There are multiple ways that KIDSPORTS can assist in making sure all kids that want to play can participate financially:
SCHOLARSHIPS / FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
1/3 or 2/3 off, based on Reduced/Free lunch qualifications
(Award letter or proof of income required, SEE REQUIREMENTS CLICK HERE)
(Apply at the Eugene KIDSPORTS office)
(Vouchers available at child's school)
3rd Child Discount
($10 discount for third child during same sports season, for any sport)
Payment Deferment Plan
(1/2 down at time of registration and then up to 3 payments after the fact)
NOTE: Scholarships cover KIDSPORTS registration fees. Additional fees such as equipment, uniforms and OYSA cards for Klassic soccer players, are not covered.
KIDSPORTS uses the same income guidelines for scholarships as the school districts do to determine who receives free and reduced school lunches. If your children are eligible for free or reduced school lunches, they most likely will qualify for a scholarship from KIDSPORTS. Scholarship amounts are either 1/3 or 2/3 of the registration fee, excluding the facility fee.
Proof of income, unemployment, the award letter stating your child's eligibility for free or reduced school lunches or financial aid MUST be provided. You may also provide a statement of benefits from the Oregon Department of Human Services. It must list your monthly SNAP/EBT benefit amount and be dated within the last six months. We CANNOT accept an Oregon Trail card or OHP/LIPA verification.
Proof of income may be one month of pay stubs with year to date figures OR a tax statement (such as a W2 from the previous year). The award letter may be obtained from the district office (Bethel, 4J orSpringfield, see below for contact information). The district offices will no longer fax us these forms as it is confidential information and KIDSPORTS is a third party recipient. You may request a district staff member to print, mail or e-mail you the award letter which then can be submitted to the KIDSPORTS office.
YOUR CHILD IS NOT REGISTERED UNTIL WE RECEIVE PAYMENT. As a result he or she will not appear on the roster and is ineligible for participation (including practices) until the fees are paid.
If we do not receive payment by the registration deadline, there is no guarantee that KIDSPORTS can hold a place on a team for your child.
Scholarships are NOT available for out of district and High School players. Scholarships awarded are good for most sports for one school year (fee reductions apply for the duration of a single school year, beginning in September and ending the following August). Some clinics, camps and the Lacrosse and Golf programs that are offered through KIDSPORTS do not have scholarships available.
Please contact a KIDSPORTS representative if you have any questions on how to receive scholarship assistance.
