Families will be asked to submit a $175 deposit at that time to secure the player's roster spot, followed by a $72 monthly payment, Nov.- June. Some teams may elect to practice just once per week, or start later, which would lower the overall cost. Those determinations will be announced as soon as they are finalized. Otherwise, all teams are provided with the following:
-Two practices per week. During Nov-Apr, two indoor practices will be held at Nardin Academy Athletic Center, although limited space may dictate one practice may be held at Elmwood Village Charter School on Hertel Ave. A DSC Trainer/Staff on site at each of these sessions unless DOC or Coach opts for practice without. During May-July, teams will continue to practice twice per week with a DSC Trainer/Staff on site at least one of those two practices unless DOC or Coach opts for practice without. These facility fees, Trainer fees and field costs are all included in the registration fee.
-Competition in the BWNYJSL once/twice a week, May-July. This includes the required NYSWYSA player insurance, U.S. Soccer player pass, Coach background check/Risk Management pass and League bond.
-One Outdoor Tournament registration fee is also included in each package.

Families are also responsible for all travel, lodging and food costs. Financial aid is available to those demonstrating the greatest need.
