(Financial Assistance Needed)

10u – 15u:

As a part of our goal to reach the entire community, we have adopted the Torch Financial Assistance Needed (FAN) program to make Torch available for lower income families.

To qualify a family must show need, which is demonstrated by providing evidence of Financial Assistance from a reputable social agency or government. As Torch is not a social agency, we rely on and accept the judgment of School Districts, City Governments, Housing Agencies, and even other groups such as the YMCA. We do not decide on our own analysis, but accept the investigation of others.

Amongst the items we accept for showing need are letters of approval from:

·        School/District for reduced price or free lunch (or other meal)

·        City for discounted services for family (e.g., class or sports program voucher)

·        YMCA or other reputable group for reduced fees for programs

·        Government agency for financial assistance with Food or Housing

We want to see a copy of one of the above letters showing need in the last 6 months. Appropriate paperwork must be received by Torch prior to your child’s first practice. Please reach out directly to request assistance, and show need:

This program does not extend to merchandise ordered, off-season clinics, or programs other than Torch Spring/Summer club team basketball.
