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 October 5th, will be $30. See screenshot below of both the family discount and payment plan option. You do not have to select the payment plan, you can still opt to pay all your season fees at once.

Again with the snow…

Spring weather is unpredictable, but this spring may win an award for that.

The sun is expected to come out Friday afternoon . . . but not in time to melt the fields and have them dry enough to be playable. As a result, Kindergarten soccer is being tentatively postponed to this Saturday at 1:00 p.m.

By Saturday at 7am, a decision will made about whether the fields are playable for all Saturday games. If your team plays in Blacksburg, NRU will determine whether those games are postponed and will update their website at http://www.nrusa.org.

Game-day decisions are posted on the website, Facebook, Twitter, and via email.
