Blackhawks Fee Structure

 

Scottsdale Soccer’s Blackhawks Competitive Program Fee Structure 2017 - 2018

Scottsdale Soccer strives to make soccer affordable for all participants.  Governed by an all volunteer Board of Directors, budgeting is done to maximize the affordability to our membership.  There are four (4) Fee Structure components associated with the Blackhawks Competitive Program:  Registration, Club Team Training Fees, Team Fees and Uniforms.  

Registration

The Scottsdale Soccer Blackhawks Competitive Program charges a one-time per seasonal year, non-refundable, Registration Fee of $250.00 at the beginning of each season.  Payment of the Registration Fee allows a player to register with the Club and accept placement on a Blackhawks Competitive Program Team when teams are announced after the tryout process.  Players must be registered with the Club and have paid Registration Fees to participate in Club activities.

Club Team Training Fees

Club Team Training Fees help offset the cost of professional coaching, field usage, player registration and insurance, league fees, league referee fees, Club programs and Club administrative costs.  The Team Manager collects the Club Team Training Fees from each family and sets up a Team Bank Account to pay those fees to the Club.

Club Team Training Fees will be announced shortly after tryouts.  The Club invoices each team for Club Team Training Fees with payments due to the Club in early September and early November.

Club Team Training Fees are set and approved each year at the Club’s Annual General Meeting (AGM).  Club Team Training Fees are established as a per player fee, regardless of roster size.  Club Team Training Fees do not include the Team Fee component and are in addition to Team Fees, Registration Fees and Uniform costs. 

Scottsdale Soccer reserves the right to adjust the Club Team Training Fees at any time. 

For individual player planning purposes for the 2017 – 2018 season, Club Team Training Fees per player are:

Team Fees

Team Fees (tournament registrations, Coach's travel, administrative, league, equipment and any other team related / team specific expenses) will be announced by the individual teams in August.  Each team is their own financial entity within Scottsdale Soccer and their Team Manager, with guidance from their Coach, sets the Team Budget for the season.  The Team Budget will combine the Club Team Training Fee and Team Fee components to arrive at the per player amount due. The Team Manager establishes a Team Bank Account, collects each player’s fees and pays all team expenses from the Team Bank Account. Team Fees can vary between Blackhawks teams and are in addition to Registration Fees, Club Team Training Fees and Uniform costs.

Uniforms

The uniform and professional appearance of the Scottsdale Soccer Blackhawks Coaching Staff and our Players represent the Club and what we stand for.  Uniform ordering is completed and paid for individually, online through our website store, by each Player’s family with our contracted uniform vendor Soccerloco.  Assistance in this process will be coordinated by the Coach and Team Manager.  Uniform specifications, requirements, ordering information and questions can be directed to Scottsdale Soccer’s Vice President of Uniforms and Equipment.  Uniform sizing samples are available at Soccerloco’s Phoenix retail location:  21043 North Cave Creek Road  Phoenix, Arizona 85024 - Google Map Link - (602) 795-4847.   The 2017 - 2018 season is the second year of a two (2) year uniform cycle for the Club and these uniforms will be discontinued after this year.  The Blackhawks Competitive Program will wear uniforms manufactured by Nike, a Club partner.  Uniform costs are in addition to Registration Fees, Club Team Training Fees and Team Fees.

The mandatory equipment required for each player includes:

Academy Divisions (U12 and younger) – Black Socks, Black Shorts, Red Training Shirt, Black Game Jersey, White Game Jersey, Warm-Up Jacket and Backpack.  

Elite Division (U13 and older) – White Socks, Black Socks, White Shorts, Black Shorts, Red Training Shirt, Black Game Jersey, White Game Jersey, Warm-Up Jacket and Backpack.

For two (2) of each item (Socks / Shorts / Training Shirt), one (1) of each Game Jersey, one (1) Warm-Up Jacket and one (1) Backpack, we expect the following costs:

Academy Divisions (U12 and younger)  $318.00 + Tax & Shipping                 Elite Division (U13 and older)  $400.00 + Tax & Shipping

It is understood that individual costs may be higher or lower based on personal ordering preferences (quantities, sizes, etc . . .).
