Why do player fees go up every year?
Player fees naturally increase each year from U8-U9-U10-U11-U12-U13-U14-U15 and then level out in the U15-U18 age group range. The increases are reflected in the level of volume and programming offered (more training, league games and tournaments), the increase in experience, time, travel & commitment required of the coaching staff, and the ever-rising field rental costs, league & tournament entry fees.
Why is there a significant increase from U14 to U15?
The increase from U14-U15 is reflected in the technology package and being in the U15-U18 college recruiting programming. Fees increase due to the addition of HUDL, Streamsports & Sports Recruits and traveling & participating at prominent college showcase events focused on high level performance and college placement.
