DC Stoddert Soccer believes that all children who are selected to participate in the Travel Program should be able to play, regardless of family income. As such, the club has a Financial Assistance Committee where the applications of families requesting financial assistance are reviewed and fee waivers granted, dependent on need.
- All players must register with DC Stoddert through a secure, online registration system which will were initiated after results from the 2016-17 travel team tryouts were released. Parents should indicate “applying for a fee waiver” when completing online registration for the team that they were invited to join for the school year. A deposit of $150 is required when submitting the application. Directions can be found on the Financial Aid Request Form that must be completed in full when applying for assistance.
- This application must be accompanied by the necessary documentation (one of the two options listed below):
- U.S. Federal Tax Return (Form 1040) First Page Only
- Proof of eligibility for TANIF Free Lunch Program or Food Stamps
Please block out Social Security numbers that appear on these documents before submitting them for review.
