Does SET offer Scholarships?

SET Water Polo is an athlete-centered organization that firmly believes youth should never be denied the opportunity to participate in organized athletics solely because of an inability to pay the full tuition fee. Therefore, SET offers a limited amount of financial aid per training session for current members who experience financial difficulties and demonstrate need, subject to the availability of funds.   All inquiries concerning financial assistance should be addressed to the Club Director, Bradley Schumacher.
