PLAY it Forward Youth Sports Scholarships

"Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire, it has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope, where once there was only despair."

-Nelson Mandela

Yorkville seeks to create hope by providing more opportunities for children to play.  Through our PLAY it Forward initiative, the Yorkville community has made it possible to provide registration fee scholarships that will allow access to youth sports for participants.  Our goal is that as many young people as possible are active and engaged in positive activities.

Scholarship applications must be submitted at least two (2) weeks prior to the beginning of a season.  Yorkville will consider all completed applications received by the application deadline.  Submission of a scholarship application does not guarantee a scholarship.  Awardees will be notified within a week before the start of a season.  Receiving a scholarship does not register the child for the activity.  Once approved for a scholarship, the parent/guardian must still register online for the Yorkville sport for which the scholarship was awarded.  Yorkville does not discriminate based on a person's actual or perceived race, color, national origin, ethnic group, religion, religious practice, disability, sexual orientation, gender or sex.
