Utah Celtic FC is proud of the balance, character, development, and success we instill in each of our players. Since 1996, we have seen our teams win 50+ state cups, 9 regional championships, and 2 national championships. While producing this type of success, we take a cost-conscious approach to club management to minimize the financial impact on our player’s families.

Explanation of Fees:

Club Fees are the necessary fees to run Utah Celtic FC. These fees cover the cost of equipment, field rental,

indoor facility, field upkeep, goalkeeper training, coaching directors, coaching education and resources, communication/scheduling app, administrative costs, marketing, Worker’s Compensation insurance, and other miscellaneous fees and expenses.

Coaching Fees are compensation for the coaching staff. This fee generally increases with age and level of play because the coaches spend more time training GA/E64 and premier teams.

GA/E64 Fees cover the cost of GA/E64 membership fees, league registration fees, the first round of playoffs registration fees, referee fees, trainers, HUDL, and administrative costs.

UYSA Fees are determined by the Utah Youth Soccer Association (UYSA), which is the governing body of youth soccer in Utah. Their fees include the cost of membership, league administration, and the development of new fields in the state of Utah.

UYSA Ref Fee covers the cost of paying game referees as well as referee assignors.

Uniform Fee covers the cost of a player’s uniforms. New Uniforms are required every other year. 2024 is not a new uniform year – only new players in the club will need to purchase a new uniform.

Players that participate on Utah Celtic High School Provisional teams will incur additional fees for fields, refs, and UYSA registration for that season of play.

When a player accepts their spot and is placed on a team, that player is making a ONE-YEAR COMMITMENT to the team as well as a FINANCIAL COMMITMENT for all related fees for that soccer year, including team and travel fees. Please note that the costs listed do not include Team or Travel fees. Team fees will be determined by each team and are subject to what the team decides to do

on a team basis, for example, tournaments, filming equipment, and other team activities.

All parents must accept an agreement affirming they understand the financial obligation they are making to Utah Celtic FC and the costs they are required to pay. A player who is delinquent in paying fees, whether it be club or team fees, will be removed from the team roster and will not be allowed to play until they are current on their payments. Payment plans are offered by club and team financial administrators.

2024-25 Fees

Financial aid

Utah Celtic FC offers a limited amount of financial aid to qualifying players. The Financial Aid application deadline is June 15, 2024. The initial June payment is a mandatory payment that is not covered by financial aid that helps cover field maintenance, field rental, and indoor facility fees. This must be paid before any financial aid will be awarded. Financial aid recipients are responsible for the following fees: UYSA fees, GA/E64 fees, uniform fees, team/tournament fees, and travel fees.

Players with a Volunteer Coach are not eligible for financial aid.

Financial Aid can be applied for in the PlayMetrics mobile app by clicking the Programs tab (bottom of the screen) and then the Programs drop-down at the top of the screen or on a desktop by clicking on Programs and the Financial Aid tab.
