VIRGINIA RUSH COMPETITIVE FINANCIAL AID
Virginia Rush Soccer Club has a limited pool of funds available for financial aid to Competitive players. Members requesting financial aid are required to submit the Financial Aid Packet/Competitive Program. Financial Aid Packets submitted incomplete or missing information will be not considered.
A submitted packet does not imply approval. Financial aid applications may be denied, club fees waived or a portion thereof. Uniform and Team costs are the responsibility of the family. Fundraising opportunities are available to earn team fees.
Financial aid decisions are based on total scholarship funds available, the total player expense, family income, special circumstances, and available funds. All information submitted for financial aid is confidential.
