ANNUAL CLUB REGISTRATION FEES:

8u - 10u: $996 (includes a $100 Reimbursable Volunteer Fee) - equates to $22.64/week

11u & 12u: $1,212 (includes a $100 Reimbursable Volunteer Fee) - equates to $27.55/week

13u & Up: $1,400 (includes a $100 Reimbursable Volunteer Fee) - equates to $31.82/week.

VOLUNTEER FEE (already included in Registration Fee - reimbursed after 10 volunteer hours):

Volunteerism is an essential and wonderful element to the success of the Chargers Soccer Club. Although we would love to have all families involved with all the great club activities throughout the season, we appreciate that not everyone has the ability or the time to volunteer. As part of the Registration Fee, there is a $100 volunteer fee. For those that do not wish to volunteer, nothing further will be required by the club.

For those that would like to volunteer to receive their $100 Volunteer Fee reimbursement, just volunteer 10 hours in a club-organized role and document each shift with a Charger staff member signature on a 2017-18 Volunteer Log Form.  When you get to 10 hours total, submit it and let us know if you would like that applied to your club dues balance, team fees balance or a mailed check.

CITY OF CLEARWATER REC CARD PURCHASE:

Please note that the City of Clearwater requires a valid City of Clearwater Recreation Card (good through 12/31/17) to be purchased/renewed at the applicable resident or non-resident fee in order to practice and play on City fields.  All players must supply a copy of their purchase/renewal receipt to the club by 8/25/17.  Failure to do so will result in a $180 City Rec Card invoice added to your Scheduled Payments and charged to you no later than 9/15/17 through your child’s Got Soccer account.  The invoiced amount will be used to cover what the City will charge the Club for your child’s lack of a current City Rec Card.  Please note that if the club pays the fee to the City on your behalf, your child WILL be able to use the fields for soccer; however, the City WILL NOT issue you a Rec Card to use for other City purposes. You can only get that if you purchase it directly from the City of Clearwater.

For more information, please go to the City Of Clearwater Parks & Rec site.

TEAM FEES:

Depending upon the age and playing level of a team, each team also has separate TEAM EXPENSES based on the activity choices made for and by that team (which are items not covered by Club Registration Fees). Those items may be: Tournament Registration Fees, coach travel expenses for away tournaments, State Cup/Region Cup fees, referee fees for non-league games, special events your team may want to participate in, etc. Your Coach or Team Manager will provide information to you about any team expenses for your child’s team and will collect those fees separately.

 


PAYMENT OPTIONS & DUE DATES:

After tryouts, if your child is offered a roster spot, you will be provided a registration link & directions to complete the official online registration through Got Soccer.  That online system will give you the ability to register your child and set up your payment option & method.  Acceptable forms of payment are credit cards, debit cards and echecks online.   Families have 2 Options to pay their Club Registration Fees:

Option 1 - PAY IN FULL - you can pay at the time of online registration the full amount listed in the Club Registration Fees section above (including the non-refundable commitment fee of $250). This is the least expensive option as it does not include the convenience fee that the Option 2 payment plan includes. Pay in full and save money!!

OR

Option 2:  PAYMENT PLAN - you can pay in installments where the $250 non-refundable deposit is the first of those payments and the balance is paid over the next five months starting in August on the 15th of each month. We provide for the time gap between your deposit and your first payment in August to allow time to purchase your uniform kit and pay any initial team fees. We also offer this payment option to help families fit it into their monthly budgets. Because the Chargers SC staff expends additional time tracking & collecting incremental payments, the payment plan option includes a convenience fee added to the overall fees. Note: There is no convenience fee added if club dues are paid in one payment at the time of registration - 1 above.
