Great Falls Basketball may grant full or partial registration fee scholarships to children who, without this financial assistance, would not be able to participate in one of our basketball programs. The scholarship program focuses on providing opportunities for area youth to participate in a recreational team sport because of the physical, mental, and character-training benefits this program can provide. Scholarships cover the cost of House registration for recreational teams. For Select registration scholarships cover Select registration and Select team fees. Scholarships are not available to cover any additional costs (uniforms, personal equipment, etc.).
Scholarship requests must be submitted to the Commissioner, in writing or via email, no later than two (2) weeks prior to the start of the applicable select or house tryouts. Scholarships are awarded for one season per registrant; therefore, individual registrants must reapply for each season that they are requesting assistance. Great Falls Basketball is a non-profit organization with a limited amount of funding available for scholarship athletes. No guarantee of assistance is implied in this application. If the number of applications submitted and approved exceeds the amount available; the scholarships shall be awarded by a lottery system.

**Approval of a registration scholarship does not register the participant in the activity. You will be notified of the approval of your scholarship application. That approval notification will include a unique Coupon Code and specify its expiration date. You must still register the athlete with the league and apply the coupon code to reduce the fee required to be paid, if any.**
