Financial Aid - Recreational Program, Tots, Future Stars, Training Programs, Camps, Etc.

DC Stoddert Soccer is committed to supporting player participation in all of its programs, regardless of ones’ financial circumstances. Effective January 2019, DC Stoddert Soccer is implementing a new financial aid approach that applies to all DC Stoddert Soccer programs (except for the Travel program, which has a separate policy and process). Qualification is based on demonstrated financial need, date of application, and is subject to availability. Players approved for financial aid are expected to pay only 25% of the regular program cost. Additional and Late fees are not covered by financial aid; late registrants still owe fees.

Here’s how DC Stoddert’s Financial Aid Program works: 

  • Check the box requesting financial aid during the registration process
  • Provide one of these appropriate documentations to DC Stoddert Soccer for review for your qualification (Any documentations submitted are kept confidential)
    • A current Free or Reduced Lunch eligibility letter usually works best
    • Proof of an active Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) account 
    • Most recent U.S. Individual Income Tax Return (1040 Form) that filed with IRS for the household that claims the player as a dependent **(Please black out all SSN before submitting)**
  • Submit documentation via email ([email protected]), mail (4620 Wisconsin Ave. NW, Suite A, Washington, DC 20016), or by showing documentation in person at the office between the hours of 10am and 4pm, Monday through Friday
  • If documentation is sufficient, you are all set!  If it is insufficient, we will contact you.

Documentation has to be submitted within 48 hours of completing registration. If documentation is not received prior to the start of the season’s opening day, you will be charged the full price of the program. No exceptions will be made.

Once approved, a child is eligible for financial aid for all programs (except the Travel Program) for a full twelve (12) months, after which a renewal is required.

Anyone with questions about financial aid can contact [email protected] or 202-338-1910 ext. 10.

Financial Aid - Travel Program

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, full or partial fee waivers are available to Travel Program players who qualify, based on income guidelines set by the Club.

Application Process:

1. If offered a spot on a team, confirm your player's spot by registering and paying a $200 deposit.
2. Complete a Financial Aid Application (Solicitud Para Ayuda Financiera en Espanol).  To be eligible for Financial Aid you must submit an application by Friday May 18 at 5 p.m. if you are a current DC Stoddert Family, or by Monday May 21 if you are new to the club.  Applications received after the deadline will not be reviewed. A deposit of $150 is due on May 23, the date by which you must accept your spot

Applications will not be reviewed if any information or documentation is missing.  Award notification will be made by email to parent or guardian. Depending on the level of award, families may be responsible for paying uniform expenses, travel, or other team and club expenses.

Application Requirements:

A copy of one of the following must be submitted with this application:

  • US Federal Income Tax Return (form 1040), page 1 only for the household that claims the player as a dependent
  • Proof of eligibility for Free Lunch Program or Food Stamps

Deposit of $150 (paid by May 23)
