VYS is committed to ensuring that children seeking to play soccer within Vienna not be prevented from doing so by financial hardship. The club does not want to turn away any player because the player lacks the financial means to play.
All players (1) are asked to pay state and county fees. These fees are currently $14.50 for house players and $18.50 for travel players. This fee can be paid at online registration.
VYS can provide equipment voucher for shin guards, soccer socks, and soccer cleats for those in need of assistance.
Travel players may request team assistance not to exceed a specified amount per player per season set by the VYS Board of Directors (currently $400). Travel team funding raising events are expected to be the primary source of funding for travel players in need of financial assistance. Beginning with the 2011 spring season, travel teams must provide documentation of funding raising events along with requests for financial aid.
Applicants will be asked to provide documentation to substantiate their financial aid applications, which will include any of the following:
- Current Proof of Eligibility for Free or Reduced Lunch Programs;
- Current Proof of Eligibility for Temporary Assistance to Needy Families Program (TANF);
- Current Proof of Eligibility for Food Stamps;
- Current Federal Tax 1040 forms (first page only) with W-2 and 1099s filed by all members of the household;
- Current Virginia State 76X series tax form (first page only) with W2 and 1099s filed by all members of the player’s household.
If an applicant does not have any of the above documents but still wishes to apply for financial aid, the applicant will need to provide a written request outlining the circumstances in order to assist the Committee in making a decision. When a player from a travel team requests financial assistance, the team must submit a copy of the team budget for the season, with a break-down of the per player cost.
