You will see some changes this season in the registration fee amount. Unfortunately, we have seen increases in our fees over the past two years, and while we have tried to keep our fees at the standard $50 registration fee, we are now forced to raise the cost of the season fees. 

We have implemented two brackets of increases: 

 – PreK and K have seen a $5 increase to their season fees bringing their fees to $55. 

 – U8+ have seen a $15 increase to their season fees bringing their fees to $65. 

In recent years/seasons our fees for referees and volunteer background checks has increased. We also have had to replace or repair many of our original goals – now a decade old – and our field maintenance costs have nearly doubled. Essentially, we are dealing with growing pains and fewer volunteers and our small non-profit cannot bear the burden of these increased costs. 

To offset these increases we are now offering family discounts for all divisions and payment plans for U8+. For every additional player registered you will receive a $5 discount. Payment plans are splitting fees into two payments. Your initial payment will be $35 due at the time of registration and your second payment, due February 22nd, will be $30. See screenshot below of both the payment plan option. You do not have to select the payment plan, you can still opt to pay all your season fees at once. 

11/2 Kindergarten is ON

The forecasted weather will be past us by the Kindergarten start time of 6p, with the sun even making an appearance, so we will play as scheduled.

Please be sure to have all teams/players on the field as scheduled. Feel free to wear layers.

Have fun! Thanks for a great season. We have loved hosting you. Remember – Keep your fall jerseys for use in the spring. 🙂

Registration for the spring season will open in January. Keep an eye on our website and social pages for details.

Updated: Friday Kindergarten Postponed Until Saturday

Updated Information: 2:49 pm Saturday, 10/27

If the weather looks like it is going to be unbearable for play once you get the field, please shorten or skip your practice time and get right to the games. At this moment the forecast is showing that rain is expected to begin again at 3:30.

Unfortunately, we are running out of time to reschedule matches this season with the upcoming time change so matches need to be played if conditions allow it.

Please use your best judgement when on the field and communicate with the opposing team.

__________

Due to the forecasted weather for Friday, we have postponed all scheduled Kindergarten activities. The practices and matches will now be on Saturday, 10/27 at 3p.

Your schedules have been updated to reflect the change.
