The Baydogs Athlete Sponsorship Program (BASP) was set up in 2017 with the goal of providing financial support for up to 5 youth / junior development athletes or full time college/university students each year. Each individual award will be a maximum of $100 and can be used to purchase a Baydogs Full Membership (16+) or contribute money toward a specific race entry fee.
