Zimmerman Youth Softball Scholarship Program


Introduction

Zimmerman Girls Fastpitch Association firmly believes that each child who wishes to play softball should be entitled to do so regardless of skill or financial circumstances. Zimmerman Fastpitch Association offers scholarships for players where the registration fees would pose a hardship for the family and will make every effort possible to provide that opportunity.


ZFA Scholarship Program

ZFA has a limited amount of scholarships available to aid parents/guardians who need assistance with registration fees. ZFA has scholarships available that cover the following:

  • Full Scholarships that covers all registration fees.

  • Partial Scholarships that cover a portion of the registration fees.
