This Fund was developed to honor Madelon's devotion to the Sunnyvale Alliance Soccer Club (SASC).
She started working with the Club around 1978 and continued to work in various positions until her unexpected death in 1995.
Madelon expended tremendous amounts of time for registration, equipment, and uniforms, with her husband
coaching and children playing. Her work continued through the good times and
the bad times without hesitation.
One wish Madelon had was financial assistance for youths playing high level soccer. The cost to parents for youths chosen to play on regional or national teams or teams achieving regional or national competition is high. She had first hand knowledge of the costs involved and worried for the other youths' parents, too.
The Madelon Medina Fund was developed when SASC had a large pool of money slated to start the fund. Continued financing of the fund is suggested as one dollar for each registered youth per season when the fund drops below $2500. The fund will be used for youths or teams achieving out of state invitational play or training.
The fund is available to players registered on competitive SASC teams, or to competitive teams registered with SASC having a minimum of six Sunnyvale residence players. The teams can either be CYSA or US Club registrations, but must be an SASC team and players. The fund will not discriminate between family income levels for the youths. A person or team must request funds from the board with proof of high level soccer play available.
When funds are available, the following amounts can be distributed:
