Financial Assistance

There are a few options for athletes and parents to acquire financial assistance and/or request financial support including:

1.    Payment Schedule Options

The Club is flexible to a different payment schedule than what is set out for the team.  We can create a payment schedule that you are more comfortable with, such as:

  • lower payments extended over a longer period (i.e. October - May vs. October to March)
  • perhaps you can commit a lower payment in the first few months, but may have a more funds in the Spring (i.e. tax refund).

2.  Subsidies/Foundation Options

There are several community funds that are available to athletes that parents can apply for, including:

A.  Maverick Athlete Benevolent Fund

B)  Other Fundraising / Sponsorship Options

  • Teams may choose to host a tournament or other fundraisers such as bottle drives, raffles, sell cheese or chocolate to reduce the cost of registration. Some parents may want to opt out of this, but there may be parents who also would like to apply their fundraising efforts directly to their fees. Discuss these options with your team manager.
  • Teams choosing to host a Tournament Canteen can approach companies to sponsor the food, thus increasing their fundraising total. Attached is a template for a food and beverage donation letter that you can modify and hand out to potential sponsors (such as Gatorade, Metro or Loblaws, etc.)
  • Teams may acquire team sponsors - funds are directed to the Team budget and a formal letter is provided to the sponsor for business purposes. Logos/signage may be required based on the sponsor benefits as agreed with a potential sponsor.
  • Individuals can provide in-kind donations that are budget-relieving items (i.e. donating use of van vs. renting a van - the retail cost of the rental could be applied as an in-kind donation). This would have to be agreed upon among the team manager, treasurer& coach.
