Frequently Asked Questions
Who qualifies for aid?
Any registered and actively participating WSC player is eligible for the season they are participating. While we have set income thresholds relative to family size, they are guidelines and extenuating circumstances may be taken into account when the application is reviewed.
Are awards seasonal (Fall/Spring) or annual?
Awards for Recreational players cover a single season of cost. Recreational players must apply for assistance before each season (Fall and/or Spring) even if you received an award in a previous season. Classic and Travel players commit to a team for an entire year (Fall, Winter and Spring), so these awards will cover the entire soccer year (July 1, 2017 - June 30, 2018). THE MAXIMUM AID AMOUNT CAN BE NO HIGHER THAN 35% OF THE PLAYER'S ANNUAL FEE.
What if I register after the deadline?
Applications will be accepted after the deadline; however there may not be funds available for late grants if all allotted funds have already been disbursed to on time qualified applications. Post-deadline applications will not be accepted if all budgeted funds are exhausted.
