Go FFC! Go Navy! Go Blues! Scholarship Fund

Coach Peter Armatis served in multiple roles with Fredericksburg Football Club.  He was a passionate supporter of the Rec Program, he served as a Travel coach for both Red and Black Teams, and most served as a member of the FFC Board of Directors.  Peter loved the Beautiful Game, and he was committed to teaching young players how to play it the right way.  He was always looking for opportunities to learn more and to improve himself as a coach.  Peter shared that love of learning the game with his players, and he always encouraged them to strive to make themselves better.

This Fund was created in memory of Peter's passion for the game, his commitment to Fredericksburg FC and his devotion to his players.  Any money raised will be used to help supplement players in need to cover the costs of playing for the club that he cared so much about, as well as for a yearly college scholarships awarded to one male and one female FFC player.

The Scholarship is overseen by a Scholarship Committee.  The Committee will accept applications each year and funds will be distributed based on need.  All funds granted to families will be approved by the entire Committee.
