Scholarship Program

Introduction

Arapahoe Little League firmly believes that each child who wishes to play baseball or softball should be able to do so regardless of skill, gender, or financial circumstances. Our league will make every effort possible to assist players experiencing financial hardship. 

Scholarship Eligibility Requirements

Those seeking a scholarship must explain the nature of the hardship and/or provide documentation supporting the request. Applications will be reviewed by the scholarship committee and families will be notified of the committee’s decision prior to uniform handout.

Specifically, to be eligible for a scholarship, the following information must be provided to Arapahoe Little League ([email protected]):

(Please note: Submission of these documents does NOT guarantee a scholarship will be granted. Scholarship requests will be considered once each of the following items has been submitted and the application is complete.)

  • A complete Scholarship Application with a detailed explanation of the financial hardship and supporting documentation, which includes a Free or Reduced Lunch Application approved by your player’s school. Additional documentation may be requested as needed. Please email [email protected] to request a scholarship application.
  • Arapahoe Little League Registration Form (May be completed online at www.arapahoelittleleague.com or in person at the field house when league volunteers are available.)
  • Proof of Residency - indicating that the player(s) reside(s) within Arapahoe Little League boundaries. (Please click on the Residency tab above to view league boundaries. Note: Softball players do NOT need to live within league boundaries. Documentation for residency includes report cards that include the player's school address, driver's license, car insurance documents, etc.)
  • Birth Certificate - indicating that the player(s) meet(s) Little League requirements in order to play in Arapahoe Little League.

What Every Parent and/or Guardian Should Know About the Scholarship Process

Before submitting the scholarship request form to Arapahoe Little League ([email protected]), parents and/or guardians should understand the following:

  • The scholarship eligibility requirements
  • Submission of the scholarship request documents does NOT guarantee a scholarship will be granted. Scholarship requests will be considered once the application and all supporting documentation is received.
  • The deadline to submit scholarship documentation by email is Wednesday, April 18th at 11:59 pm.
  • The deadline to submit scholarship documentation in person is Sunday, April 15th at 3 pm.
  • The scholarship committee will meet to review complete applications. Families will be notified of the committee’s decision by email before uniform hand out.
  • All baseball and junior/senior softball players are required to provide a $50 uniform deposit. T-ball and major/minor softball players provide a $25 uniform fee. The $50 deposit is refundable once required volunteer hours are complete. The $25 t-ball and major/minor softball fee is not refundable as these players keep their uniforms at the end of the season. If your player is selected to an All-Star team, the $50 uniform deposit pays for the All-Star uniform. Major/minor softball players selected to play on All-Star teams will be asked to pay $25 on top of the $25 uniform fee to cover the cost of the All-Star uniform.
  • All Arapahoe Little League families are required to complete volunteer hours to support the league. Scholarship families are required to complete additional volunteer hours in exchange for the scholarship. Please review the Arapahoe Little League Scholarship Family Volunteer Hours document for more information.
