There is a lot of MISINFORMATION out there about club soccer, so please take us as the source about our fees and not what others tell you. Costs vary by age but are all inclusive. The level of coaching, facility year round usage, club staff, development outlets, and overall experience are second to none at Pipeline. There are no hidden fees (besides credit card fees taken by demosphere.com/Families are able to pay by check to avoid these fees) and pipeline does not rely on managers or coaches to handle finances. The tuition covers all club fees, tournaments, professional coaching, facility rental, referee costs, coaching education, goalkeeper training, coaches travel, carding, insurance, etc etc. We also have need-based scholarship program HERE. For the club teams your son or daughter is trying out for, the total costs this year (2020-2021) are as follows/ and spread out throughout the season:
$1850 2013/2014 (U7/U8)
$2250 2011/2012 (U9/U10)
$2450 2009/2010 (U11/U12)
$2650 2008-2002 (U13 to U18-PRE ECNL/BLACK/RED)
$3200 (U13-U18) ECNL teams
**North Teams**- Discussed at team meetings with coaches/staff
These fees include everything but the uniform. Uniforms are bought every 2-3 years only. The difference in cost between age groups is due to cost differences among leagues, tournaments, referee fees, technology apps, and field use needs (11 v 11 teams use much more space than 7v7 teams). Each year, tuition may rise 2-3% due to tournaments, leagues, and facility costs.
Why such a large range from the lowest to the highest fees? While all of our teams are professionally coached by licensed coaches, the oldest and highest level teams are often playing in tournaments all over the country as they are in the final stages of being recruited by collegiate programs. That increases costs for those teams.
