What is a scholarship from the Golden Midget Football Association?
A Golden Midget Football Association scholarship is a reduced rate for program fees for the Golden Applewood Midget Football program. A minimum fee of $50 will need to be paid to register your player. Additional program fees may be discounted, depending upon the need and available funds, as determined by the Golden Applewood Midget Football Association (GAMFA) Directors, in its sole and absolute discretion. There are no scholarships available for football equipment although we occasionally have extra pants, pads, etc. and our current equipment supplier MAY be willing to help out with certain equipment needs if a scholarship for Golden Football is granted. See league President for details.
