Player Registration Policy
Member players and their parents/legal guardians, upon accepting a place on a competitive team and paying the registration fees hereby acknowledge the player is committing to the club for an entire seasonal year. The seasonal year begins on August 1 and ends on July 31. For players in the U11 through U14 age groups there is a fall and a spring season. High School ages U15 through U18 there is only one season of club play. Girls play club soccer in the fall while boys play club soccer in the spring.
Corinthians Athletic Club Payment Policy:
The payment is based on a seasonal year as stated above. This will reflect the Club’s commitment to the player for the fall and spring seasons as well as the player’s commitment to the Club for both seasons. Once a player is registered and has submitted the enclosed Corinthians Soccer Membership Form, the parent/legal guardian is responsible to meet the payment requirements as outlined below for the appropriate age group.

A training fee will be charged to each team member payable to the club on or before September 15th for the fall season and on or before February 15th for the spring season. The training fee will be determined by the Club depending on coach’s experience, team placement and other factors. The training fee will be set for each team prior to registration and be part of the financial agreement between the Club and the player’s parent/guardian. Payment plans are available but will result in higher registration fees per season with payment agreement. Training fees will stay the same and are due at the same time.

Registration fees shall be used to cover CYS registration cost, CYS referee cost, field use cost for games, referee assignor cost, club administration and overhead cost, club growth project cost, insurance cost, and any other cost necessary for the daily operations of the club.
Member players must compete in club approved apparel. New uniform purchase cost is $167.00 and includes two jerseys, one pair of shorts, and two pair of socks. Used uniforms may be available through the club office at rates determined by the club.
The club may offer optional services and programs, including but not limited to camps, clinics and individual sessions, for a fee open to all individual members or teams, but no member player shall be required to participate in any offered services or programs.
Each team may require team specific fees to cover cost of tournament registrations, coach travel expenses, team equipment expenses and training/practice site cost (including use of indoor facilities). Each team shall within a reasonable provide its team members information on team specific cost. Each team manager shall be responsible for the collection and administration of these fees.
Once a player parent/guardian has completed and submitted all registration materials and paid the appropriate registration fee, no fees shall be refunded. A player suffering a catastrophic injury (an injury precluding completion of the remainder of the season) prior to the first game shall be given a partial refund at the option of the Club. In cases where extenuating circumstances exist any player parent/guardian may request a partial refund by submitting the request in writing to The Corinthians Board of Directors. All written requests will be reviewed and responded to in a timely manner.
Transfer and Release Policy:
No player shall be granted a release or transfer from the club until all fees for the seasonal YEAR (both fall and spring seasons) and all team specific fees are paid and current and no arrears exist. Any transfer or release will need to be approved by the Technical Director of the club. Any request for a club-to-club transfer or release shall be submitted in writing to the club. The cost for a release or transfer shall be $100.00.
From time to time players may be added to teams to keep their numbers ideal throughout the season. All revisions to the league roster must be submitted to the office for approval. Competitive coaches must receive approval from the Technical Director prior to revising their league roster. If a Gold team needs to revise their roster at any time during the season, they should first look at players on the Red team. The coach also has the option to add a player who is not currently registered with any club if the coach strongly believes that player to be better than those players available on the Red team. The coach of the player on the Red team who is being requested to transfer onto the Gold team will not in any way discourage or hinder the transfer.
Whenever a competitive team transfers a player off their roster, they may replace that player at the Club’s discretion by utilizing the resources they have at their disposal according to CAC and CYS policies. The coach must obtain the affected player’s and parent/legal guardian’s agreement for the transfer. All team fees to the old team must be current and paid to date in order to release the player from any future debt to the old team. In turn, the player will incur all new fees from the transfer date for the remaining seasonal year with the new team.
