Membership Fees - 2017/18 Season

For the 2017/18 season our fees have risen for the first time in 4 years and are as follows:

Players joining mid-season will pay a commensurate amount at the manager's discretion.

In addition, AFC Lightning run a family discount scheme (see below). We are able to offer support, in confidence, to anyone who may have difficulty in meeting these costs. Talk to your Team Manager for details.

All fees are payable by July 31st, or as soon as a player completes and returns his/her registration form, as this helps us meet the up-front costs of league registration, kit, equipment, referees, pitch hire and training venues. Please note that Membership Fees are non-refundable.

All cheques to be made payable to "AFC Lightning" and are to be handed to your manager or coach with the name of the player and team on the reverse side. e.g. "Josephine Bloggs, U10s"

What is included in the price?

AFC Lightning membership covers the following:

* Small voluntary contributions may be requested for third-party location indoor / astroturf training & tournaments.

The AFC Lightning Family Discount Scheme

We do offer a family discount for more than 1 player within the same immediate family: The oldest child pays full price, second child pays 50%, third and subsequent children pay 25% (of the subscribed amount). For example a family with 3 players aged 12, 9 and 6 would pay £110 + £40.00 + £15.00 = £165.00.
