Financial Assistance Fund:

The Financial Assistance Fund is comprised of financial aid donations and SAHA donations.  SAHA donations are determined at the discretion of the SAHA board when reviewing the annual budget.  Financial assistance does not cover any team fees.  Financial assistance will be granted on a per season basis.  Applicants must reapply each season to be considered for financial assistance.  This is not designed as an annual subsidy, and is limited to 2 years per player.   


Eligibility for Financial Assistance:

a. The applicant must be in good financial standing with SAHA and exhibit a general financial need.

c. The applicant will be asked to donate time to help with their financial request by providing volunteer hours to SAHA to help offset their financial needs.

d. The total amount granted will be evaluated case by case and will not exceed the donations.
