We encourage each player and his/her family to help us keep costs down through volunteerism. Opportunities for service hours are varied and on-going. Teenagers are eligible for Bright Futures community service hours and should make the appropriate arrangements with their guidance counselor.

Team Fee Expenses
We do not bundle team expenses with registration fees as experience has demonstrated this type of fee structure places an unfair burden on families with players on teams competing in fewer or less expensive events than teams that participate in more tournaments and elite events out-of-state. Space Coast United does work with our coaching staff to take advantage of economies of scale to minimize team costs, but trusts our coaches to decide which events align best with their team’s stage of competitive development.
Therefore, in addition to the program fees explained above, the members of each team are responsible for sharing the costs of team-specific expenses such as tournament registration fees, non-league referee fees (for example, scrimmages officiated by certified referees), coach travel expenses for out-of-county games and tournaments, etc. Fees are equal per player whether attending every event or not.
As team expenses are entirely dependent upon the age group and level of play, especially with respect to the number, type and location of tournaments, parents are encouraged to contact the coach and/or team manger to request a projected team budget for the year if one has not already been provided for them.
Each family is responsible for their own travel expenses associated with team commitments.
The Club supports teams by promoting their fundraising events on social media to assist them in offsetting their team-specific expenses, thereby lowering direct costs to families.
Upon accepting a position on a Space Coast United Competitive Program Team you are required to pay the full registration fees for the entire year, even if you leave the club prior to the end of the season. We do review exceptional cases for consideration of a refund. Examples may include season-ending injuries, family relocation of a distance that prohibits regular play with the Club, and other special or unusual circumstances.
