Promoting Youth Sports in the Greater Stanislaus Area

Who we are Annual Events

About Us

To make our community a better place by supporting youth athletics and promoting the principles of good sportsmanship, health, encouraging teamwork and instilling self-confidence in order for them to become successful adults.

This Year

This year marks the 53rd Anniversary of the founding of the Arrowhead Club. Originally founded as the Stanislaus Warriors Booster Club, the Arrowhead Club was originally chartered to provide moral and financial support to the Stanislaus State University fledgling athletic program. In 1997 the Arrowhead Club withdrew from university athletics and expanded its scope to college, high school and youth group sports in the Greater Stanislaus Area. Since December of 1997, the Club has distributed over $809,531 to youth athletics in the greater Stanislaus area for a Grand Total since inception of over $1,229,177! 

The Arrowhead Club is governed by a Board of Directors, who organize fund drives, determine recipients, decide on levels of financial support, and maintain reserves in the form of investments and savings. Along with economic need, funding for sports programs is based on benefit to the largest number of individuals. Applications and funding to schools and youth organizations are granted three times a year. 

The next application period for funding is September 15, 2020 for the school year 2020-21. A meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 15th at Toscana's Restaurant, 1801 Colorado Ave, Turlock, CA. This is a mandatory meeting that you must attend in order to apply for funding during the 2020-21 school year. You must attend or send a representative in your place, there are no exceptions. If you do not sign in at the meeting you will not be allowed to apply for funding during the 2020-21 school year.

Annual Events

To raise funds for youth sports, we have multiple events throughout the year.

Arrowhead Black Oak Casino Bus Trip- Postponed

Saturday, August 22, 2020
This event has been postponed due to the fact that Black Oak Casino is closed in compliance with the State of California COVID 19 rules and guidance.
This event will be scheduled for a later date in the summer.

Funding

Every year in September, the Arrowhead Club holds an annual information meeting and requires all groups to attend if they wish to apply for funding during the current school year. Three times a year, funds providing, the Arrowhead Club distributes a minimum of $10,000 per funding period, to support youth athletics in the "Greater Stanislaus Area".

In order to apply for funds, you or a representative of your group must attend this annual meeting held in September. Applications for funding are available at that time. How to apply for funds and what the Club will fund is also discussed at that meeting. When applying for funds, you are asked to submit documentation from any alternate funding sources in the form of a financial record, i.e., from a booster club, a statement from an A. D., as to the funding for that sport and provide a supplemental sports budget. The statement should show funding for the year.

We also discuss the expectations for those that receive funding. There is a sign-in sheet at the meeting, if you intend to apply for funding, your name must be on that sheet. A representative for each sport must attend the meeting, not one representative per school. For example, if you are applying for Basketball, Baseball and Track monies, you must have a representative from each sport attending (3 coaches). Only those that attend and sign in at this meeting will be allowed to apply for funds during the current school year.

Applications must be for programs supported through schools, a local City Agency or Youth Athletics supported by the Community in the Greater Stanislaus Area (photocopies acceptable). First preferences will go to capital projects. Funding should be for a one-time need, not a project that needs continual financial support by an outside agency. Example: Uniforms for a new athletic team would have priority over a team that is already active. Also important is the scope of the request as far as how many people will benefit by the project funding. An advisory committee will review your application and notification of acceptance or denial will follow by mail after the Arrowhead Board has finalized their decisions.  

The next application period for funding will be September 15, 2020 for the school year 2020-21.  A meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 15th at Toscana’s Restaurant, 1801 Colorado Ave, Turlock, CA.  This is a mandatory meeting that you must attend in order to apply for funding during the 2020-21 school year.  You must attend or send a representative in your place, there are no exceptions. If you do not sign in at the meeting you will not be allowed to apply for funding during the 2020-21 school year.
