Need Based Financial Aid

United Futbol Academy (UFA) is pleased to offer a Financial Aid Program for soccer athletes who are in need of financial assistance in order to play soccer. The program is available for all youths and an on-line financial aid application must be initiated by the parents or guardians of the player. The amount of assistance is limited each year, and based on a first-come, first-served basis. Financial aid is based on financial need only, and is not based on playing ability. Financial aid will cover only volunteer, field usage and registration fees. 

Financial aid DOES NOT COVER tournament fees, coaching fees, travel expenses, speed and agility, 3rd training fees, TST, camps, etc.

Financial aid can range from 25% to 100% based on need-based eligibility and available financial aid funds. However, just because we receive a financial aid application, this DOES NOT GUARANTEE that the participant will receive a full or even partial financial aid.

Any player requesting financial aid MUST complete the application, submit a copy of your current tax return and pay a $150 application fee before being considered for a scholarship. The application will be available on April 1 for all returning players. At that time, the application may be found as an  AVAILABLE PROGRAM for your player when logged into your UFA account - select “UFA Mountains Financial Aid Academy/Select 2017-2018”.

Please note: New club polices are in place for ALL financial aid recipients. This information is available on the website. (Hover over About Us>Resources and click on Scholarships.)
