Costs/Dues

         At River City we pride ourselves in the transparency we provide for all to see what fees players will pay throughout the season. We are proud that we will continue to keep our costs at some of the lowest in the area while still running a major club that competes regionally and nationally. We provide players a high level of training in all practices, national level competition, recruiting seminars, extra specialty position training, all uniforms, warm-ups and bags, agility and plyo training, and a great Big Sis-Lil Sis program all within the dues.

         We also understand the need for families making payments over time during the club season vs paying a large amount in a short period of time.  We have always worked with families to to help them keep their child playing a sport they love and not being eliminated from the sport due to high costs.

We have a variety of options to help with your club fees

  • Working Scholarship Program (2018-19 a min. of four $500 scholarships)
  •  Payment plans to meet your financial needs (1 payment, 4 months, 6 months)
