Plain and simple: in order for the team to function well, we need money. Player dues, Social Member dues, and Donations all go towards supporting the club. Without those dues and donations we can't afford to rent a field to practice and play matches at, team uniforms, coaching fees, hosting visiting clubs, this website, etc.
It is so crucial that we do not allow players to participate in matches if they have not paid the minimum amount due. The Board has established a payment system over the corse of the season where minimum total amount required to play increases $25 every month so that by the end of the season the combined total will be $175. The Board understands that sometimes money is tight, if you are unable to comply with this payment system, please come and talk to us and we will see how we can work with you to help get you on the pitch.
