TCYFL Cares "PLAY FOOTBALL" grants are designed to provide temporary support for young boys and girls in our Member Communities that would like to participate in the TCYFL and do not have the current economic resources to allow them to do so.
In most cases, families will be required to purchase jerseys, pads, or any other equipment that the player keeps.
TCYFL may offer:
To fully assist a family including jersey or shoes.
To provide partial assistance (i.e. registration fee only).
To ask for volunteering of time in lieu of fee.
Offer a payment plan.
A combination of the above (assistance, payment plan, and volunteer).
Qualifications, Rules & Limitations:
TCYFL Executives with direction from all of our honorary families will determine a families need for assistance. Families must be experiencing financial difficulties causing a situation that would otherwise prevent participation in the program.
Families can only take advantage of the Financial Assistance program two times (per player). Only in dire circumstances will this rule be waived. This is to encourage availability to more families.
Assistance from TCYFL Cares may be in one of several forms. Families will need to submit a statement of need for financial assistance. The committee, at its sole discretion will determine if a family's needs qualify for the financial assistance program and if grants are still available.
Statement of need must include
Member Community and level requested (Feather, Middle, etc.)
Narrative of not more than 300 words explaining the situation and why a "PLAY FOOTBALL" grant is being requested including type of assistance desired. Please include all information your feel would be helpful to the committee in making their decision. Family may request to be put on a payment plan only.
Commitment stating that if the situation changes, the family will participate with the TCYFL program in the normal fashion so that the TCYFL may support another less fortunate family.
To get started please fill out the contact form below:
Financial Assistance applicants and information, including historical information will be kept confidentially by the president, secretary and treasurer of TCYFL and will be made available to the Executive Board on an as needed basis.
After review by all vested parties, the family will receive an email or letter in the mail as to the status of their payment. Most likely, the family will be contacted by phone by the chairperson of the committee to go over the committee's recommendation. The conversation shall provide the final details of the level of assistance, which will then be sent to the family in a written notice.
