How Funds are Being Used:

  • Scholarships- EAYSF continues to award scholarships to graduating male and female seniors each year, totaling $1,500 per year. 
  • Travel Teams - EAYSF supported Marion's U-12 travel teams in the Fall of 2015 and Spring of 2016. Beginning in the Fall of 2016, EAYSF will support three teams (U-14, U-12, and U-10). 
  • Additional Programs - EAYSF continues to look for additional ways to improve and support soccer in SWVA.
