Albion SC is proud to introduce to you, the Albion 12 Foundation. This new Foundation will be a game changer for several different needs. Many have requested the ability to give to an entity which will provide dedicated scholarships to those in need, scholarships to our athletes who have demonstrated amazing academic success, leadership and athletic programming for our players, and assistance with much needed and anticipated field development and operations.
In short, the Albion 12 Foundation brings the concept of the “12th” player to Albion SC. The 12th player tradition in modern sports has taken on significant ramifications, ranging from “outside play calling” in collegiate and professional sports, to active and passive support of athletic institutions to meet the respective needs of individual players. The concept allows direct involvement by existing members, alumni, and outside organizations, to confer a benefit upon athletes and causes worthy of attention.
In the realm of youth sports, this concept has maximum impact, and in fact provides an opportunity to actually influence and change the lives of players, not just in athletics, but in their daily, off the field, lives. By impacting our children’s lives in this manner, we are not only addressing a present need, but in many cases, helping to build a future.
This impact may be subtle at first, but may provide an impetus for continued and future athletic and academic momentum.
