The schedule of fees for 2021/22 is as follows.
- U7s-U8s £150
- U9s-U10s £160
- U11s-U12s £170
- U13s-U18s £180
There are no additional charges. The fees include all training and matches, the cost of pitch hire and referees. Teams train on floodlit 3G pitches during the winter season, and the cost of 3G pitch hire is included in the fees.
Match day kit is also provided by the club. Mytchett Athletic is a Nike Partner Club and all teams wear Nike kit.
By registering as a player with Mytchett Athletic FC each player is covered under the club’s Public Liability Insurance and Group Personal Accident Insurance.
Last season we operated a signing-on fee followed by two further instalments. This allowed us the flexibility to cope with a stop/start season. Ultimately we never requested the final instalment, and we are proud we could offer that fee concession to the members during a challenging time.
How To Pay
We are continuing the payment schedule to help families spread the costs over the season. There will be a signing-on fee for all players, followed by two further instalments over the season.
- Signing-on Fee £50 (payable before playing matches)
- 2nd Instalment due Nov 1st 2021
- 3rd Instalment due Feb 1st 2022
Fees can be paid online (debit/credit card) or via BACS (internet banking). Our membership and billing platform (Commentary Box) now supports faster payments using Open Banking. We encourage you to settle your bills this way to reduce our payment provider fees.
If you have difficulties with paying on time please email [email protected] so we can help. Any player that falls into unauthorised arrears may be suspended from training and matches.
Fees are discounted pro-rata for players who join after October.
We also offer a discounted rate for players that train only.
There is a sibling discount of £10 per sibling, applied to the signing-on fee.
Where Your Money is Spent
Training and Pitches. The costs of running a grassroots football club can be significant. At Mytchett Athletic we don’t own our pitches, so a large part of our expenditure goes to local councils and commercial facility providers for matchday hire and training on 3G pitches.
Referees. We cannot play the game without referees, but the cost to us for having matchday officials also represents an investment in their personal development.
Kit. The playing kit, the footballs and all of the training equipment and accessories are necessary expenses for any football club. We budget on a 3-year lifespan for our match shirts and encourage teams to secure shirt sponsorship.
Administration. Like all clubs we require affiliation to The FA, registration with leagues and local associations, insurance, as well as investment in IT systems to support the effective running of the club.
Coach Development. We invest in our coaches, providing them with the skills and qualifications to coach the players.
Presentations. We set aside money to celebrate the players at the end of the season.
Bellew Road. We budget for the maintenance and upkeep of the pavilion at Bellew Road, which this season plays hosts to our U11s.
Disability. We are proud to continue our support for disability football via our Football For All initiative and seek continued sponsorship to fund facility hire and specialist coaching.
