Financial Assistance Programs
The following Financial Assistance Programs are provided by Ottawa TFC as a courtesy to help families needing financial support for their child (or children) to be able to play soccer and be healthy.
Ottawa TFC provides a family discount for families registering 3 or more children in the club for a single season. The discounts will be applied to children who register for the following: Grassroots Programs (not Skills Centre), U9-U18 Open/Recreational and U9-U18 Base Competitive registration ONLY.
|Register 3 children and get $105 off|
|Register 4 children and get $160 off|
|Register 5 children and get $225 off|
|Purchase 6 children or more, contact the club|
For adult players playing in multiple open/recreational leagues at Ottawa TFC, the club offers a $50 discount to those playing in three leagues in a single season, and a $100 discount to those playing in four leagues in a single season.
A senior discount of 10% is also offered to senior players playing in Ottawa TFC programs. To qualify, players must be 60 years of age or older in the season that they are playing in. Qualifying players are asked to please contact firstname.lastname@example.org prior to registering in order to receive this discount.
The Club will consider your family for financial assistance but we ask our members to apply for Jumpstart funding. Applications for Jumpstart funding should be sent to them as early in the season as possible and can take up to 8 weeks for them to process.
Jumpstart is an independent third party organization that will determine if a person qualifies for financial assistance based on a set of criteria. By having an outside organization review this information, your financial situation is kept private. Jumpstart does not share your financial situation with the Club. Once the decision has been approved, please send a proof of a successful application to email@example.com. Ottawa TFC will then receive a cheque by mail and process it to your account.
Qualifying families with players in advanced programs (Academy and competitive) may be given further financial assistance pending approval from the board of directors. Again, this will only be considered after the family has been successfully approved by the Jumpstart application process.
KidSport Ottawa provides grants to help cover the costs of registration fees so that all kids aged 18 and under in Ottawa can play a season of sport.
