If you have multiple children in the club, create a family account to take advantage of the Club discount. All players must submit the CYSA and US Club forms, three 1x1 headshots, a birth certificate (original plus 2 copies) and proof of payment to the Team Admin or Club registrar before they will be issued a card for the new season.

There will be a $50 discount if all fees are paid up front as well as a $100 discount for each sibling after the first player. There will be 3 payment options to choose from.

These fees primarily finance the salaries of the coaching staff, registration of teams and players into CSL (including registration fees for 2009 California Cup), insurance, and playing field infrastructure. The Club Fees, simply put, are the Club's operating fees. These fees are paid directly through the LAFC Chelsea online registration system. Players will NOT receive player cards unless a $250 minimum payment is submitted online or in person with the completed paperwork.

Uniforms:

LAFC Chelsea will be working with Eurosport for all our uniform and Spirit Store needs. Each TA or team uniform coordinator will work directly with the Eurosport representative to handle all your team uniform needs. All teams will be securing a new version of Adidas uniforms as we are changing colors. Moving to Eurosport has brought down the cost in uniforms and gear and gives all LAFC Chelsea players discounts on shoes and other items sold through Eurosport.

LAFC Chelsea Contract Season:

LAFC Chelsea players/parents sign an annual contract for the period between May 1 and April 30 of each year. During this period of time, players are trained by our professional coaching staff for successful team play within several areas of competition during the year.

Additional Costs:

In addition to Club fees, each team maintains a separate account with Wells Fargo Bank for Team Fees, which finances new uniforms, referee fees, tournament fees, equipment and tournament per diem for the teamís Head Coach. The Team Fees are paid directly to your Team Administrator. If you want to pay these fees via credit card, please contact your Team Administrator for details.

2009-2010 Team Fees include the following (these are approximate as costs may vary):
  • $75 per player for Season & League Cup Referee Fees
  • $150 per player for 3-4 Tournaments, Tournament per diem & Equipment
  • $35 per player for a practice uniform
  • $100 per player for 10 team training sessions at CATZ. These CATZ fees are optional, but strongly recommended.
  • Uniforms (see below detail)
Note: Team fees can vary slightly for each team. Your Team Administrator will be providing you with a detailed list of your child's anticipated team fees. Payment of the Team Fees to the Team Administrator is immediately required, otherwise, uniforms will not be ordered and teams cannot be entered into tournaments. Team Fees are mandatory for every player; no financial hardship issues can or will be considered.

The minimum uniform package costs approximately $165 (youth sizes), $185 (adult sizes) and consists of:
  • 2 game jerseys

Additional items may be purchased (extra shorts, sweatshirts, hoodies) but only if the entire team decides to purchase items as a group.

Fundraising with LAFC Chelsea:

In addition, each team is responsible for finding sponsors and other support to contribute a team minimum of $1000 a year to help fund LAFC Chelsea's non-operating expenses such as scholarships, field development and team subsidies. Participation in the LAFC Chelsea Golf Classic or donations towards player or college scholarships would fulfill this requirement.

Community/Business/Individual Sponsorships, especially for individual Team activities, is encouraged and can help to defray Team Fees. Teams are asked to seek out contributions to assist in reducing their costs and/or finance Team travel and other activities. Any sponsors that a Team obtains will be duly recognized by the Club on our website and at our annual LAFC Chelsea Golf Classic.
