*Volunteer Fee            $100.00

In order tor 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. If you complete your volunteer commitment, this $100 will be credited to your account.

**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.

**Technical Training Fee     $350-$500 (depending on tier)

Technical training is mandatory for all Tier 1-3 teams U11-U19 and Tier A-C teams U9-U10 and optional for all Tier 4/D teams.  Technical training sessions are with one of our licensed staff and are part of our club program. If a team is moved to a lower tier after preseason and the technical training program has started, training will go on as planned for the remainder of that season and that team will receive the amount of sessions initially planned for.  If a single player is moved to a lower tier, the fees will be adjusted to reflect the amount of sessions they will receive within that new tier and team.

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.  Most teams participate in several fundraising initiatives to offset the costs where possible.
