FINANCIAL AID REQUESTS
Park Valley United F.C. is committed to providing a high quality, affordable youth soccer program. The financial aid program exists to help ensure players with a financial need have the opportunity to participate in the Park Valley United FC soccer organization. PVUFC is proud to be able to offer financial aid to individuals who can demonstrate a need for financial assistance. However, the funds are limited and are awarded on a first come first served basis.
The financial aid amount received will only be credited toward the registration fee of the player. Any additional expenses such as uniform, tournaments and indoor training fees are the responsibility of the player or the player’s family. PVUFC does encourage coaches, team managers and families to work together to assist those players who cannot cover all or part of their team expenses.
The amount of financial assistance awarded will vary based on the amount requested and the individual‘s/family’s need. The scholarship amount will be deducted from the registration fee. Among the criteria taken into consideration are family income, family size, player age and the player/family history with Park Valley United FC.
When PVUFC does award scholarship monies the player/player’s family will be required to provide an additional 5 hours of volunteer time to PVUFC.
Proof of Need
All applicants are required to fill out the scholarship form and must be accompanied by a proof of need. A proof of need is most easily established through submission of the applicant’s family’s first and last page of their most recent federal income tax return or most recent pay stubs for the player’s parents/guardians.
Park Valley United F.C. will attempt to maintain all financial aid requests in the strictest of confidence. The identity of financial aid applicants and recipients will be shared only with board members and club officials on a need to know basis (e.g. The club manager, registrar and scholarship committee). Documents submitted during the application process will be destroyed upon final determination of the award application.
Please go to each season's "tab" under Registration to access the Financial Aid document for that specific season. (One needed for each soccer season.)
