Costs & Fees

Player fees are required to participate and will be paid to the Sub-Regional Chair or Team Coordinator. There may be a tryout fee and there may be an additional fee for those that are selected to a team. These fees vary from region to region and will cover the costs of tryouts, uniforms and other expenses.
Tryout Fees
  • Non-refundable and not to exceed $55.
  • These fees offset expenses for the tryout fields, officials and coaches.
Tournament Team Fees
  • Additional team expenses (after excess tryout fees are used) are determined and collected by the Sub-Regional selection chairs. These are used to offset the cost of the tournament fee, uniforms, tournament coaches’ travel and lodging expenses.
