Shelton Youth Soccer Organization

SYSO and Shelton FC Financial Aid

SYSO and Shelton FC, in an effort to promote the sport of soccer and to make it available to any Shelton child that has the desire to participate regardless of family financial situation, provides financial aid to those individual soccer players and families who demonstrate a financial need and complete the application process. Financial aid is provided subject to available funds as allocated by the Board of Directors and administered by the club Registrar.

Tuition Financial Aid is applied for and awarded one season at a time, and receiving an award for one season does not guarantee an award in any following season due to the fact that awards will be determined by the applicant's level of qualification, the number of qualified applications and the amount of funds available is variable.

Travel and Premier Uniform Financial Aid is also available and can be applied for and awarded one time per family. This aid is also based on need as specified below.

Limited economic Means: Family has limited income and player qualifies for assistance through a school lunch program, through Family Services, or another recognized aid organization. There is no limit to the number of times this reason may be used; however, we request specific information in order to qualify. Submissions after registration deadline do not qualify.

Temporary Financial Hardship: The family has experienced a recent and temporary financial hardship and is unable to pay the full registration fee. This reason may not be used more than twice in a two-year period. The family is asked to contribute a minimum of 50% of the registration fee per player if able to, and SYSO will fund the remainder if aid is awarded. Submissions after registration deadline do not qualify.

Confidentiality: All applications and information will be handled with strict confidentiality.
