What Do Club Fees Cover

The club fees cover coaching salaries, insurance, field usage leases, turf rental fees, state registration fees, referee fees, and other operating expenses for the  season (August - May). Fees cover all team training up to three times per week as well as goalkeeper training.  Fees adjust as players get older and the level of training increases. Then, fees for the U15-U19 ages are prorated due to the shorter season for high school players.

Payment Options

Club fees may be paid in full or through an installment plan.

Team Dues

Team dues will be collected at the team level to cover tournament registrations, league entry fees, referees for friendlies, and coach's travel expense. The club will coordinate with teams to assist the Team Manager and Treasurer in setting this budget to make sure teams are attending a developmentally appropriate level of games -- in quantity and quality.

Pre-season Camp is Free

We offer a Fall and Spring Pre-Season Camp at no additional cost to the players.

What is Not Included?

Team Dues (Academy + Classic only) and Uniform Kits are not included in your club fees.

Financial Assistance

The Neuse River Futbol Alliance Board of Directors realizes that the cost of playing competitive youth soccer can be outside the means of some families.  With that in mind, we have created a Scholarship Fund to help assist those families from a financial need base perspective.
The purpose of the Youth Scholarship program is to provide underprivileged or needs-based youth the opportunity to train, develop and play youth soccer in our community. It is intended to serve as a financial assistance program for those applicants and families requiring temporary or permanent assistance.

Scholarships are available for all levels of play offered by the organization and shall cover some percentage of Neuse River FA registration fees.  Please note for those receiving an award it requires a full season or full-year commitment depending upon the age group of the team.

To be considered, candidates must submit a completed application form, along with ALL required information by the appropriate deadlines.

Fall Deadlines:

  • June 30 for Classic play

Spring Deadlines:

  • December 1 for Classic play

To be eligible, candidates must first demonstrate a financial need for assistance, commit to making 75% of all practices and games for the season, as well as commit to volunteering hours of service to the organization.

A committee will review all applications. The review process will include scoring & ranking of each application.

After review, applicants will be notified by mail or e-mail of their acceptance. Notification will occur no later than 30 days from the application deadline.
