YAS
Basketball Camps Bursary Subsidies

Published February, 2022


The YAS bursary program was established in 1996 to subsidize YAS camps fees for players in circumstances where they cannot afford all the YAS camps fees. Over the last two years, (2020 and 2021) the YAS bursary program “confidentially” underwrote the camp fees totaling over $20,000.

An application for YAS subsidized funding must be made by a parent, guardian, adult extended family member, teacher, principal, coach, recreation administrator, or another adult in a position of authority on behalf of their youth(s) for whom they are responsible.






Application Process

  1. Acquire and read a YAS 2022 Summer Basketball School brochure. A YAS 2022 brochure can be viewed and downloaded from the YAS web site www.yas.ca or by email request to info@yas.ca or by calling 306-585-2020 or 306-242-2425. Each brochure lists the weekly camps YAS will be holding in Regina and Saskatoon during July and August 2022.
    .
  2. Decide if you wish to register your youth for one or more YAS 2022 summer camps.
    .
  3. Follow the instructions in the brochure to register “on-line” or by “telephone” for camp(s).
    .
  4. Immediately and on the same day that you complete step #3 above, call the YAS office and inform the Camps Director that you need “subsidized bursary funding” to help cover your camp(s) fees. Normally, payment of full camp(s) fee(s) would be required as soon as you registered your youth. However, when someone declares that they need “subsidized funding,” payment of fees can be delayed up to four weeks, but no later than seven days prior to the start of the first camp for which your youth is registered. This will give you time to seek some funding from other sources.
    .
  5. When you contact other funding sources, you can tell them that you have registered for YAS Summer Basketball Camp(s) and that YAS has guaranteed that it will match whatever amount they pay on your behalf up to $150.00.
    .
  6. When you obtain funding from another source(s), that funding must be paid directly to YAS on your behalf. As soon as YAS receives the funding on your behalf from another source(s), YAS will immediately match and credit the same amount toward your camp(s) fee(s) up to $150.00.
    .
  7. If YAS does not receive funding on your behalf at least seven days before the start of the first camp of the summer in which you have registered, you must pay your entire fee on your own.
    .

IMPORTANT NOTES

  1. YAS “subsidy funding” will only be awarded for youths who are neither registered for nor are planning to register for any summer sports camp or sports school other than YAS during July and August 2022, unless that other “summer sports camp or school” has awarded you subsidized fee funding. 
    .
  2. A supply of YAS 2022 Summer Basketball School brochures will be sent to every Saskatchewan school and board office during March for re-distribution to students and parents. During past years, schools and board office staff members have always been very good about sharing information about YAS. However, schools staff members are extremely busy these days, so if anyone did not receive a brochure through their school, they should email info@yas.ca and request one be emailed back to them. Also, a YAS brochure can be viewed and downloaded from the YAS web site at www.yas.ca
    .
  3. The administration of “YAS subsidies” is guaranteed to be handled confidentially and solely by the YAS Administrator and the YAS Camps Director, both retired school principals. No one else, not even teachers and instructors at camps.
