Late registration will be accepted, but will include a $25 late fee and will not guarantee the player a spot on the team for the coming season.

Fees range are $25 for tots (born in 2008), $60 for “mini” level players (U6 through U10) and $70 for competitive divisional players (U12 through U18).

A pair of soccer socks and team and individual photo are included in the fee.

Fees are $65 for divisional players and $55 for mini.

A tot division will be held only if enough players and coaches express an interest.
