Financial Assistance Program
Sporting Nebraska FC Financial Assistance Program
As a non-profit, full service youth soccer club, Sporting Nebraska FC strives to provide an affordable and competitive experience for all Sporting Nebraska FC members. Financial Assistance is provided on a first come, first serve basis, and is based upon the allocated funds set forth by the Finance Committee, along with financial needs of the family.
Financial Assistance is awarded on an annual basis, and is reviewed in conjunction with the Team Formation time frames set by the Nebraska State Soccer Association and can only be submitted and reviewed upon the player receiving an Invitation to join a team. The amount of financial assistance funds available is finite and based upon the budget of Sporting Nebraska FC.
Financial Assistance applications are reviewed by the Finance Committee, which consists of Sporting Nebraska FC board members. Information submitted is confidential and is used for the sole purpose of determining eligibility for financial assistance.
Financial Assistance awarded is only for Registration with Sporting Nebraska FC per NSSA policies. All Team Fees, Personal Travel Fees, Training Kits, Uniforms, Camps, etc… are the sole responsibility of the family, so be sure you are able to budget for those additional costs before applying.
