The purpose of the SVU Financial Aid program is to provide financial support for families with the greatest need so that they may participate in SVU programs without financial hardship. Financial aid is available in the fall and spring for qualifying families in the Recreation and Travel programs based on demonstrated need and SVU’s ability to fund the assistance.
Financial Aid Application and Approval
All families requesting financial aid must complete a Financial Aid Form. All financial aid requests will be reviewed by a committee and will be kept confidential. Applicants for financial aid MUST APPLY EACH TAX YEAR (April 15-April 15), with complete and current Information. The level of aid for which an applicant qualifies can be requested for programs throughout the year. However, each financial aid request must be approved for each program. Each financial aid request is subject to available funds. Any financial aid awards given will apply only to the current program registration.
Completed Financial Aid Forms may be emailed to the SVU Support Team [email protected], mailed or dropped off at the SVU Office (SVU Soccer, 325 Cornerstone Lane Harrisonburg, VA 22802)
Financial Aid Coverage
Financial aid is applied to registration fees only. It does not apply to uniform or other equipment expenses or any additional tournament fees or expenses. The total amount of aid will not exceed 50% of the registration fee.
The amount of financial aid provided may vary by family. The amount is determined based on participation in public assistance programs (Medicaid, Free/Reduced Lunch Program, etc.), or by documenting income within established limits, as well as the total amount of aid offered to all other participants during the season.
The aid approved on that form will only apply to the current program you applied for. Any aid requested for additional programs (camps, clinics, additional training, etc.) will need to be submitted in writing. Submitting a new application is not necessary within the same tax year. Not all programs are eligible for financial aid.
