What does it cost to play for OPS FC?
OPS FC is committed to providing a superior experience for your player and also understands that it is important to keep costs affordable. Premier soccer by its nature is more expensive than recreational play as it typically includes professional coaching, travel, and higher level league and registration fees. The final cost depends on the division you play in, the number of players on your team, and whether or not you have a paid OPS FC coach.
The costs and fees are described in detail below:
Try Out Registration Cost (2021-22 Season) $15
Season Registration Cost (2021-22 Season)
Payment Option #1: $500 if paid in full
Payment Option #2: $250 down and three monthly payments of $94. Total cost of registration is $532.
Payment Option #3: $200 down and six monthly payments of $60. Total cost of registration is $560.
Multi-player family discount: If you have multiple players to register the cost would be $450 per player.
***All payments are to be completed by December at the latest.
League fees (2021-22 Season): Per team fees are based on division ($550 – Premier, $350 – Classic, $200 – Copa per season). Division placed in is based on performance.
Per player fees are then based on team division and # of players. High School only plays one season - younger ages play two.
For example a 2009 player playing on a team with 14 players in the Classic division would have a per season league fee of $350/14 = $25. They would play two seasons - so their total per player league fee for the year would be $50.
Coaching fees (Subject to licensing and experience): Coaches fees are determined by a combination of license and experience. Any coach has the ability to scholarship a player based on financial need.
Teams where players try-out and are placed with paid coaches would be participating in the Premier and Classic levels.
If you bring a team in and provide your own coach you will still pay registration, league and any tournament fees but no coaches fees apply.
Coach’s travel expenses: Travel expenses are paid a flat $100 per trip unless overnight accommodations are needed then associated hotel and $35 a day meal allowance will apply. These expenses are divided by all rostered players.
