ASA Community Fund

 

ASA Community Fund

 

At the core of Alexandria Soccer's mission is our commitment to ensure all players have the opportunity to play soccer regardless of their ability, education or financial standing. ASA has worked to fulfill this part of our mission with community outreach events, a free afterschool soccer league at Title 1 schools and grassroots efforts in underserved neighborhoods. This outreach has nearly doubled the number of players in need of financial assistance in ASA programs. In 2018 we provided over $300,000 of scholarship support to players of all ages.

With the development of the Community Fund we hope to sustain community outreach and interaction and to maintain our ability to provide scholarship funding. 

The Community Fund helps support:

  • ASA program access through scholarships
  • Equipment for outreach events at schools and recreational centers
  • The Access4All after-school soccer league at Title 1 elementary schools
  • Staffing for city, school and festival events
  • Free specialty clinics (like the girls only Rec Clinic)
  • Improvements and repairs of fields and facilities
