The 2023 player fee for the minis program is $95. This $95 fee breaks down roughly like this:
The minis program runs 10 weeks at two practices per week, for a cost of $4.75/practice.
The minis fee to PEI Soccer breaks down like this:
The youth fees are $30 higher due to having to pay for team registration ($100), referees ($25/referee/game), linesmen ($15/linesman/game) and tournaments. For U9 the referees are volunteers, so no extra fees.
The club reviews fees and discusses paid positions each year. So far we have always voted not to pay coaches except for some reimbursement for player registration fees. The reason is that the cost for one paid coach per group would be an additional $30/player, and that's paying only minimum wage and only for practices not games.
The calculation for how much it would cost to pay coaches is as follows:
The club executive has so far decided that increasing registration fees by $30 - $70, which would only pay the coach minimum wage, is not feasible.
