Gianna Rose Vincelett Scholarship and 3v3 Tournament

Sporting CT Members,

We are honored to announce that starting in the fall of 2022 we will award two Sporting CT female athletes with The Gianna Rose Vincelett Scholarship at her family request.

Gianna Vincelett was a member of the Sporting CT 2007 Girls team. Her family is funding a soccer scholarship with Sporting CT in her name because they believe that, like Gianna, children whose families may not otherwise be able to afford it should be able to play soccer at the Premier level.

Gianna loved her Sporting teammates, and their families and other children should be able to enjoy all that Sporting CT has to offer: competitive soccer, great coaching and a family oriented environment.

This scholarship may provide full or partial coverage of Sporting CT’s yearly fees. You can apply by competing the attached application form and returning it as specified.              

Please indicate the circumstances that make this request necessary. Be sure to explain your situation in the most comprehensive manner possible to help us make the appropriate decision. In rare circumstances, your latest Federal and State income tax returns may be requested to verify income.

The executive board of Sporting CT will be responsible for reviewing any scholarship request and their decision should be considered final. Those requesting assistance for the 2022/23 season should submit their application by no later than July 1st 2022 and expect to hear an outcome within 30 days of our receipt of said application. Please email application form to frank@sportingct.com and goran@sportingct.com

*Please note – Scholarships are provided on a yearly basis. Upon completion of the soccer year families must reapply/ be reevaluated in order to receive support again.

Please Note: Should a full or partial scholarship be afforded to your family, it is the expectation of the club that said family/families will help contribute to the running of the program by volunteering to assist in one of the following capacities:

 

  • Tournament Committee
  • Team Manager
  • Sponsorship/Fundraising
  • MYS league manager
  • Uniform/Equipment Distribution
  • Child to assist in the coaching of Academy program

We are also happy to announce that MYS and Sporting CT will run our first 3v3 Gianna Rose Vincelett tournament Sunday August 28th at our fields at 395 Country club road where all benefits from this event will go back to Vincelett family to support more athletes with free or partial scholarship for upcoming years.

Gianna Rose Vincelett Memorial Fund

Hello everyone,

Please find bellow information from Gia grandparents Skip and Debby. We can thank you enough to all our Sporting CT families and others that are not part of our club for reaching out to us and asking how everyone can help Vincelett family in this difficult time.

If you can please donate to the fund set up in the Gia memory.

Regards,

Sporting CT Board of Directors.

To our Sporting CT soccer family,

 

Thank you for the outpouring of support in the past few days. Gia’s friends from soccer and basketball and their families have all reached out to us. We feel thankful that we were able to attend a gathering of Gia’s teammates on Sunday to see the girls and their parents. After many tearful moments initially, everyone was able to begin to remember Gia as the happy, energetic, funny young woman that she was. We hope this gathering helped the girls as much as it helped us. Goran, Andrei, Dylan, Emilie and Frank also attended and we were very glad to see them.

 

Gia’s mom, Megan, is planning a celebration of Gia’s life in the upcoming weeks. We think it will be held on Friday, August 20th.  As soon as the details are finalized we will let you all know. Megan wishes to have one celebration for everyone Gia touched in all aspects of her life. Everyone will be invited.

 

We have set up a memorial fund at Liberty Bank in Haddam. We plan to use the fund to support a soccer scholarship at Sporting CT for a deserving female player and hopefully for a female soccer player from Haddam-Killingworth High School who is going on to play in college.

 

Donations can be sent to:

 

The Gianna Rose Vincelett Memorial Fund

Liberty Bank, Haddam Branch

P.O.. Box 37

116 Bridge Street,

Haddam, CT 06438
