The Club’s annual competition calendar consists of two seasons. The Fall Season that starts on August 1st and the Spring Season that starts on February 1st. However, the club employs a once-a-year registration that commences in mid to late summer. Players are required to commit for the entire year and accept the financial responsibility for the year. Partial registration is not feasible as it is important to form a stable and consistent team for the entire year.
The online registration process opens a few weeks before the Fall season starts and a message will be sent to all returning players via TeamSnap and or Demosphere inviting all current players to register. Players that are trying out with the club or transferring from other clubs will receive an invitation to register as well. Typically, that invitation is extended by one of our coaches during the open tryout period.
Club registration fees for the year are disclosed in the registration system and parents should closely review them prior to accepting the liability and payment plan. In addition, coaches and managers will be able to discuss club fees with new players at the time an invitation is extended.
The club registration fees cover coach compensation, club operations and development, curriculum development, technical directors, and special event management and cover the entire year (both fall and spring seasons).
Team fees, which typically include, field, referee, tournament, league, and other fees are collected by the team and they are not optional. These vary by age group. Consult with your team manager for details. Note: Tournament fees that require overnight accommodations for the coach, are the responsibility of the team.
Everybody must register, accept the financial commitment and pay via credit card so that the payment process can be streamlined and to avoid collection issues.
To allow families to better plan and manage these expenditures the club can only accept credit payments and offers a payment plan comprised of 4 payments. The first payment will be due at registration, the second payment around September 1, the third payment around October 1, and the final payment on February 1.
This is a fixed date payment plan and can not be customized as the club does not have the ability to manage multiple payment plans and options.
Please note that payments 2-4 will be automatically charged to the credit card on file based on the dates that were stipulated in the original agreement that was agreed to by the parent at the time of registration. Each parent will receive via email a system-generated receipt that outlines the payment schedule and payment amounts
Club registration is not optional or not at the discretion of the coach. Players that are NOT registered can NOT practice with the team or participate in games.
Returning players that choose not to register by the dealine will be charged a late fee of $100. New players, that have not been with the club previously, upon registration, can request that the late fee be credited or refunded as appropriate.
Players that join the club in January will have to register at that time and agree to the payment plan that covers the Spring season. The same rules apply regarding refunds and adjustments.
All Players must register via the online registration system, accept the waiver, and agree to the payment plan. Parents have the option to pay the entire amount due at registration time.

Club Soccer Year:

Verified new players joining the club during the first 3 months of the season will be charged the full fee and will be required to pay by credit card. The late fee will be waived via a refund/adjustment to the remaining payment amount.
New players joining the club after month 3 will be charged half the registration fee for the Fall (due at registration) and 100% of the fees for the Spring on a modified plan.
De Anza Force requires a 12-month commitment from each player that is accepting a position with the club. The 12 month soccer season is from August 1 to July 15 the following year.
De Anza Force incurs costs each time a player registers to play soccer. These costs increase over time so the club WILL NOT refund any of the club and team fees. Each parent is required to acknowledge and sign a responsibility commitment to pay at for the entire (in installments) time of registration.
Club and team fees become the responsibility of each team member and their family at the time they accept a position on a competitive team. Injury, family relocation, or call-up situations may occur, but don’t alter the responsibility of a family to meet their financial commitment to their original team. In order to protect the financial stability of each competitive/elite team club and team, fees are not subject to refunds.
- Players that choose to leave the club by August 15 will be released from further obligation but will forfeit the initial payment.
PLAYER season-ending injuries and relocations August and later - pro-rated refunds will only be granted in the event of a player moving out of the area, or due to a major injury occurring during league games/practices (doctor verification will be required). NO EXCEPTIONS. Refunds for major injuries/conditions and out of area moves will be capped at a maximum refund of 50% of the remaining pro-rated amount.
