Financial Assistance

Financial Aid Program Instructions & Application

The Financial Aid Program (FAP) exists to try to ensure that players from financially challenged families and/or at risk players are not prevented from playing soccer at Michigan Jaguars FC for financial reasons. Though Michigan Jaguars FC cannot assure that we will fund every request; every effort will be made to help those families with legitimate needs to the extent funds may be available.


  • Fill out the application completely. Every effort will be made to maintain confidentiality. Before you submit your application, you will be asked to include a statement of extraordinary circumstances that make it difficult for you to pay Club fees and training costs.
  • The FAP operates on a “needs based” model, based on family income, number of family members, potential number of players requesting financial assistance and available funds.
  • Special circumstances are generally the catalyst for funding under the FAP. Large medical expenses not covered by insurance, loss of income due to illness or unemployment are taken into consideration. Be sure to include applicable issues in your written explanation submitted with your application.
  • You are responsible for paying any team fees and uniform costs. These expenses are not covered by the financial assistance.
