The schedule of fees for 2020/21 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.
Coronavirus Impact and Discounts
In recognition of the 2019/20 season being curtailed, we are giving a £10 discount to all players with us last season (subject to all outstanding fees being paid). Similarly, in anticipation of a delayed start to the season and the planned resumption of the league in October, there will be a £10 discount to all players for the 2020/21 season.
We are also increasing our sibling discount to £10 per sibling.
In addition to the discounts we are introducing a new 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, with discounts applied to the final instalment.
- Signing-on Fee £50 (payable by August 1st)
- 2nd Instalment due Nov 1st 2020
- 3rd Instalment due Feb 1st 2021
Fees can be paid online (debit/credit card) or via BACS (internet banking). 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.
Mytchett Athletic might be one of the few local clubs to give fee concessions to the members at this challenging time. We will continue to offer the same programme of matches and 3G training throughout the season. Should the worse happen and the season is interrupted again, our payment schedule allows us the flexibility to review the outstanding fees during the season.
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 pitch hire and 3G training.
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. Clubs require affiliation to The FA, registration with leagues and local associations, insurance, continuous renewal of qualifications and investment in coach development in order to maintain FA Charter Standard status.
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 serves as our base for mini-soccer.
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.
