Financial Aid

 

CLUBHOOPS BASKETBALL CLUB is pleased to offer a Financial Aid Program for the families of youth players who are in need of financial assistance in order to participate in select basketball programs. The CLUBHOOPS BASKETBALL CLUB Financial Aid Program is available to youth players with demonstrated need that meet all character and qualification requirements.  Financial aid amounts are limited, vary, and are on a first come, first served basis. Financial aid is applied towards player club fees and does not cover the cost of uniforms, travel, camps, clinics, or tournament fees.

You must register for financial aid by the deadlines listed below, and submit both the application and all required documentation online as part of the process.  Failure to follow all rules and submit all documentation will result in automatic disqualification.

Financial aid requests are strictly confidential. Information provided is for the sole purpose of assessing financial aid eligibility and will not be shared with anyone except the CLUBHOOPS BASKETBALL CLUB Financial Aid Committee.

Financial aid can range from 25%-70% depending on need and available funds. Submission of the financial aid application does not guarantee that the participant will receive financial aid.

In order to be considered for financial aid, the following documents must be submitted ONLINE:

  • Completed Financial Aid application

  • First page of last year’s federal income tax return (Please remove your Social Security Number from any uploaded documents.)

  • Most recent report card (If beginning of school year, please submit last year’s report card)

  • Athlete Essay (tell us about you and why you should be selected for the scholarship)

 

Please note that if there are multiple players in a family, the same application and tax documents can be used for each player, but each athlete must register separately and submit a separate application, report card, and athlete essay.

In return for financial aid, CLUBHOOPS BASKETBALL CLUB financial aid recipients are required to volunteer their time at CLUBHOOPS BASKETBALL CLUB events and various facility clean up days (TBD). Volunteer hours will be monitored and approval of future financial aid will be contingent on completion of volunteer requirements.
