Petaluma Panthers Football and Cheer


Scholarship Information & Requirements

Petaluma Panthers scholarships will cover 50% of Football and/or Cheer registration payment. For the 2024 season we are providing two football scholarships and two cheer scholarships.  These will be first come, first served, so please gather your paperwork. Only those who provide the appropriate paperwork and 50% payment upon approval will be considered. If you are denied the scholarship, you will be expected to pay the remaining balance or risk losing your roster spot.

The Petaluma Panther Football & Cheer Scholarship Assistance Program focuses on providing opportunities for youth in our community to participate in football & cheer for the physical, mental, and character-training benefits our program can provide. Petaluma Panthers provides registration fee scholarships to these youth who, without financial assistance, would not be able to play.

Please be aware that Petaluma Panthers is a non-profit organization that relies primarily on our fundraising to support our program, including our ability to provide scholarships. The goal of our Scholarship Assistance Program is to help as many young people in need participate in Petaluma Panthers that we possibly can.
