Financial Aid

Soccer Chance Academy Portland (SCA) strives to offer the opportunity for all players to participate in our academy program, regardless of financial means or limitations.

General Information

Financial assistance is available for tuition fees only. The member family is responsible for all other attendant costs associated with player participation, such as tournament fees, travel expenses, and uniform. Financial aid is provided for one season at a time – players with continuing needs must reapply each season.

The SCA financial aid committee offers support to qualified players after reviewing all applications confidentially. Parents/Guardians will be notified as soon as the review process is completed.

Financial Aid Eligibility Criteria

Any member family currently receiving government assistance such as welfare, housing assistance, or free or reduced school lunch, may apply for financial aid.


Any member family with financial hardship as determined by the SCA Financial Aid Committee.

Note: SCA requires verification of government assistance and/or tax return verification of financial need to determine player qualification for financial aid assistance.

To apply for financial aid, please complete the on-line application form and a copy of the required verification documents (school lunch program acceptance form or first page of federal tax return). Forms (in sealed envelopes) should be given to Dan Ferguson or Joe Smith at Soccer Chance Academy training sessions or at tryouts.
