THE RINKS Find Your Grind Hockey Scholarship program was created by a donation to the Ducks Foundation from Find Your Grind Foundation Founders, Nick & Natasha Gross. Nick and Natasha started the Find Your Grind Foundation in 2015 to empower youth to find passion and purpose. In creating experiential learning opportunities, the Find Your Grind experience pushes youth to learn about themselves and be as prepared as possible for their future.
Find Your Grind's mission is to expose, enlighten, and educate youth on the possibilities of tomorrow.
We kicked off the FYG, Anaheim Ducks and The Rinks partnership at THE RINKS - Anaheim ICE in September 2018. The first group of the FYG Scholarship program consists of 30 participants who were selected from each of the seven THE RINKS locations, from Orange County to San Diego, who are receiving one year of financial assistance for their hockey developmental programs through THE RINKS.
The scholarship program is for youth ages 4-14. We will be selecting our next group of participants in the upcoming months, who will be set to begin programming in September 2019. To be considered for the Find Your Grind Scholarship, please fill out the following form: Find Your Grind Participant Questionnaire.
