RYBA does not want potential participants to be deprived of the chance to play basketball for financial reasons. Therefore, the association has created a scholarship program where families in need can apply for reduced registration fees.
To apply for a scholarship, The Financial Aid Form needs to be completed in its entirety. Scholarship requests are reviewed and once a decision has been made, the Treasurer will email the parent/guardian the decision along with a Discount Code to use during the Registration process.
All RYBA participants that either live within the boundaries of Independent School District 623, or attend a school within those same boundaries, are eligible for scholarships to be applied to toward registration fees.
Scholarships are funded by donations from other families and neighboring businesses. If the number of scholarships needed exceeds the amount of donations, the Association will try to maximize participation by using operating funds to cover the needs of our families.
Scholarships will be awarded for at least 50% percent of the registration fee. Unused scholarships are not transferable and cannot be used for another player. The deadline to apply for a scholarship is August 15th for the travel programs and October 1st for the recreation programs.
