FAQ’s for New 10 Month Season and Payment Schedule

 

Why are we moving to a 10-month season?

With so many kids wanting to play through the winter and keep their skills up, we are moving to a schedule to allow that.  With our successful indoor winter program this past year, we now can allow teams and individuals to continue their soccer training throughout the full season.

 

What about high school age kids?

The 10 month schedule is predominantly for the elementary and middle school age kids who play in both the fall and the spring.  However, the high school girls will be included in the winter program as they prepare for the upcoming season.  Should the high school age boys have post-season events they will be attending, indoor winter sessions will be scheduled as needed.

 

My child plays basketball in the winter.  Do they have to also attend TUSC indoor sessions?

We encourage kids to play other sports as well, but they can also attend the indoor sessions based on their schedule.  If a secondary sport will conflict with a team session, they would be welcome to attend a different session on another day that suits their schedule.  None of these sessions are mandatory.

 

Do I have to pay extra for the indoor sessions like I did last year?

It depends on your age group.  See below:

  • U9 – U10 Academy:  Indoor winter sessions are optional at an additional cost
  • U11 – U14 Competitive:  As part of the 10-month season and our new monthly billing cycles, all indoor sessions are included in your club fees.
  • U15+ Boys Competitive:  Indoor winter sessions are optional at an additional cost
  • U15+ Girls Competitive:  As part of the 5-month season and our new monthly billing cycles, all indoor sessions are included in your club fees.

 

How does this new 10-month payment schedule work?

In the past, players would pay a fee upon registration when they accept the spot on their team.  Then each player would be responsible for 3 payments towards “Club Fees”, which helped pay for their coaches fees as well as things such as specialized training sessions and coaching education.  To align with best practices and how many US Youth Soccer clubs are operating, we are migrating to a 10-month payment schedule to align with our 10-month season.  So instead of larger chunks of various payments being collected by your team treasurer, you will be billed on a monthly basis directly from the club, based on the age group of your child.

 

What are Team Fees then?  Are they billed monthly?

Team Fees are more specific to your actual team, and therefore, will vary across the board.  For example, one team may be playing in a Regional League and traveling out of state often, so their Team Fees would be much higher than another team who mostly plays in the Nashville area. These fees will be set at the beginning of the season by your manager and treasurer, much like how they are now, and will be communicated to you for payment.

 

How will the club bill me monthly?

Upon registration, you will provide a credit card that will be used to bill monthly.

 

Will my team fees use the same credit card?

No.  Your team fees go directly to your team treasurer, as they will use those fees the same way they do now to cover costs of referees, tournament registration, coach travel expenses, etc…

 

Will there be transaction fees each month?

No, the Club will cover those transaction fees.

 

Will I have the option to pay full amount up front?

Yes, that will be an option.

 

What’s the best way to pay my team fees?

Many teams are set up to use Venmo, which is the easiest way.  This eliminates the need of finding your treasurer at practice or games.  You can send the payment electronically at your convenience.  If you have questions on Venmo, please see your Team Manager.  As always, you can pay with a check or cash as well.

 

Did I pay Club Fees before?  Is this new?

You have always paid club fees.  However, they were built into your team budget and collected as part of your total team fees.  You would pay everything to your Team Treasurer, and then they would coordinate with the Club Treasurer to transfer that portion to the club.  This new process removes that extra step.  Club fees will be paid directly to the club on a monthly basis; Team fees will be paid directly to your team on a cadence decided by your treasurer (typically 3 payments).

 

Are high school age kids on a 10-month payment schedule too?

Since the high school age group’s club season is only 5 months, the payments will be divided into 4 monthly payments for the boys and 5 monthly payments for the girls, instead of 10.  But they will still be on a monthly billing schedule like the other age groups.  The HS teams will be on the current Flex plan for anything after November for the Boys and anything the Girls do before January.
