We believe that our member clubs know how best to advance the game in their community. To aid local development of the game grant funds of up to $2,000 are available. Funding for the grants comes in part from corporate support from the WNY Flash, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and Admiral Sportswear along with funds earmarked by the NYSW Board of Directors for reinvestment in our membership. When you buy from our sponsors you help create opportunities for soccer.
