WHO DECIDES IF I RECEIVE FINANCIAL AID?
A financial aid committee comprised of directors and club owners will award financial aid.
HOW MUCH FINANCIAL AID WILL I RECEIVE?
Financial aid awards are intended to fill the gap between what a family can afford to pay and Registration, Team Fees, and Uniform costs. It is expected that ALL players will contribute something toward these financial requirements.
WHAT CRITERIA ARE FINANCIAL AID AWARDS BASED ON?
The goal of the financial aid program is to assist low-income families with extraordinary temporary circumstances. Awards will be based on:
- Household income
- Extenuating medical or family hardships
AM I REQUIRED TO DO ANYTHING ELSE ONCE I RECEIVE FINANCIAL AID?
We ask applicants to pay their portion on time. We may request a thank-you letter to donors but we will make sure all letters remain anonymous. Upon receiving financial aid, you will be asked to volunteer at certain events.
CAN MULTIPLE PLAYERS IN ONE FAMILY RECEIVE FINANCIAL AID?
CAN PLAYERS RECEIVE FINANCIAL AID IN CONSECUTIVE YEARS?
Yes, as long as the financial need is demonstrated.
DO I NEED TO APPLY FOR FINANCIAL AID EVERY YEAR?
Yes, you must reapply each year.
