DIG Group Now Accepting Scholarship Applications for Fall 2021-2022 Season!
The DIG Group provides financial, mental health and wellness, and academic support for Black and Latinx Junior volleyball players in the New England Region. DIG’s overarching goal is to be a pathway to college for our student athletes.
Our Goal For The 2021-2022 Season
Our ask today is that you share this opportunity with your volleyball network as well as to the players who are on your rosters so that all players have equal knowledge of this amazing opportunity.
After you, your players and their parents review our scholarship program, we invite any Black or Latinx athletes to apply for a DIG Scholarship
Once reviewed, we will contact players directly to set up a zoom interview with both player and parent in attendance.
In addition to financial support, all DIG players will be provided access to these additional areas of support
Mental Health and Wellness
Through a partnership with the Sports Psychology Department at Springfield College, we have established a Mental Health support system for DIG players. The program provides access to a series of wellness seminars on topics like "Positive Self Talk" and "Developing a Growth Mindset" as well as one-on-one counseling for kids in need. There has never been a more important time for this support.
Academic and College Prep
DIG's overarching goal is to be a pathway to college for our student athletes. As part of that goal, we have partnered with COMORP. Their AC4SA (Academic Coaching 4 Student Athletes) helps review transcripts, track classes for eligibility and prepare students for academic success at the collegiate level.
