Three available scholarships for our up-coming soccer camp!
As a sub-division of the kidsAfrik program, we want to reach as many children as possible to benefit from the beautiful game of soccer. Not only is it the greatest game ever, but we feel that learning a sport offers many benefits to kids, such as being part of a team, learning how to get along with others, how to be a graceful winner and also able to deal with the disappointment of loosing. Playing a sport gives kids a focus and may even keep them on the path to becoming a healthy adult.
Sometimes the cost of investing in a sport is the obstacle for families' participation and we want as many to benefit as possible so we are providing scholarships for kids based on school performance and family income.
We are providing three scholarships for reduced lunch students (low income family). Each scholarship would be for ages between 6-8, 9-11 and 12-14.
Your cost will be for a full day Camp $125 + $25 Extended day (for the week).
To apply for scholarship :
1) Please fill out these forms:
2) a letter of interest to our program(one paragraph).
Mail all information to POB 2832, Amherst MA 01002 by May 31st.
Our selections will be made through a lottery system and we will let you know by June 15.
