WHERE DO MY CLUB FEES GO?

AFC Union prides itself on providing a high-quality program, while also maintaining a high level of value. Although we work hard to keep our rate structure down, we think it’s important our members see what costs your fees cover.

Below is a simple breakdown of what our average fee is expected to be for our U9-U19 player base in 2020-2019. We also show the average 2020-21 cost per player.

As you can see, the player fees we charge fall short of covering all the expense. It is only through the net proceeds of our tournaments that we host at SCORe  that we actually cover all our costs and provide some cushion for the future, assuming our tournaments are not canceled by inclement weather.

Because our tournaments are an integral role of our organization and keeping our fees down, each AFC Union player has a service hour requirement as part of their commitment to the organization to help with the success of our tournaments.
