The Santa Clara Youth Soccer League provides a need based financial aid program to help cover registration fees and partial coaching fees (for SCYSL and Santa Clara Lions FC competitive soccer teams). The program does not cover uniforms, tournaments, travel, lodging, apparel or miscellaneous expenses. Each year our league budgets a set amount to support the financial aid program, but this does not guarantee that all applicants will receive support.
Download this form and follow instructions to submit the form with back-up information to the SCYSL Financial Aid Committee to make all financial aid decisions. In order to qualify, a family must complete an application per player and provide proof of eligibility. Families will be notified by mail within 1-3 weeks of program application acceptance or denial. If accepted, the amount of award based on season and player age group will also be provided.
The financial aid program is a need based program that is awarded to families based upon their income. A family's income level is qualified using the stated Santa Clara County Income limits. The player applicant must be a full-time student with a GPA of 2.0 or above. Financial aid recipients are required to perform the league mandated 10 hours of volunteer service and cannot choose to pay the buy-out fee.
Due to recent mandates by US Soccer, all soccer clubs in the US are switching to birth year to determine what age group a player plays in. For instance a player born in the year 2003 will play in the U15 age group for the 2017-18 season.
