About Youth Soccer

  • 2023 New Youth Soccer League Fees

      To better align ourselves with our mission for equity and inclusivity while adjusting our pricing to match our rising costs, we are moving to a tiered pricing model.

      • Tier 1 = Household income is $80,000 or less
      • Tier 2 = Household income is between $80,001 and $170,000
      • Tier 3 = Household income is greater than $170,001
      • Tier 1 Pricing = $110/season (= $11/game + free practices)
      • Tier 2 Pricing = $135/season (= $13.50/game + free practices)
      • Tier 3 Pricing = $160/season (= $16/game + free practices)

      We encourage you to select the tier that makes the most sense for your family.

It can be a fun, enriching, and rewarding experience for all! To learn more and sign up, email [email protected].
