In 1999 the Luigi Pelini Memorial Scholarship Program was established to reward our outstanding travel soccer players. This program was created in honor of Luigi Pelini who founded the Levittown Soccer Club in 1976. Scholarships are awarded to graduating High School seniors who meet the eligibility requirements.
The intention of this award is to recognize those individuals who through their participation in the Levittown Soccer Club, love of youth soccer, and dedication to community service have demonstrated their ability and readiness to contribute and succeed in our society.
The Pelini Fund is a charitable fund that was established as an extension of our scholarship program to provide aide to needy families and support programs in our community as well as fund raise for various organizations.
In addition to supporting community programs, LSC through the Pelini Fund has also established two yearly fundraising events; Kick it to Cancer which is a breast cancer awareness event taking place in October and the Friends of Renz Tournament which is hosted every August. Funds raised from these events are donated to Pink Promises and Hope and Heroes Pediatric Cancer Research respectively. In the 18 year history of these programs, the Levittown Soccer Club has been able to donate more than $200,000 to scholarships and other important causes.
