MOOSE JAW — Moose Jaw has a new way for businesses to aid student-athletes in the city. 

The Flex Athletics Sponsorship Tuition (FAST) Fund is a community sponsorship opportunity that allows businesses to help students achieve their goals through FLEX Athletics. The FAST Fund aims to break down the barriers to entry into the FLEX Athletics Program, which can impose significant costs on students—$420 per semester or $840 per year. The FAST Fund hopes to alleviate this financial burden by inviting businesses to sponsor students through various sponsorship levels.

These sponsorship levels are as follows:

  • Bronze for $250
  • Silver for $500
  • Gold for $750
  • Platinum for $1000+

Businesses that decide to sponsor will receive several perks, including in-gym recognition in the form of signage, a social media post sharing the business and the athlete they are sponsoring, and additional useful perks.

The folks at FLEX Athletics believe that the FAST Fund is only in its infant stage, and they hope to have many more businesses approach them to offer support.

FLEX Athletics is a joint partnership between GAP and the two school divisions, Prairie South and Holy Trinity. The goal of FLEX is to enable high school student-athletes to train for their respective sports during the school day. If a student is more inclined towards a specific sport rather than general physical education, they can join FLEX and train with sports-specific coaches throughout the school day while receiving credit for their class.

"We encourage any interested student to speak with their academic advisor in their school to ensure it fits into their schedule," stated Matt Hetherington, the President of the FLEX Program. "That way, we can coordinate with the school to ensure students are in the right spot, training for the right sports, and that it fits their schedule."
