Cardinal Costs

Cardinal Costs

The Cardinals organization is a not for profit organization.  We base our fees solely on the ability to cover the annual on the cost of our annual training, facilities, tournament and league, equipment and legal, insurance and accounting costs.  All of those costs are third party charges.  The organization itself is also supported by literally hundreds of hours of volunteer parent involvement including all administration of the organization and coaching at the U-8 through U-12 ages. Each year our costs go up slightly as facilities, trainer costs and tournament fees all tend to go up slightly on an annual basis.  These costs are never fully known until usually the January timeframe.  In addition, the Cardinals do attempt to provide some scholarship support which is described below.  Here is a rough breakdown of costs for last year which should provide a good gauge for this year’s expectations:
