Bob Masi

The Bob Masi Scholarship was named in honor of Bob Masi many years ago.  Sadly, Bob lost his battle with cancer at that time but not before leaving his mark as a wonderful person, coach, and devoted father and husband.

All three Masi boys played for Seacoast United and each of them have the distinct honor of being captains at their respective colleges.  Joe Masi was captain at Stonehill College, Michael Masi at Bates College, and Eric Masi at the University of New Hampshire.  Their ability, leadership, sportsmanship, and competitive edge on and off the field is a credit to how they were brought up by their parents and a wonderful tribute to Bob’s devotion to his life as a father, player, and coach.

Bob Masi Memorial Scholarship

The Bob Masi Scholarship was created to help support families in need of financial assistance with soccer tuition fees. Bob Masi was a father of three former Seacoast United players who lost his battle with cancer several years ago.  His sons Joe, Michael, and Eric all went on to captain their collegiate teams at Stonehill College, Bates College and the University of New Hampshire respectively.  

This scholarship will help support eligible families with partial payment of their travel soccer club registration fees.

Families receiving these awards must remain up to date with their fees, must complete 10 hours of service with Seacoast United Sports Club at one or more of their events, and must volunteer with at least one foundation event throughout the 2017/18 Season. When all of those requirements are met, the scholarship will be applied to the athlete's account. You will not see this scholarship on your account until that time.  

Applications for the 2017/18 Bob Masi Scholarship will be accepted until July 15, 2017.
