Every year CRYSC is committed to making soccer accessible for families across the Front Range. Below you will see the new process for applying for Financial Aid, as well as the deadlines associated with your program. Once the deadline has passed for your particular age group/program, there will be no way to apply for Financial Aid, because this is an automatic system. All of CRYSC scholarships are need-based. There will be no Financial Aid provided for Summer Camps; discounts for these programs will be provided at the Camp Directors discretion.
All Financial Aid communication should go to [email protected].
Anyone that joins the club mid-season and is interested in Financial Aid will need to reach out directly to the email above. We can’t guarantee that players who join mid-season will receive Financial Aid due to budget limitations.
Cada año, CRYSC se compromete a hacer que el fútbol sea accesible para las familias en todo el Front Range. A continuación, verá el nuevo proceso para solicitar ayuda financiera, así como los plazos asociados con su programa. Una vez que haya pasado la fecha límite para su grupo de edad / programa en particular, no habrá forma de solicitar ayuda financiera, porque este es un sistema automático. Todas las becas de CRYSC se basan en las necesidades. No se proporcionará ayuda financiera para los campamentos de verano; los descuentos para estos programas se proporcionarán a discreción de los directores del campamento.
Toda la comunicación de ayuda financiera debe dirigirse a [email protected].
Cualquiera que se una al club a mitad de temporada y esté interesado en la ayuda financiera deberá comunicarse directamente con el correo electrónico anterior. No podemos garantizar que los jugadores que se unan a mitad de temporada reciban ayuda financiera debido a limitaciones presupuestarias.
Types of Scholarships
If you are interested in Financial Aid, the first step is to apply for a Club Scholarship. All players must first apply for a Club Scholarship, including all Recreational and Competitive players of all ages. This is the default scholarship offered to all qualifying families based on family income levels.
Zarlengo and Dr. Bob Contiguglia Scholarships
These two scholarships will be by invitation only. The invitations will come from the Financial Aid Department. Players must apply for Financial Aid through the process described in the Recreational and Competitive menus.
Zarlengo scholarships are for Latino players only, boys and girls.
Dr. Bob Contiguglia Scholarship is for four elite-level players, two boys and two girls each year.
If you have recommendations for potential applicants, please send an email to [email protected] with the player’s name, your contact information, and a brief explanation of why you think they qualify. Regardless of their qualifications, all potential candidates must apply for Financial Aid through the general process by the deadline in order to receive an invitation to apply for Zarlengo or Dr. Bob Contiguglia scholarships.
As youth sports start back up, many kids may not return to play because of costs. The DICK’S Sporting Goods Foundation is proud to announce a $5,000,000 Sports Matter grant to Every Kid Sports, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, to provide income restricted families financial assistance to cover registration fees and help ensure every kid has a chance to play. This scholarship is for recreational players only.
Chance Sports is a scholarship organization that provides assistance to Colorado youth from families with financial need, to access elite sports programs and to learn leadership and team-building skills that will benefit them on and off the athletic field. Chance Sports is proud to partner with Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Clubs in support of their athletes.
