 are mostly fixed and should be generally the same across clubs. Only a few of the costs are variable and these are the ones you should be looking at most closely as members to determine whether you are paying for additional value or are simply paying extra to improve someone's lifestyle. Also, YOU have the right (by law) to see what the club is collecting and spending! Remember, soccer

 clubs are non-profit entities and are NOT allowed to purposely generate profit for themselves. That doesn't mean it doesn't happen especially if you have a board that is not necessarily representative of the membership. The tax laws COULD hold the board personally liable, however. In any case, this cost guide will help you understand what the real costs are and how they are broken down so you can stay on top of things.

Generally, the following costs are associated with playing competitive soccer

 in North Texas. Amounts collected vary from Club to Club, but should not be in excess of what is actually needed to pay for the team’s expenses. Again, as a non-profit organization, which soccer clubs are, revenue should not exceed expenses. Non-profit organization’s are not intended to be a money making entity for any one individual or individuals.

Examples of common per player expenses are:
- Club Dues
- League & Tournament Fees         
- Coaching Fees
- Uniform Fee

A breakdown and actual examples of these fees can be found at www.pumasfc.com.

*When reading over the NTSSA fact sheet received at any tryouts look over what the total cost to play does not include. Many times, Clubs or teams will list indoor fees, uniform fees and tournament fees as additional costs not included in the base fee per player to play. Don’t forget to ask how many out of town tournaments the team will be traveling to also. These tournaments may or may not be within a reasonable driving distance and therefore require an overnight stay at a hotel in addition to meal fees while out of town.

*Additional Club Dues, not mentioned above, which can significantly raise player fees, can include DOC (Director of Coaching) Fees, DOC (boys), DOC (girls), Field Development Fees. In addition to these, some Clubs also use Club members monies to help defray costs associated with their Academy programs, such as brochures & t-shirts. While this is ok if the Academy and the Club have joint non-profit status under the umbrella of one application with the IRS, it is another issue if the Academy is in no way a part of the non-profit designation the Club has received from the IRS. Remember, just because the name is the same doesn’t mean they are the same per IRS rules and guidelines. In reality, if your fees are being used for the benefit of another entity, you are paying too much. In a true non-profit organization...revenue cannot exceed expenses.

**Keep in mind that this is an estimate and should not be considered indicative of either the Pumas Futbol Club or any other club that chooses to defray their membership's costs through donations, fundraising, etc. Some of the costs listed above are fixed for all clubs, but there are variable costs (such as coaches fees) that could raise or lower the total to some extent. It does, however, provide a good guideline of the cost "ceiling" associated with running a select team within North Texas to assist you in your analysis and decision making.
