Please email a copy of your City Recreation Card receipt to Susan Moorhead at Support@ChargersSoccer.com. Registered players will be waitlisted until we receive a copy of your receipt. Upon receipt, then they will be rostered to a team.
Clearwater Residents - $7.00 plus tax

If you own a business that falls within the City Limits to be considered a Clearwater resident by Parks and Recreation, you can use that address to procure the Clearwater resident recreation card rate. Click here for more information on the City’s website.
The purchase of a City of Clearwater Recreation Card not only allows your child to play soccer, but you are also able to access City of Clearwater sponsored parks and programs at a discounted rate!
Where can I go to purchase/renew my child's City Rec Card?
Most information can be found on the City of Clearwater website - CLICK HERE to access their site - see the "Recreation Cards" link listed in their left margin. To purchase/renew your City of Clearwater Rec card, you can go to either of the following locations:

Sponsorships are a great opportunity to build community support for youth soccer. Therefore, we are requiring each team to have a sponsorship. Sponsorships can be from businesses, individuals, and/or groups of people. Sponsorship amounts vary by age group due to number of players on a team as well as time spent on the field.
- Multiple Sponsors per team are allowed.
- Recreation Program sponsorship opportunities available.
All sponsors will receive an advertising spot on the recreation website as well as at the complex and an appreciation plaque at the conclusion of the year.
*An added benefit of bringing in a sponsorship is the ability to have your child as well as choose 2 other players on the roster. If your child wants to be on a team with his/her friends, this is the best way to ensure 2 of your child’s friends are on his/her team.*
In-House (requested) - $125
Travel (required) - $250
Please complete the Team Sponsorship Form or contact Susan Moorhead at Support@ChargersSoccer.com if you have any questions.
