Financial Assistance

MTW is a player fee driven organization, but one of our goals is to prevent a player or families financial challenges from getting in the way of an opportunity to play the game. The key is inform MTW as soon as possible about your situation. With that in mind, there are several ways to have your fees subsidized.

Also, if at least $100 in eligible fitness expenses has been paid for the child, an additional amount of $500 can be added to the eligible fitness expenses actually incurred.
