Intermediate Fees and Uniform Information Intermediate Fees and Uniform Information

Cost of HFC Intermediate

HFC makes every effort to contain the cost of this program through tournament hosting, fundraising, and the use of a growing volunteer base. It is the philosophy of ABYSA that cost should not be a deterrent for any qualified player to participate in Intermediate soccer. 

Intermediate Fees: $439
Fee covers coaching, fields, facility rental, facility maintenance, equipment, club and state player registration, insurance and other administrative costs.

Payment Plan Option:

HFC offers a payment plan for Intermediate players. The $439 fee does not need to be paid all at once. The $439 fee for the season can be paid in three installments. For more detailed information regarding payment plans please contact Nancy McCord at [email protected]

ABYSA has established 3 programs to mitigate the costs of playing Academy soccer: Ingle's Gift cards, Tournament Program Ad Sales, and G.O.A.L.S. Financial Aid programs. Please see the 'Methods for Reducing the Cost..' Section below for more information on each of these programs. 


HFC Intermediate Uniform Ordering Information and Link 

Ordering a uniform does not mean that your player is registered with the HFC Intermediate Program. If you order a uniform, but do not register through PlayMetrics, we will not be able to place you with a team and add you to team/league communications.

New players to the HFC Intermediate program must purchase the Intermediate game day uniform package pictured below (approximately $100).

Returning players
that have previously played in the HFC Academy or Intermediate will have the option to purchase a uniform but do not need to as they can use the game day uniform from the previous year. Other items, including a warm-up suit, gear bag, rain jacket, sweatshirts, and fan gear can also be purchased for an additional cost.

Training Shirts (gray practice shirts) will be provided by the HFC office at the beginning of each season.

    2. If you can see the items, but can't get to the cart/payment  screen

      2. If you are on a phone, you may also have to change your phone/tablet to 'desktop' mode in the browser setting to get the payment system to work. Lloyd's is working on a solution, but their payment system doesn't always work correctly on mobile browsers.

Methods for Reducing the Cost of HFC Programming Methods for Reducing the Cost of HFC Programming

Aid to Players and Families: 
It is the philosophy of ABYSA/HFC that cost should not be a deterrent for any qualified player to participate in HFC's Competitive or Academy soccer programs. Therefore, affordable monthly payment plan options are available for players in all programs. In addition, ABYSA/HFC has established 3 programs to mitigate the costs of playing classic soccer: the Ingle's Gift Card program, Riverside Tournament Program Ad Sales, and G.O.A.L.S. Financial Aid. 


Ingle's Gift Card Program
Ingle's gift cards are purchased by ABYSA/HFC at a discount from Ingle's. Player families purchase these gift cards at face value from their team representative or HFC scrip volunteers. 5% of the purchase is applied as a credit against their team fees. Example: A purchase of $100 of Ingle's gift cards yields $100 worth of groceries (or gas!) and a $5 reduction of the player's fees. Some families have paid all their fees from Ingle's gift card purchases alone!

Tournament Program Advertising Sales
If you’re looking for ways to help pay for your family’s cost of playing HFC Academy, Intermediate, or Classic soccer, you can raise money to help directly offset your player’s fees by participating in program ad sales for the Annual Riverside Summer Shootout soccer tournament program. Families will receive credit for 50% of the value of each ad they sell. 
(For example, if you sell a full page ad for $450, you will receive $225 credit.). The deadline for tournament Ad Sales is July 28, 2023.
We hope you will find this program helpful for your family as an effective way to offset travel soccer costs. It has not been unusual for families to pay for nearly all of their player fees using this program!

Financial Aid Program

G.O.A.L.S. Financial Aid (Granting Opportunities for Advancement in Life through Soccer)
This program provides financial support to committed players who otherwise would not be able to participate in classic soccer. The Financial Aid Application is an online form. All information is kept confidential. Applicants should be committed to competitive soccer and should regularly participate in the other fundraising opportunities offered by ABYSA. The Financial Aid is need-based and each application is individually reviewed by the G.O.A.L.S. Funding Committee.

ABYSA is confident that, by utilizing the Ingle's gift card, Tournament Ad Sales and if necessary, G.O.A.L.S Financial Aid program, any committed player and family can financially afford to participate in our competitive soccer program.
