The EZ Scholarship
In an effort to meet/balance the needs of our members and the intentions of our donors SSWSC program fees have been simplified to one price for residents, and a non-resident price for certain competitive programs. The EZ Scholarship is then offered to offset the cost of program fees for eligible local families to provide more of our local youth with the opportunity to participate in our programs. There is no application for the EZ Scholarship; it is applied to all resident registrants based off of their previous year’s tax return.
Summer/Winter SSWSC Program Fee Scholarship
This scholarship is intended to assist SSWSC families with their SSWSC program fees based on financial need. This year, we have a new, optional section to better understand the needs of families financially impacted by COVID-19. Preference will be given to any athlete 18 and under with financial need and desire to participate. Applications are reviewed monthly during the acceptance period.
