On Giving Tuesday, we ask for your help to contribute to our scholarship fund for our athletes and the community that need assistance! The V&S Foundation is continuing its support of one of Bethesda with a $15,000 dollar-for-dollar match during Giving Tuesday.
While the club’s most recognizable moments may be its national championships and other outstanding on-field performances, its most important contributions could be the opportunities it provides its scholarship athletes every season.
Bethesda Soccer Club is pleased to offer a scholarship program to help families offset club fees. The club has a limited number of scholarships available, and the number of players receiving aid and the amount of the scholarship will vary depending on the funds available. Scholarships are funded by contributions, camp, and tournament proceeds.
