Stratford Little League will not deny any child a chance to play baseball/softball due to a financial hardship. Full or partial scholarships are available. We are committed to providing a program than allows every child to play baseball/softball. Our mission is to offer an affordable program for our players and families while maintaining the financial health and sustainability of the league.
A limited number of scholarships are available based on the leagues annual budget, community sponsorship received, and the overall number of registrars. Since scholarship funds are limited, applicants must meet certain financial criteria, as noted below, and certify that they qualify. Applicants may be asked to provide additional information to prove the player is eligible for a scholarship.
In addition, families applying for a scholarship acknowledge that the league is run by volunteers and there is an expectation that parents/guardians of scholarship recipients will give back to the Stratford Little League by volunteering or in any way they can, as detailed below.
If your son or daughter receives a scholarship please provide help to the league in the following way:
• Volunteer for baseball/ softball team help (must have background check)
• Offer help with Opening Day Festivities
• Assist with Picture Day
• Aid with banner care (hanging and removal)
• Be available to help in the concession stand
• Obtain a sponsorship for our league
IMPORTANT - if you fail to uphold your volunteer obligation you may be disqualified from receiving scholarship from Stratford Little League in the future.
Application information will be kept confidential and will be reviewed anonymously by the Scholarship Fund Committee. No information of any kind will be shared.
