Winning the Keep Her in the Game Grant gives me renewed confidence going into this tackle season! Knowing I have my own properly fitted helmet will help me have more confidence on the field and keep me playing at my best! - Tallulah, Middle School Football
"I want to say thank you for blessing me with the Keep Her in the Game Grant award. The helmet will help me not only continue to play the game that I love professionally but also keep me safe while doing so. Now I can come into the next season with one less worry and focus on the most important thing, inspiring the next generation of women professional football players." - Mallory, WNFC
“With the help of the Keep Her in the Game Grant, I am now able to afford safe access to tackle football, reducing a key barrier to entry by providing safe and up to date equipment. Keep Her in the Game has done exactly that, it has allowed me to continue playing the sport I love.” - Emily, Edinburgh Wolves
