Program Fees

New This Season

Two-payment Installment – Blizzard will be implementing a two-payment fee structure to assist the burden on many families to pay all fees at once.  Registration fees will be due in full upon registration fees with technical fees debited on Friday, June 8th, 2018 (technical fee costs vary depending on what tier players make – details below).

Note Regarding Fee Increases – Blizzard is very sensitive to keeping our programs affordable and accessible to families all while providing a superior product for your child’s soccer experience.  Due to an increase in CMSA fees and Club expenses, we have implemented a small fee increase for the outdoor season.  We do not want any child to not reach for their soccer dreams due to financial constraints and encourage you to contact us regarding options for financial assistance.

Part C – Volunteer Fee            $100.00

In order to run efficiently, Blizzard requires the help of volunteers. For those who do not have the time to commit to this, we offer a $100 Volunteer Fee at time of registration.

Part D – Facility Fee                 $20.00

Blizzard’s long-term goal is to develop our own Club facility.   The Club’s Board of Directors includes a Facilities Committee which continues to seek out potential opportunities.  Funds are set aside from the Facility Fee to help the Club reach this goal.

Other Expenses:  Parents should be aware that once they have registered for soccer and have been placed on a team at their child’s appropriate level, there may be further costs during the season.  For example, some teams may be registered to participate in a tournament or teams may participate in strength and conditioning sessions all at extra expense.  In addition, some teams in our U11 to U13 age group participate in a Spring Outdoor Prep boot camps sessions in Penticton.  Most teams participate in several fundraising initiatives to offset the costs where possible.
