REGISTRATION OPENS APRIL 1st - DEADLINE: APRIL 20th for returning players, JUNE 15th for new players.
United Futbol Academy (UFA) is pleased to offer a Financial Aid Program for soccer athletes who are in need of financial assistance in order to play soccer. The program is available for all youths and an on-line financial aid application must be initiated by the parents or guardians of the player. The amount of assistance is limited each year, and based on a first-come, first-served basis. Financial aid is based on financial need only, and is not based on playing ability. Financial aid will cover only volunteer, field usage and registration fees. Financial aid DOES NOT COVER uniforms, tournament fees, coaching fees, travel expenses, 3rd training fees, camps, clinics, any extra training etc.
Any player requesting financial aid MUST complete the application, submit a copy of your current tax return and other supporting documentation (i.e. job loss, medical bills, etc) and pay the application fee before being considered for a scholarship. Please note that if you have an outstanding balance from the previous soccer season, your application will not be considered until the balance has been satisfied.
All financial aid requests are strictly confidential. Information is for the sole purpose of helping UFA determine financial aid eligibility, and will not be shared with anyone except the UFA Financial Aid Committee and the Club Registrar.
FINANCIAL AID FOR RECREATIONAL PLAYERS
FINANCIAL AID FOR ACADEMY/SELECT PLAYERS
In return for financial aid, we expect you to help us by volunteering your time. UFA serves over 6,000 players per season. In order to keep our costs reasonable and make scholarships available, we are dependent upon volunteers. Our organization also believes in our motto: Skills for Soccer. Skills for Life. We want everyone to have an opportunity to develop more than just soccer skills. In that vein, we are continuing to develop a strong volunteer base that supports the club through helping out in everything from field prep to tournament support. As a recipient of scholarship funding, we ask you to give back to the organization by volunteering throughout the season and during our tournaments. We cannot guarantee that you won't miss a game every once in a while, but we know your child will appreciate being able to play soccer this season.
Volunteer hours should be rendered in favor of the club and not solely for your child's team.
* Recreational – Aid requires me to volunteer for 5 hours per season.
* Academy/Select – Aid requires me to volunteer for 25-40 hours depending on the amount of aid received.
Volunteer hours will be tracked and approval of future scholarships will be contingent upon compliance with the volunteer requirement.
