Marin FC has three fees each season; The Club Fee, the Referee and Volunteer Program (RVP) Deposit, and the Team Fees. At registration, a registration fee is collected that includes the Club Fee, the RVP Deposit and the first and last months of the season/team fees. The remaining seaaon/team fee installments are collected monthly July through April (ten payments).
Fee levels are nuanced as depicted below, and team fees are solely collected for use by the team and if there are funds remaining at end of the season, they are refunded. The table immediately below then can be seen as maximum amounts unless a team elects to expand their budget or calendar of events. Please review carefully the important notes below which go into greater detail on all elements.
Refunds at Season’s End : Every team at Marin FC has a unique team planner and budget. The fees shown above are a collection system to ensure all teams are adequately funded for all expenses including coaching, equipment, tournament and league fees, etc. but excluding uniform and travel costs. Marin FC plans team budgets carefully and collection intends to surpass by a safety margin the team budget. Any excess revenue remaining at the season close out is proportionately REFUNDED to the players including financial aid recipients.
The Monthly Team Fee is a maximum of ten (10) payments for Red and Blue teams who play a full year calendar. For Steel and Titanium teams who play a half year schedule, there is a maximum of five (5) monthly payments. Payments begin the month following the registration month. If Steel or Titanium teams elect to extend their season to a full year, the additional five (5) monthly payments apply.
RVP Refunds : The Referee and Volunteer Program deposit is included in the registration fee, so players who volunteer or referee during the season will earn a $100 refund. The total fees shown above at the right include this potential refund.
Blue Teams : Players on Marin FC’s first teams (Blue) may see an increase to their monthly team fee amount of between 15-25% ($30-$50) due to these teams’ increased training and competition schedule.
Registration Fee : The registration fee is paid through the registration process in TeamSnap at the start of the season and immediately following tryouts. Players may pay online or elect to "Pay Offline" if they wish to mail in a check or money order (cash is not accepted). Instructions are provided during registration.
Financial Aid : Players either approved for or applying for financial aid may so indicate during registration through TeamSnap. This will allow them to complete registration and the club will provide for them separately a confidential payment schedule according to their award.
Monthly Team Fees : The team fees paid during the season monthly may be mailed to the club or through the Marin FC Payment Portal on the club's website. The Payment Portal will allow online payment by credit or debit card, or PayPal account, the regular monthly team fee by default or the option to specify another amount if desired or required.
Reminders and processing fees : All players with a payment due will recieve an email reminder approximately five days prior to the payment due date. All online payments will incur processing fees.
Award: All players approved for financial aid will be awarded a percentage discount based upon demonstrated need. This percentage award is then applied to the registration fee amount and monthly team fee amount.
Uniforms: Any player awarded financial aid recieves a full uniform kit when new to the club or when new uniforms are required (typically a two year cycle).
Travel Grants:Any player awarded financial aid may apply for travel grants which, if approved, will be calculated in alignment with their percentage award level.
