We will start accepting scholarship requests for Winter 2017-18 starting October 1st.

OAS strives not only to keep our rates affordable but also to provide financial assistance to participants who have limited means.  From beginner to elite athletes, we aim to support aspiring athletes to achieve their goals.  Scholarships are based on merit as measured by financial need, extraneous circumstances, and a willingness to give back to OAS through volunteer opportunities.  Scholarship applicants will be notified by email or phone outlining the scholarship amount and use requirements.  If approved, scholarships typically cover between 25% to 75% of lesson cost.  It will be the applicant’s responsibility to make up the additional payment in order to participate in the requested lesson(s).  


To be considered for a scholarship, your application must be received by OAS no less than two weeks in advance of your first program or lesson date requested.  All scholarships are subject to available funds and must be used in the season in which they are awarded.  Our scholarship program fluctuates from season to season, thus requiring applicants to re-apply for winter and summer if participating in both seasons.


Please keep in mind, along with your scholarship form we should also have your registration form.   Our registration form includes more comprehensive information about yourself and will further our understanding of your goals and background.  If you have not filled out an registration form or have not updated your registration form with us this season, please do so here.
