Program Fees

Two-payment Installment – Blizzard has 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 May 6, 2019 (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 an 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.

*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. 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.

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.

Refund Policy

Blizzard has a strict refund policy. Once you register with our Club, you may withdraw your application for a full refund before a specific date, depending on the season. This will be subject to a $100 administrative fee which will be withheld from the refund. This date will normally be 48 hours before the CMSA Team Entry date. If, however, you have attended an evaluation session, no refund will be eligible unless it is for a season ending injury as noted by a doctor.
