A maximum of three (3) awards of financial aid will be provided to players on any one (1) team per season. The Financial Aid Sub-Committee will have the authority to waive the maximum number of allotments per team as they see fit. No player will receive financial aid for both a CASL team and a premier club. All players, receiving financial assistance through CASL are expected to provide 3 hours of volunteer service to a CASL sponsored event, via their Community organization.
The deadline for Spring 2020 was March 1.
The deadline for Fall 2020 is August 30th.
The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic made 2020 a particularly challenging year for CASL. If the resources are available we will provide financial aid. However, at this point, you need to know that we will provide considerably less help than any past season.
