BSC Financial Aid Program

BSC is committed to offering the highest quality programming at the most affordable price with the goal to offer the highest value possible for every dollar spent on soccer. We appreciate that not everybody can afford to pay the full fees, and as such, BSC is committed to offering avenues for all players to play soccer. Making the game affordable for every committed player is a core value of BSC.

BSC Financial Aid processes are guided by:

  • Family needs
  • Number of children in a family
  • Number of players in BSC Soccer
  • Family Income
  • Overall Financial Situation

Families are eligible to apply for BSC Financial Aid through the BSC website. All financial and personal information is considered highly confidential and this information is not shared with anyone outside the Financial Aid Committee. For the privacy of our applicants, all documentation provided will be destroyed or returned (upon request). 

PLAYER FEES = REGISTRATION FEES + TEAM FEES


REGISTRATION FEES

  • Each BSC Competitive soccer player must pay a $300 registration fee to play soccer in BSC payable at the time of registration. The only exceptions to this rule are:
  • Players who receive Free Lunches through their School District are eligible to pay a $100 registration fee at the time of registration. The remaining $200 registration fee is added to their remaining player fee based on the team in which they are placed and must be paid. BSC Financial aid can assist with all fees but all players must register to be placed on a team.
  • Player who receives reduced Lunches through their School District are eligible to pay a $150 registration fee at the time of registration. The remaining $150 registration fee is added to their remaining player fee based on the team in which they are placed and must be paid. BSC Financial aid can assist with all fees but all players must register to be placed on a team. 

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 sex, race, color, creed or religious beliefs.
  • While we try to address as much of the need as possible, Financial Aid amounts will be based on the number of players demonstrating need, the extent of that need and the budget available for Financial Aid that year.
  • Financial Aid awards will be reviewed on a yearly basis.
  • NO player will receive a scholarship for 100% of their fees
  • The highest awarded scholarship will be 75%
  • Other awards are 50% and 25%
