Season fees for this coming traveling season will be increasing to $640. The club's costs have increased over the last 3 years due to rising gym rental fees and club/team tournament fees, and so player fees are higher in order to offset those costs and keep the organization viable.
For those that have been a part of the program over the last couple of years, you are aware that tournaments have gone to a no gate fee model, instead choosing to charge organizations/teams more upfront with higher tournament fees. Overall, this has been a net positive for families, especially those with multiple members that had been paying $6-8 per person/per day for gate fees. However, this has increased tournament costs for the organization.
Season fees noted above do not include our tryout fee or uniform fees. There is a $25 tryout fee for all that register. If you need a new uniform this year, uniform costs remain the same at $90 (shorts + jersey).
