TJAY SOCCER CLUB IN THE COMMUNITY

TJAY Soccer Club takes its role as a member of the community very seriously.  A variety of TAY Soccer Club programs contribute significantly to the quality of life for all citizens of Frederick County.  The TJAY Soccer Club provides services on an equal-access basis to all residents of Frederick County.

RECREATIONAL SERVICES FOR FREDERICK COUNTY YOUTH

Every year, the TJAY Soccer Club provides soccer participation opportunities for Frederick County youth.  The TJAY Soccer Club is one of the largest youth sports organization in Frederick County and is committed to provide playing opportunities for all youth in the County, regardless of age, location, income, ethnicity, religion, or physical ability.

NEED-BASED FINANCIAL AID FOR FREDERICK COUNTY YOUTH WITH FINANCIAL NEED

The TJAY Soccer Club has an aggressive financial aid program, designed to ensure that all children are able to participate in recreational programs without regard to ability to pay. The TJAY Soccer Club provides more need-based financial aid to Frederick County youths, enabling these children to participate in recreational programs that they may otherwise not be able to.

TJAY CLUB FAMILIES SUPPORT FREDERICK COUNTY FOOD BANKS

Twice each year, TJAY’s Opening Day Event provides our families an opportunity to support the underprivileged through donations to community food banks.  Each season on Opening Day of the Frederick County Youth Soccer League (“FCYSL”), we collect food donations at our home fields at Monocacy Middle School where our teams play; at the end of the day, these donations are taken to the Community Action Agency’s FoodBank in Frederick for distribution to Frederick County’s neediest families.  The generosity of TJAY’s families is an essential resource for the local food bank.
