Financial Assistance Program 2017-2018

Purpose
Auburn Youth Soccer Association (AYSA) is a non-profit organization committed to developing and maintaining a healthy environment for both recreational and competitive youth soccer programs. We believe that all levels of soccer should be available to any player with the attitude, desire and ability to compete regardless of financial status. It is our hope that no players opt out of soccer for financial reasons. 

Availability
AYSA shall provide financial assistance, to the extent possible as dictated by the AYSA budget, to those individuals who can demonstrate need.  Financial assistance in the form of a partial* reduction of a player’s registration fee will be available to members in need, in accordance with the guidelines listed below and subject to the AYSA Financial Assistance budget.  *(A very limited number of full player fee funding is approved, thereby allowing AYSA to assist as many families in need as possible.)  AYSA will be limited in its ability to provide financial aid based on member participation in submitting annual player fees and success in fundraising efforts. In the event of unforeseen financial hardship or unanticipated expense, AYSA reserves the right to postpone, rescind or terminate the Financial Assistance Program for the greater good of the association and its members.
