Travel Program Overview

Playing on a Park Ridge Soccer Club team requires a year-long commitment by the player and family.  During the outdoor season, teams practice three times a week starting in mid-August. The fall league is usually eight games from September-early November. The spring league is also eight games and runs from mid-April until mid-June.  Most games are played on weekends but mid-week games do occur. 

The Travel Fees for the 2021-2022 year are:

  • $1,275 per player for 2014 (U8) and 2013 (U9)

When a player registers to accept a roster spot, payment is due, either in full or through our payment plan. Uniforms are typically about $120 with additional Spiritwear offered at a variety of prices.  

Once a player has accepted a spot on a team and fees have been paid, there are no refunds given for any reason.
