It is the club's goal to keep the travel fees for playing to an absolute minimum. Our coaches are volunteers and the fields are provided to us for free by local municiple governments. Some of the costs associated with travel membership are referree fees, costs to line the fields, tournament fees, insurance, state membership fees, coach travel reimbursements and the costs of balls and other playing equipment.
OBX Storm travel teams are eligible for three levels of competition: Recreational, Challenge and Classic. Challenge and Classic teams cost a little more to register so the cost of membership dues are a little more. The annual season starts August 1 and ends July 31.
Option 1. Full player membership:
Recreational player $600 per year
Challenge or Classic player $650 per year
This provides a player six events (tournaments or league play), for each team as well as the costs associated above. Families with multiple siblings can receive 10% multi-sibling discount upon request.
Option 2. Associate player membership $250 per year.
No discounts are offered for associate players. This fee covers the cost of registering the player with the state so they are eligible to play for the team as well as the costs of insurance for the club. Associate players also must pay on a event basis. This cost is $85 per event.
The season starts September 1st and ends August 31st.
