Players Association. Each year, the organization offers a variety of grant programs to youth football and high school football programs.
APS also looks forward to working with USA Football on their Heads Up Football safety protocol initiative.
