Financial Assistance & Scholarship Program

Financial Assistance:  ESCO is committed to supporting programs that offer high-quality youth soccer that is accessible to everyone. ESCO was formed, in part, to keep soccer affordable and to keep economic barriers from not being a factor in a youth’s participation in playing soccer. For this reason, as long as funds are available, ESCO will make financial assistance available to qualifying players and their families to help pay the professional coaching fees affiliated with club soccer for players from the following northwest suburbs of Illinois: Arlington Heights, Buffalo Grove, Des Plaines, Elk Grove Village, Mount Prospect, Palatine, Rolling Meadows or Wheeling.  Click HERE for the confidential application form and requirements.  Questions? Contact Jay Casaletto at for more details.

Scholarship:  The ESCO Scholarship Fund will be established to support high school senior soccer players who have participated in programs affiliated with Elite Soccer and who intend on continuing their soccer careers in college the next immediate academic year.  Scholarship applications are typically available here each Spring and due at the end of May.
