Fees and Uniform Deposit
Fees for all Under 12 to Under 16 Registration Fees: $425 per player. Under 18 Registration fees: $340 per player. In addition to the registration fee, a separate $50.00 cheque is required as a uniform deposit for each player registered. These cheques should be post-dated to April 30th, 2013 and will be held by the club until the return of the player's uniform at the end of the season. At that time the cheque will be returned. If the full uniform is not returned, this cheque will be used to recover the cost of unreturned items.
A separate $100.00 cheque is required as a volunteer deposit bond for each family registered. These cheques should be post-dated to April 30th, 2013 and will be held by the club until the end of the season. At that time the cheque will be returned if one of the adult family members has volunteered a minimum of 6 hours at the Harder Avalon Classic Tournament or is a member of the coaching staff, a manager, serving on the Board or any committee of the Board, or helps with evaluations, tryouts or other duties as required. If a member of the player's family does not volunteer, this cheque will be used to cover the costs required to hire additional resources for the Club. More information is available on the Volunteer FAQ and on the Volunteer form.
Your Registration Fees
Your soccer registration fees are very competitive with those paid for other sports and leisure activities. Even so, you may be interested in knowing how the amount is set. For the indoor season, the fee is based on the team assessments made by Saskatoon Youth Soccer and Saskatchewan Soccer Association. These fees cover the staff time at SYSI required to organize the league and the registrations, schedule and assign fields, assign referees, and pay the referees. This sum also includes provincial registration fees which cover insurance for each participant. Prior to the beginning of the season, the Aurora Soccer Club breaks this out into a player-based fee, and adds its anticipated costs including the costs associated with evaluations, the registration process, training coaches, providing uniforms and purchasing and providing equipment. Based on that review, your Board carefully considered the anticipated expenses, and additional costs which will be carried by the Club for the coming year, which include the costs associated with developing and implementing an online registration system. and arrived at a registration fee for the 2011/2012 indoor season of $425 per player.
The deadline for Kidsport applications is September 30th. If applying for Kidsport funding please contact the registrar (Anne Ballantye 373-4675) to ensure you have the current application and all pertinent information. Forms will be available at registration.
