Accepted Players

Overview

Congratulations!  Thank you for choosing to play for Seattle United! As another season begins, we know that you have many choices when it comes to choosing a soccer club for your player(s). We appreciate you choosing Seattle United and don’t take this responsibility lightly. The information on this page is intended to answer some basic questions regarding player registration.  Please read this section thoroughly before you proceed with online registration!

Volunteering to Help Your Team and Seattle United: Seattle United is a volunteer driven organization and we rely on contributions of time and effort from parents and families to make our club successful. As part of registering for the club, you also accept a commitment to lend your time and talents to both your team and to the club as a whole.

All players new to SYSA (Seattle Youth Soccer Association, our local governing Association) will need to have an electronic version (jpeg file) of a proof-of-age document ready to upload during the online registration process. Acceptable forms of this include all government issued birth certificates or passports, as well as consular certificates of birth or citizenship. New players will be required to upload a current, forward-facing head shot photo during registration as well. Please have these ready before beginning online registration as you will not be able to complete registration without them. Returning players will not be required to complete these two steps, unless either the document or photo is not already on file.

Please note: Per USYSA guidelines, you must use your child’s FULL legal name as it appears on his/her birth certificate to complete registration. The name must match the birth certificate identically – please do not shorten it, use nicknames, or drop given last names.

Debit, Credit or E-Check Payments Only: All payments (including those utilizing the payment plan) must be made online. The club accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover or automated e-check payments.

Note:  E*Check Payment is strongly encouraged whether paying in full or when using one of the offered payment plans. Credit card processing fees consume an extraordinary amount of club revenue. Paying by e*check is simple, and saves the club a substantial amount of money over the course of the seasonal year. If you choose to pay by credit card, you will be assessed a fee of 2.5% based on your player’s program cost. To use e*check, please have a current check ready at registration. You will be asked to enter both bank and checking account information as listed on your checks.

Payment Plans:  A payment plan is available, but we encourage you to pay in full now as its the simplest method for both you and the club.  To make installment payments, select ‘Payment Plan’ in the payment section at the end of the registration process. If you choose to use the payment plan, you can pay your registration fee in four, equal quarterly payments or eight monthly installments. Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • All monthly payments are charged on the 15th of each month.
  • All payment plan users will receive a reminder email on the 5th of each month that a payment will be charged.
  • The first payment at the time of registration is the “commitment fee”.  This is at least 20% of the total club fee (20% using eight installments, 25% using four installments).  This is non-refundable, whether paying in full or via the payment plan, and is required to reserve your spot on the team.
  • All families who opt into one of the payment plans are responsible for keeping the payment information current so that all scheduled payments can process successfully (please see instructions for updating your payment information below).

Financial Aid:  Financial assistance is available and will be awarded by the Seattle United Financial Aid committee.  To apply for financial aid, please navigate to the Financial Aid page, read the policy and fill out the Financial Aid application that is linked there.  Print the completed application and mail it to the address on the form. At that same time, you must complete the online registration process.  Please choose the corresponding FINANACIAL AID registration category online (for example, if your team is a premier team, you would choose ‘Premier FINANCIAL AID Player Registration’).

Refund Policy:  Upon commitment to a team, you are financially responsible for all Club fees as stated for the entire playing year.  Players will not be released from Seattle United unless all club program fees and team fees are up to date at the time of the request. Team fees are non-refundable. Players with a season-ending injury may be eligible for a refund or credit with the amount to be determined on a case-by-case basis. A physician’s note must accompany such requests when a season-ending injury is involved.  Players moving more than 50 miles during the season are eligible for a refund with the amount to be determined. Requests for pro-rated reimbursements, releases and withdrawals must be presented in writing to the club registrar, Paige Blomsø, and to the Executive Director, Kevin Long.
