There are no hidden costs. New families to Millennium Futbol Club teams should attend the "Parent Meeting" after tryouts or contact a team manager or [email protected] to clarify any questions related to cost. The information below gives an idea of what to expect, but nothing replaces the information at the Parent Meeting. Club soccer at this level is more expensive than "recreational" programs. That is unavoidable, but we do our best to keep it as reasonable as possible while still providing the player development experience sought by families when they come to Millennium. Below are the typical costs:
Club Fees - players pay club fees of $300. This covers the expenses of operating a club. Our expenses include providing fields, training facilities, postage, field equipment, maintenance, insurance, marketing, technology/phone/internet, accounting services, and much much more.
Tournament Fees - This varies every season and is based on the tournaments costs. The fees or $220 are used to cover the cost of players playing up to 4 tournaments for the Fall season. The Spring season also has a fee of $220 which is due 9/1/19.
Uniform Kit - The player is required to purchase a complete uniform kit that includes home and away jersey, shorts, socks, and training shirts. The kit is estimated at $150.
Travel - Each player is responsible for their travel costs to tournaments and games. Our most competitive teams travel extensively and more so at the older ages than the younger. Some tournaments may require overnight stays. Travel costs will vary from team to team. At older ages, it can be common that only the player travels or carpools with others.
Fundraising - Millennium carries out various fundraising efforts throughout the year to offset club costs and provide monies for scholarships. Individual teams can offset their team dues by carrying out team fundraising as well. This is encouraged, especially for teams that travel extensively.
