ASA Scholarship Fund
At the core of ASA’s mission is the commitment from the club to allow all players the opportunity to play soccer regardless of their ability, education or financial standing. In the past year, ASA has pushed especially hard to fulfill this part of our mission with community outreach events, partnerships with city afterschool programs and grassroots efforts in underserved neighborhoods. By doing so ASA has nearly doubled its number of players in need of financial assistance in all of the programs including the Recreation and Travel league teams. The families that are being supported are extremely grateful but at this rate of scholarship population growth we will have to start turning kids away from programs.
