La Roca FC prides itself on sharing all fee information, so player fees for 2020-2021 are detailed for each region using the links below.
Please note that the total cost displayed does not include team fees, which will vary depending on the cost of tournaments, coach travel, indoor training arrangements during the winter (for teams in Salt Lake, South, Spanish Fork), winter leagues, etc. You will also notice that the cost of a uniform is separate. La Roca teams purchase new uniforms every other year, and 2020-21 is not a uniform cycle year. New players, however, will need to purchase a uniform.
Player fees can either be paid in full or through a payment plan of 2-10 payments. The registration deadline is June 30, 2020. Affinity charges processing fees for credit card payments (3.1%) or e-check payments ($5 per transaction), which will be applied to the payment.
It is important that parents understand that when a player is placed on a La Roca team, that player is making a ONE YEAR COMMITMENT to that team, which includes paying fees for the entire year. All parents must sign a La Roca financial agreement at time of registration stating that they understand the financial obligation they are making to La Roca FC and that they will make all required payments. A player who is delinquent on fees will be removed from the team roster and will not be allowed to play until they are current on their payments.
For the 2020-2021 season, La Roca has added a more detailed refund policy in the event of future natural disasters, including COVID-19. The new refund policy states:
- If in-person trainings stop due to a natural disaster or restrictions imposed by the government, the Club will refund to you 25% of the training fees that you have paid for every month that in-person trainings are canceled.
- If league play is suspended for any reason, a portion of the field and referee fees that you have paid and that have been refunded to the Club will be refunded to you in proportion to the amount of that season that has been suspended.
Explanation of Fees:
La Roca Club Fee covers the compensation for our Directors of Coaching and goalkeeper trainers, coaching education, insurance, Worker’s Compensation, payroll processing fees, bank fees, credit card service fees, senior banquet, college night, tryouts, marketing, and other related expenses. The Club fee also covers compensation for an administrator/registrar in each area, office supplies, room rentals, etc., as well as equipment (goals, balls and ball bag for every coach, and nets and flags for new teams, start-up equipment for the La Roca Juniors program, etc.)
UYSA Registration and League Fees are paid to Utah Youth Soccer Association and include the cost of player insurance, as well as region and league administration. In 2020-21, the Legacy Field Fund Fee was suspended to compensate clubs for the cancellation of the 2020 Spring Season.
Indoor Training Facility fee is charged to every La Roca North player to cover up to 2 training sessions per week at La Roca Park, the indoor facility in South Weber. The indoor training facility fee increases with age because the older teams are allotted more field space at La Roca Park.
Field Fee covers the cost of renting game fields.
Ref Fee covers the cost of paying game referees. Please note that in the 2020-21 fees, the Referee Fees have been reduced by 50% because of the cancelled Spring 2020 season. So, 2020-21 players will only pay one season of referee fees.
Training Fee is compensation for our coaches and the related payroll taxes. The training fee increases with age and level of play because the coaches spend more time training older teams and/or premier teams.
