WHAT IS THE PROCESS FOR MAKING TEAMS?
Coaches will be making phone calls to players starting as early as Friday, June 26th to confirm commitment to join team. In addition, you will receive an email from us within a few days inviting your player to accept and join the team. When you accept you will be taken to our Demosphere registration system where you will agree to all the waivers and make a $200 non-refundable deposit. More details about this deposit can be found below.
WHEN DO I NEED TO COMMIT BY?
We would like all players to commit and complete the Demosphere agreement by July 3rd. If you commit by July 3rd we will provide a $50 discount code that you can apply to our next set of camps that are taking place July 6th - 24th. The discount code will be included in your registration confirmation email.
I DEFERRED MY $400 SPRING REFUND TO FALL. CAN YOU TAKE THE $200 FROM THERE?
Unfortunately not. Our registration system (Demosphere) doesn't have an easy way to automate this process. Instead, the $400 will be deducted across the 5 payments assuming you select the "Payment Plan" option. If you select the "Pay in Full" option then the $400 will automatically be discounted. An email with the special coupon code will be sent to those who deferred the payment.
WHAT IS THE COST?
We did everything possible to keep our costs the same for the 2020/21 season. The fees below are for the entire year which includes both Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 seasons. This includes the following fees:
- Non-refundable Enrollment Deposit Fee: $200*

*** State Cup Fee covers the cost of State Cup Team registration, Paid Trainer Fees, home game field and ref fees. Applicable to Black-level teams and select Red-level teams based on DOC discretion. These fees are fully refundable if State Cup does not take place.
WHAT ARE THE PAYMENT OPTIONS?
Our program has two payment options to chose from: Pay in Full or Payment Plan. The Pay in Full plan allows you to pay the $200 non-refundable enrollment fee and the 2020/21 fees when the player accepts the invitation to join the team. The Payment Plan consists of a $200 non-refundable enrollment deposit fee paid when the player accepts the invitation to join the team and then 4 equal payments over the 2020/21 season. The Payment Plan will charge your credit card automatically on 8/1, 10/1, and 12/1 of 2020 and 2/1 of 2021. You only have to enter your information including credit card during the initial registration.
DO WE NEED NEW UNIFORMS?
Yes, it has been 2 years since we last purchased new uniforms and will be asking everyone to purchase new kits that will be good for the next 2 years. Estimated cost of total kit is between $140 and $160, which includes 2 jersey tops (red and black), 2 shorts (red and black) and 2 pairs of socks (red and black). More details to come later.
ARE YOU STILL OFFERING SCHOLARSHIPS?
WHY ARE YOU ASKING FOR A $200 DEPOSIT NOW?
These funds will help keep the club operating through the end of summer as well as help us get ready for the upcoming Fall season. This fee covers trainer fees, field rental fees, insurance and many other items.
WHAT HAPPENS TO MY $200 DEPOSIT IF THERE IS NOT A SEASON?
If we do not have a Fall Season due to COVID, the $200 deposit fee will go towards whatever type of program we are allowed to offer by the County in the Fall. If we are in a complete lockdown (Shelter in Place) we will be unable to refund or credit the $200 as the money would have already been spent for operations noted above. You can read our full refund policy here.
WILL YOU OFFER SOMETHING IF SEASON IS CANCELLED DUE TO COVID?
Yes, assuming the City and County keep the current resitrcitions in place and we don't have a season, we will be able to offer ongoing training sessions until otherwise told we cannot. We will provide more details around pricing and timing if we have to take this route, and as noted above, your $200 deposit fee would go towards this program.
WHEN WILL PRACTICES START?
The week of July 27th.
