Once players have registered, there will be opportunities to apply for financial aid. Our goal as a club is to give players the opportunity to play competitive soccer at a high level regardless of player’s socio-economic status. Unfortunately, we have limited resources and because of this, we strive to keep our fees down and have fundraisers to provide financial assistance to as many players deemed possible.
FC Blazers is a unique organization because 61% of our athletes come from disadvantaged backgrounds. Fundraising is essential in our mission so that we can continue to provide equal opportunities for all athletes regardless of socioeconomic status. Providing financial assistance to the Friends of Blazers program through the Paypal link below will allow us to continue to provide funding to cover club fees, travel expenses, and other costly necessities and enables ALL players to compete in highly competitive tournaments and leagues. Note that at FC Blazers, all funds raised are granted to players based solely on financial need, not on playing ability or skill. Over the past ten years, FC Blazers has helped prepare players for post graduate opportunities in higher education institutions that would not have been financially feasible without the availability of a soccer scholarship. We pride ourselves on our dedication to our players personal and team goals and encourage our players to strive to achieve those successes throughout their youth soccer experiences. We instill values of teamwork, discipline, commitment, respect, and leadership which helps build confidence in our players and creates opportunities for healthy living and academic achievement. Club soccer is a financial commitment for all families and we respect the time and energy everyone gives to the FC Blazers organization. With a club wide annual fundraising initiative involving all of our FC Blazers families, and through generous donations from outside institutions, we can continue to pursue those goals for our players. Clicking on the link and making a donation will give those opportunities to one of our players.
