Club Costs

Our Costs to Play - for the 2023/24 Competition Year

We strive to provide the highest value competitive soccer in the area.  As a not-for-profit we focus all of our fees are applied for the betterment of the Club and its players.  No single individual or ownership group owns the club or profits from our athletes ... as such, we are dedicated to maintaining relatively low operational costs while offering the highest quality soccer.  The value of USA is superior ... we offer multiple training and individual player enrichment programs that are not offered by any other club in our community.

Our Team Fee Structure:

In keeping with our family-focused, practical approach to travel soccer, our fees are built with an a-la-carte framework.  Using this approach we do not lump all the club offerings under one price.  Rather, we have our base team fee and then provide the other offerings as separate costs.  Other clubs may lump all the costs together for a significant fee.  We follow the rationale that not all of our players may be able to attend all the opportunities.  If we lumped the cost under one figure, families would be leaving money on the table if they were unable to participate.  Additionally, lumping the costs together reduces the transparency of what families are getting for their money with each opportunity.  Our approach keeps money in the pockets of our families.

Differences between team fees:
Our team fees are age group and league specific.  As teams get older, the team fees tend to increase.  This is largely due to the costs imposed on the club by the state and league organizations and the need for increased coaching credentials and coach investment.

MSPSP team fees are more than GVSA fees.  There are several additional overhead costs that the club faces with the MSPSP teams and that the teams benefit from (e.g., higher league fees, increased costs for team coaches, additional training space fees, etc.).

Simply put, the increased level of competition dictates the commitment of more time, energy, and financial support from the club and some of that must be reflected in our team fees.  However, we do not deviate from our fundamental belief that finances should not limit a child's participation.  As such, our financial aid program is extended fully across all of our players, regardless of the league in which their team plays.

Financial Support:  We recognize the cost of playing travel soccer can be a serious consideration and as such offer strong, private financial aid program to ensure that all athletes that wish to play USA have the opportunity.  We generally maintain our club fees for a two-year period.  This period alternates with the years where we must have a club-wide purchase of uniforms (which we also maintain for a two year period).  We do this so that our families continue to realize the value of USA Soccer without shouldering significant, fluctuating financial costs.

USA feels strongly that finances must not limit opportunities to be part of our family of teams.  As such, we have a strong financial support program that includes payment plans and financial aid.  Pursuing a payment plan is our first line of aid.  We hope that simply spreading the cost out over a period of time will help our families manage the team fees while fully supporting the club operations.  Beyond that, we will pursue focused financial aid where the cost of team fees may be reduced.  Processing of financial support occurs after team commitment and full player registration.  Details of financial support will be shared during the player registration process.  Our process is simple, non-invasive, and private.

Refunds: Upon commitment to a team, there will be no refunds.  Any refunds are at the discretion of the USA Board of Directors. Refunds will only be considered for individuals eliminated from team participation due to injury/illness or the unplanned dissolution of a team (refunds will only be given to those shown to have no active part in the dissolution). Any refund amounts are defined by the Board based on the individual circumstances (e.g., number of games played, impact to remainder of team, reason for refund, etc.).
Uniform Kit Uniforms are being maintained for two years.  This year uniforms must be purchased by all players. $145
