The Club’s annual competition calendar consists of two seasons. The Fall Season that starts on August 1st and the Spring Season that starts on February 1st. However, the club employs a once-a-year registration that commences in mid to late summer. Players are required to commit for the entire year and accept the financial responsibility for the year. Partial registration is not feasible as it is important to form a stable and consistent team for the entire year.
The online registration process opens a few weeks before the Fall season starts and a message will be sent to all returning players via TeamSnap and or Demosphere inviting all current players to register. Players that are trying out with the club or transferring from other clubs will receive an invitation to register as well. Typically, that invitation is extended by one of our coaches during the open tryout period.
Club registration fees for the year are disclosed in the registration system and parents should closely review them prior to accepting the liability and payment plan. In addition, coaches and managers will be able to discuss club fees with new players at the time an invitation is extended.
The club registration fees cover coach compensation, club operations and development, curriculum development, technical directors, and special event management and cover the entire year (both fall and spring seasons).
Team fees, which typically include, field, referee, tournament, league, and other fees are collected by the team and they are not optional. These vary by age group. Consult with your team manager for details. Note: Tournament fees that require overnight accommodations for the coach, are the responsibility of the team.
Everybody must register, accept the financial commitment and pay via credit card so that the payment process can be streamlined and to avoid collection issues.
To allow families to better plan and manage these expenditures the club can only accept credit payments and offers a payment plan comprised of 3 payments. The first payment will be due at registration, the second payment around August 1 and the third payment around October 31. This is a fixed date payment plan and can not be customized as the club does not have the ability to manage multiple payment plans and options.
Please note that payments 2&3 will be automatically charged to the credit card on file based on the dates that were stipulated in the original agreement that was agreed to by the parent at the time of registration. Each parent will receive via email a system-generated receipt that outlines the payment schedule and payment amounts
Club registration is not optional or not at the discretion of the coach. Players that are NOT registered can NOT practice with the team or participate in games.
Returning players that choose not to register by the dealine will be charged a late fee of $100. New players, that have not been with the club previously, upon registration, can request that the late fee be credited or refunded as appropriate.
Players that join the club in January will have to register at that time and agree to the payment plan that covers the Spring season. The same rules apply regarding refunds and adjustments.
