PCVC Scholarships

PCVC is aware that financial issues for many may cause a concern to families when considering participation in J.O. We believe all children should have access to sports regardless of a family’s financial situation. For this reason, PCVC has worked hard to find a solution and is in the process of adopting a scholarship program for qualified families to participate at PCVC.
