PRICING: The cost of registration will be changing this season as the league makes some adjustments to offset raising costs. The league also feels that the new pricing structure will better reflect the costs associated within each age division. For example our U5 division currently has no refs at the games but our U15 division has up to 3 refs per game. Here are the registration cost for this season.
U5, U6, and U7 age divisions will actually see a $6.50 decrease to $72.50 plus a SportsEngine processing fee.
U8 and U10 age divisions will see a $2.50 increase to $82.50 plus a SportsEngine processing fee.
U12 and U15 age divisions will see a $8.50 increase to $87.50 plus a SportsEngine processing fee.
This registration cost goes to help cover uniforms, insurance, field prep, equipment, ref pay, and many other related expenses.
