Henlopen Soccer Club relies on income from player fees to cover the expenses incurred by each select team as well as the operational and administrative cost of running the club. Player fees will vary by team according to age group, level of play and tournaments attended. The amount of player fees required for a team will be presented for each new season at tryouts.
Player fee consists of the annual club fee plus the amount that has been determined to be the per player cost of each tournament planned for the team during the annual season.
Please note that player fees do not include costs associated with lodging and travel expenses for the player and/or family members. These costs are solely the responsibility of the family.
Payment schedule - to accept a roster spot on a select team, within 5 days of being offered a spot on a team a player must register through the select registration portal and submit either payment in full of the annual player fee or a deposit of $100 that will be applied towards the annual player fee. If the annual fee is not paid in full at the time of registration, the fee minus the deposit will be collected automatically via monthly credit card or ACH payments managed through the registration portal.
Families with more than 1 select player in Henlopen Soccer Club are eligible to receive a discount. It is the family's responsibility to request the discount from Club Administration. A discount of $50 will be applied to the player fees of the sibling provided that both players are registered at the same time. This discount does not apply to travel costs or any other costs associated with the player's participation on a Henlopen Soccer Club select team.
Nonpayment of fees can lead to playing restrictions. It is the responsibility of the family to maintain valid payment information to ensure that all payments are successfully processed as scheduled. In the event that payments are not made by the payment due date, the family will receive an email from Club Administration reminding the family that fees are due. If a player account is 30 days past due, the Coach will be notified and the player will be suspended from training and playing in games, tournaments, showcases until the family's payments are current.
Player accounts must be paid in full prior to being placed on a Henlopen Soccer Club roster for the following season.
Financial Aid Scholarships - Henlopen Soccer Club does offer need-based financial aid for player fees. In order to be eligible to receive financial aid, the application must be filled out in its entirety. Incomplete applications cannot be accepted. Please speak to your Coach or Team Manager to obtain an application.
Fees for players added in during a season will be determined by the Club based on the team's remaining playing season and associated costs.
Refunds - The annual season for a select team runs from August 1 to July 31 of the following year. If a player is injured or the player and family move to another state and this occurs prior to January 1 during the season, the player will be refunded or will no longer be responsible for half of the annual club fee along with the tournament fees associated with the Spring tournaments. If the player is injured or the player and family move to another state and this occurs after January 1 of the current season, the player will be refunded or will no longer be responsible for only the tournament fees associated with the Spring tournaments after the player can no longer play with the team.
