AYSO Region 1187 - American Canyon


AYSO is honored to offer two types of scholarships for families with children who want to play soccer in our area.


    • Jennifer Ramirz Scholarship
    • Foster Kids Scholarships


Jennifer Ramirez Scholarship


In the fall of 2012, our league tragically lost Jennifer Ramirez.  Jennifer lit up the fields with her smile, her excellent soccer skills and her vivacious personality. Jennifer loved the game of soccer and always gave 100% to her team.

Jennifer's parents have graciously allowed our region to set up this scholarship for families who may be experiencing a temporary fiscal hardship, and have children who want to enjoy the game of soccer.

AYSO Region 1187 is honored and proud to provide the Jennifer Ramirez Scholarship. If you are interested in applying for a Jennifer Ramirez scholarship, please download the following file, print, fill out and return to AYSO, Region 1187. You may eMail the completed application to:  [email protected]

Foster Kids Scholarship

Over the past 20 years, government has cut numerous programs and support for Foster Families. AYSO Region 1187  wanted to help fill the gap created by the cut in funding because our board believes—and it is generally acknowledged—that extracurricular activities can help children in a myriad of ways.

Physical activity is important for optimal health, growth and development of children. Mentally, sports stimulate intellectual development, sharpen motor skills and provide emotional and social growth. Children involved in sports have higher self-esteem and more self-confidence.

Through sports, children find increased energy, longer attention spans and better communication skills. Sports serve as a positive model to follow when approaching other challenges and obstacles throughout life. The connection between academic success and athletics is strong. Teamwork, perseverance, commitment, sportsmanship, loyalty and dedication are other positives children learn through sports.

Our goal is to ensure that foster children are given every opportunity to mature into well-rounded individuals who will succeed for themselves and for society.

Former councilwoman Joan Bennett and the Napa Valley Vintners Association are a proud supporter of the AYSO Foster Kids Scholarship program.  If you would like to make a donation to support the Foster Kids Scholarship Fund, please contact our region at: [email protected]
