We are now accepting financial aid applications for the 2019/20 season.

Financial Aid Program

FC Spokane provides interested and motivated youth the opportunity to play soccer at the level that fits their skills and abilities. FC Spokane strives to keep soccer affordable, so all youth may have an opportunity to participate. As such, the FC Spokane Financial Aid program is intended to provide opportunities for financially disadvantaged youth players to participate in the FC Spokane programs.

Privacy
All Financial Aid applications and financial documentation information provided will be kept confidential. For the privacy of our applicants, all documentation will be destroyed or returned (upon request at the time of submission) after the FC Spokane Financial Aid Committee approves or denies the request for financial aid.

Guidelines

  • Financial need must be demonstrated for consideration. Economic hardship will be the only factor in awarding Financial Aid. No one will be disqualified from consideration because of gender, race, color, creed, or religious beliefs.
  • While we try to address as much of the needs as possible, Financial Aid amounts will be based on the number of players demonstrating need, the extent of that need and budget available for Financial Aid that year.
  • Financial Aid awards will be reviewed on a yearly basis.
  • The maximum amount available for a single player is the equivalent of 50% of club dues.
  • No financial aid is available for uniform costs.
  • Financial aid is not available to U18/U19 Premier players.

Criteria and Eligibility

To be considered for Financial Aid you must live up to the following:

  1. Player must be registered in the FC Spokane electronic system, have paid the required 25% of total club dues, and have a credit card or other payment information on file.
  2. Complete and submit an application for Financial Aid
  3. Supply a copy of the first two pages of your filed Federal tax return for the previous year.
  4. Include any additional documentation demonstrating financial need.
  5. Applications received after June 1st (June 15th for North Idaho players) will not be considered.
  6. Applications which are not filled out properly and/or completely will not be considered.
  7. Applications must be filled out by the adult requesting Financial Aid. Applications for Financial Aid cannot be filled out by coaches, team managers, children or friends.
  8. Any requests for documents to be returned must be made at the time of application.
  9. No Financial Aid is awarded to players with outstanding balances from previous seasons.
  10. Financial Aid Recipients must complete required volunteer time. If the recipient does not fulfill this requirement, this may affect the outcome of future Financial Aid applications.

Once submitted, your request will be reviewed by the Financial Aid Committee in a timely manner. Financial Aid is applied to program fees only (it will not cover uniforms, tournaments, and other team specific costs to be paid by the household).

If Financial Aid is granted, payments after the required minimum of 50% of club dues (2nd installment) is paid will be canceled to match the amount awarded. Failure to pay the required amount in due time will result in financial bad standing and the player being excluded from participation.
