The Leaside Baseball Financial Assistance Scholarship
The Leaside Baseball Association provides an opportunity for players in Leaside and the surrounding community to develop their skills and passion for baseball by offering a wide spectrum of quality baseball instruction and programming. To make this more feasible for youth who otherwise wouldn’t be able to enjoy the sport, we are proud to offer a financial assistance program. Leaside Baseball is committed to an equitable baseball experience for all of our families.
At designated times during the year, our Leaside Baseball Play Ball Financial Assistancew Scholarship Selection Committee will review applications and recommend to the Board to grant funding to support player fees associated with participation in the Leaside Baseball's Elite, Rep, Select, House League, Camp and Clinic programs.
The Leaside Baseball Board of Directors is committed to allocating funds to the program on an annual basis.
