In keeping with our goal to give every child in Southern Arizona an opportunity to participate in our programs, FC Tucson Youth Soccer Club is pleased to announce that the Arizona Soccer Association's MaxInMotion Scholarship Program has awarded more than $18,000 in grants to FCTYSC families for the 2018-19 season. On behalf of the 95 players receiving assistance and their families, FCTYSC would like to express its appreciation to the ASA staff and the MaxInMotion Foundation for making this critical, generous program available to our needy families. Below are some of the comments from our recipients:
"Thank you so much for helping me be part of the FC Tucson family so that I have the opportunity to play with a great team who have become such great friends. I really, truly appreciate the help. I couldn't do it without people and organizations like you."
"Our family is from South Korea and we have been in financial need all the time because I have a student in U of A with F1 VISA. In this regards, as a parent, I am very happy to let my son keep playing soccer with your support.
Again, your financial aid means a lot to our family, and we are very grateful to ASA as well as FC Tucson, FCTYSC all the time!"
I am the mother of (two) recipients of the MaxInMotion scholarship for 2018-2019. We are incredibly indebted to you and very, very grateful for your generosity and consideration in awarding the scholarship. My children are young at 11 and almost 8 years old, but they understand the meaning of being selected for this scholarship and we are all very proud.
My children are very committed to Soccer and they even want to take it to a professional level. My husband and I have always tried to give them the best opportunities so they will have a bright future and we believe that sports is very important in their development as healthy people as well as team players. Without these scholarships that they have received, this would be a very difficult task for us.
I want to leave you knowing that my children are great kids with tremendous athletic abilities and even greater character. They love helping others in need and want to part-take in community services when they can. I wish that one day they can continue the legacy that MaxInMotion is leaving with us and we will continue to help children in need.
Thank you very much for your time and generosity."
"On behalf of myself and my daughters, I would like to say thank for the Max in Motion award. As a single mother I often sit and wonder how I am going to make it all work. This helps to relieve a little bit of stress when trying to figure out how I will cover this on my own. Their love and dedication to game is what keeps me going!
My girls and I are very grateful for your generosity and will continue to work hard at achieving their goals."
"Dear Max In Motion,
I am sincerely honored to have been selected as the recipient of this scholarship. Thank you for your generosity, which has allows me to play soccer with a club that I love. Not only have I learned a lot about the sport of soccer but I have made very close relationships with my teammates.
As I continue playing for FC Tucson, I am very thankful for receiving your thoughtful gift. Because of your scholarship, I will continue to learn the game and become a better player and citizen off and on the field.
Thank you again for your thoughtful and generous gift."
