Anonymous Grant Paves the Way for Fee Waving Initiative
TAMPA, FL (April 10, 2018) – As a result of an anonymous grant to the Tampa Bay United (TBU) Rowdies, the players selected for the U13 Girls ECNL and Premier teams will have their Club Registration Fees waived for the 2018-19 season. This grant will affect thirty 2006 (birth year) girls players. This is a test/experiment beginning with this age bracket with the ultimate goal to do this with all competitive age groups in the next few years.
The U13 Girls ECNL team will be coached by Diego Viera and the Premier team will be coached by TBU Rowdies CEO, Charlie Slagle.
The families of the players on these teams will pay team fees and volunteer fees.
TBU Rowdies CEO, Charlie Slagle, commented that “this grant is a game-changer for our club. We hope that more age brackets in the boys and girls will be added beginning with the 2019-20 season to this program. We will be seeking funding for more age brackets as we evaluate this new concept.”
ECNL Girls Tryouts will begin week of April 23rd. Specific age groups, dates and times are posted on the TBU web site www.tbusc.com.
The Premier team will be selected at Tryouts beginning the week of May 1st. Specific age group dates and times will be posted soon on www.tbusc.com
