Overview

Financial assistance is provided through the Ballistic United Soccer Club and is intended to provide opportunities for financially disadvantaged Pleasanton and other qualifying youth players to participate in BUSC competitive soccer programs.

Qualifying BUSC competitive soccer players may apply for and be considered for financial awards covering Club program and training fees. These awards may defray up to 100% of the Club fees comprised of coaching and technical director salaries, program administrative expenses, field expenses, goalkeeper training, and other related program costs.  Uniform, tournaments, and other miscellaneous team fees are NOT INCLUDED in the costs that can be covered by the award.

 Eligibility Criteria

In order to be eligible for the BUSC Financial Assistance program:

  • Must be registered with BUSC for participation in a competitive soccer program
  • Must be a player in good standing with BUSC

Additional Considerations

  • Family Taxable Income
  • Hardship, such as recent loss of permanent employment of primary wage earner
  • Years with BUSC (including recreational soccer)

Application Process

In order to be considered for financial assistance, a player’s parent(s)/legal guardian(s) must submit:
