FAQs About Club Fees
Club Fees are determined by the competition format observed by the team to which a player is rostered. For the 2017-2018 season:
- $1500 for players in teams playing 7v7 (players born in 2008 and 2009 as well as players born in 2010 but "playing up")
- $2000 for players in teams playing 9v9 (players born in 2006 and 2007 as well as players born in 2008 but "playing up")
- $2000 for players in teams playing 11v11 (players born in 2004 and 2005 as well as players born in 2006 but "playing up")
- $1500 for players in teams playing 11v11 in an abbreviated season due to the mandatory break during High School Soccer Season (players born in 2003 or before as well as players born in 2004 but "playing up")
Only in special cases such as unexpected illness and relocation.
Players in high school have a shorter club season because high school competition rules prohibit participation in club soccer during the high school soccer season
- Administrative and operational expenses for the entire soccer calendar year
- Training (practices) and coaching (matches) for all competitions until tryouts for next year's season
- Training and coaching for State Cup matches until such competition concludes
- Individual expenses associated with team registration for participation in State Cup, and the first 2 tournaments.
- After the first 2 tournaments that the club covers, team members must carry the cost of any additional tournaments the team participates in. For tournaments in Northern CA, this is typically around $45 per team member for the cost of registering for the tournament. For tournaments outside of Northern CA team members carry the additional cost of accommodations and travel for the coach, which vary depending on distance travelled and available accommodations.

Yes. We are strongly committed to providing access to our teams and programs, regardless of ability to pay. Financial assistance is available to cover Club Fees for families with demonstrated need via an application (please note: aid is not available to cover individual or team expenses). It must be submitted, with the required accompanying documentation, to the Club’s Scholarship Committee by June 1. Please note that we budget for a scholarship fund each year, and therefore, the amount of aid we are able to provide to each family depends on the number of families that apply for aid. It also depends on when families apply for aid: applying after the June 1 deadline might result in our inability to provide aid because the scholarship fund may be depleted after such date.
Please visit Documents to get the financial aid application and read instructions on how to submit it for review
Uniforms are an additional expense team members should expect to pay in addition to Club fees. Also, after the first 2 tournaments that the club covers, team members must carry the cost of any additional tournaments the team participates in. For tournaments in Northern CA, this is typically around $45 per team member for the cost of registering for the tournament. For tournaments outside of Northern CA team members carry the additional cost of accommodations and travel for the coach, which vary depending on distance travelled and available accommodations.
Financial aid is provided to cover Club Fees only. Club Fees include participation in two tournaments each year (September and October), but participation in additional tournaments is not covered by financial aid. If assistance is needed for additional tournaments, this should be discussed at the team level. Aid also does not cover uniforms.
Our uniforms are made by Puma and consist of two jerseys (Purple for home games and White for away games), one pair of shorts (Purple) and two pairs of socks (Purple)
Uniforms are purchased from the All Season Soccer store in San Rafael
