Jersey Deposit
We reuse NCFC Jerseys each season to reduce fees to our membership. It is important that these are returned to NCFC at the end of the playing season when requested. Players will be issued 2 jersey (home and away).

At registration you will be charged an $80 Jersey Deposit fee. This fee will be returned at the end of the season once your jerseys have been returned in good condition. Otherwise, a $40 per jersey fee will be retained for any damaged or unreturned jerseys.
PAYMENT

North Calgary FC registration is completed through a team management platform called Teamsnap. When registering, you will be asked to choose a payment method.

We accept the following payment methods:

    • Credit Card (plus a ~3% surcharge for processing). Credit Card payments may be made in full or split into periodic instalments.
    • E-transfer sent directly to fees@northcalgaryfc.com with the player name in the memo field. **A minimum Credit Card payment of $100 must be made before E-transfer payments will be accepted. Please choose Installment payments when checking out.**
      • Kidsport or Jumpstart applications. (Please notify the treasurer if you are making applications for funding and then forward your acceptance email to the treasurer once you receive notifications from those organizations.)
      COACHING
      All teams are coached by qualified volunteer coaches. Extensive soccer knowledge and playing experience is definitely an asset, however it is not necessary to coach.

      Our Academy Team supports the coaches by providing them with weekly lesson plans and detailed activities to use in practices.
      We have many experienced coaches who are willing to help mentor new coaches to make sure all of our teams succeed.

      North Calgary FC provides coaching education to all of our coaches. Starting with the Soccer Canada Community Stream Workshops and working up to the Provincial C Licence coaching certificate. To apply for a coaching position or to find out more about these programs, visit our COACHING page.

      VOLUNTEERING

      North Calgary FC is run by volunteers, and therefore as a minimum, each family group is asked to support your soccer program by volunteering for one position each soccer season. If all parents participate, the soccer program will continue to operate smoothly and efficiently. Most of the volunteer positions require only a small time commitment.

      This season, for our U7-U19 teams, the $100 mandatory volunteer fee has been removed from the registration cost. We still need help from our soccer families with a number of activities!

      We require volunteers for the position of Head Coach, Assistant Coach, Team Manager, Casino Volunteers, Club Management and for miscellaneous positions. We will provide compensation for these positions in the form of club credit.

      **If there are no coaching volunteers for your team, a $75/per player fee may be charged to pay for a coach.

      FUNDING

      We believe that every child should have the opportunity to play.

      Do you need help with funding for your child's registration fees? Both Kidsport and Jumpstart are here to help keep kids in the game.  They do not apply the funding to technical training fees, but North Calgary FC has payment plans to help you out.  Contact Us to find out more.
