Scholarship Program

Harvester Park Little League (HPLL) firmly believes that each child who wishes to play baseball should be entitled to do so regardless of skill, gender, or financial circumstances. Our league will not deny any child a chance to play baseball due to a financial hardship.
To aid parents who may need assistance with registration fees, HPLL has a comprehensive scholarship program that covers the following areas:
  • Full scholarships that cover all registration fees
  • Partial scholarships that cover a portion of the registration fees
  • Assistance with uniforms and equipment needs that are required to be a part of the team and participate in baseball play
Scholarship Eligibility Requirements
Those seeking a scholarship must explain the nature of the hardship and/or provide documentation supporting the request.
Specifically, to be eligible for a scholarship, the following information must be provided to HPLL:
