Individual Athlete Application

Qualifying athletes receive aid on a first-come, first-served basis as funds are available. Your child wants to play, and we want to help make sure they can by covering registration, equipment, uniform, and other associated fees. It is important for our assistance process to hear why this request is helpful to the individual player, team, school, or organization and how it will benefit his/her athletic development and overall sense of well-being. Players must be 18 or under to be eligible for athletic assistance.
