New process for application and awarding shoes from the Golden Shoe Fund.

To avoid the possibility of students losing eligibility or future scholarship opportunities the Traverse City Track Club has changed the procedure used to grant shoes to students through the Golden Shoe Fund.

As in the past a coach will fill out an application.

If and when the application is approved a voucher to be used at Running Fit will be sent to a representative (principal or athletic director) at the sponsoring school and a letter will be sent to inform the coach of the approval. The sponsoring schools’ representative will then use the voucher to purchase shoes to be used by the student athlete. The student athlete will be able to use the shoes for the current sport season and at the end of the season may purchase the shoes from the school at fair market value. Fair market value for a pair of shoes, after a season of use, has been set at $0.00 by representatives of the MHSAA.

The Traverse City Track Club looks forward to being able to help young people in our service area enjoy their running lifestyle.
