Our registration fee is about $350 per school year (or $175 per semester) and covers field rentals, referees, insurance, tournament entry fees, and scholarships for those who cannot afford to play.
The one-time uniform purchase fee is about $45 (as players grow, of course, a new uniform might need to be purchased at some point).
In the winter, United teams play at Soccer Planet; the only cost there is what you pay Soccer Planet, about $80 per session. The winter sessions are NOT mandatory, but they are highly recommended.

Comparing our annual costs to other local options:
|Typical Club||Urbana United||Description/Comment|
|Annual Club Reg||$1,200+||$300-$350||Typical club gets you 10-12 more matches, a few more tournaments and 40+ more practices (if you attend them all), but if kids also play park district matches and practices, there is less of a difference|
|Park District Reg||N/A||$80||U2 is “park district-plus”; we encourage participation there|
|Uniform Fees||$130||$45-$60||Typical club offers practice jerseys; U2 might soon as well (hence the possible extra $15)|
|Travel/hotel costs||$400||nothing; gas money only||For typical travel club, conservatively figuring two nights each semester for hotels (not to mention more gas money)|
|Soccer Planet||$160||$270||U2 parents pay more: annual fee and all three sessions vs. typical clubs perhaps taking care of annual fee and one session|
|TOTAL||$1,890+||$695-$760||U2 costs less than half (closer to a third) of a typical club|
*If you are in need of financial assistance, U2 has some scholarship programs available. Please contact Club President Tony Mancuso for more information.
