LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Unified School District has designated $9 million to be used for schools’ athletic uniforms over the next three years in an attempt to keep athletes from having to do fundraising or shell out money to take part in sports.

The Los Angeles Times (https://lat.ms/1SPxGs0 ) reports Monday that the fund will also pay for cheerleading uniforms.

District sports coordinator Trent Cornelius says the money is an attempt to eliminate “pay to play” situations and make sports teams free of charge after years when parents and coaches were sometimes paying for uniforms out of their pockets.
