Burke AC and Fairfax County provide registration fee scholarships and/or a Fairfax County provided equipment voucher to help children participate in county sports programs. If you qualify for the school lunch program or other public assistance, you may qualify for the Fairfax County Sports Scholarship program. To take advantage of the scholarship program you must follow these steps:
- Register your child as a SCHOLARSHIP player on the registration page (this is #2 on the registration page) during early or on-time registration.
- Print a copy of the updated Fairfax County Youth Sports Scholarship Program Application (pdf document). Make sure to fill in all the information and sign.
- Make a copy of the required official documentation signifying that the child is receiving aid (i.e. copy of Free/Reduced Lunch letter)
- Mail the Scholarship Application Form and documentation to Burke AC at PO Box 11311, Burke VA 22009 within 10 days of registration.
This signed form will act as your payment of the registration fee. Once the signed form is received by Burke AC, we will mark your child’s registration paid and your child can then be placed on a team. Your child will not be placed on a team until this completed and signed form is received.
There will be no access to scholarship registration during late registration (beginning Feb. 16). All registrations during late registration are credit card only. We do not accept mail in check or scholarship registrations during late registration. This will allow time for you to mail in your paperwork to our PO Box before we submit the batch to the county.
If for any reason Fairfax County does not approve your scholarship application, you will then owe the registration fee to Burke AC. You will need to pay this fee before your child can play.
If you have questions or are having problems with the scholarship registration, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
