Financial Help
and Grant Available.


We understand that financial adversity can be a reality in many families. We dream that a child never stays away from learning soccer for purely economic reasons. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee a spot for all those who go through difficult times. However, we reserve a few spots at the beginning of each season to register those who may be unable to pay the regular rates. Please, if this is your case, write to us and describe your situation. Your case will be treated with strict confidentiality.

Soccer for everyone.
