Club Fees

2021-2022 Season Update:

We understand that the on-going COVID-19 pandemic has profoundly impacted youth sports. We also recognize that conditions, government regulations, and sports program recommendations are constantly evolving.

As of October 2021, we are committed to executing a full club season.

While there may be unforeseen changes, we plan to hold practices, attend tournaments, and operate in accordance with state and local guidelines. Note that COVID-19 has forced some tournament hosts to increase fees due to higher operating costs, resulting in slightly higher costs for our program. These costs are reflected in our 2021-22 prices. While not anticipated for the 2021-22 season, if there are changes to tournament schedules, the club will return unused funds to families and calculate an adjusted tuition fee.   

Upfront Pricing

Virginia Elite has always been the only "all-inclusive" travel club in the region. The price you see is the total price you pay. No add-on costs for athlete travel. No add-on costs for fees or uniforms. Ever.

We understand various club pricing approaches can be confusing, which is why we just have one final price. When comparing our costs to other clubs, consider the following:

  • Some clubs may only post fees for part of the season. “Post-season” coaching and tournament fees may be add-ons.
  • Some clubs may post a price that excludes athlete travel. Families may be responsible for these add-on costs.
  • Some clubs may include some costs, but not all, for athlete travel. For example, hotel costs may be included, but air travel may be excluded.
  • Some clubs may exclude uniform costs

Our all inclusive pricing includes the following:

  • All tournament entry fees and other costs
  • All practice and coaching fees through the end of season (June)
  • For 15s-18s, all athlete tournament travel costs to include Hotel and Transportation (Bus/Plane/Baggage/Ground Transportation)
  • For 14s, the end-of-season national event to include athlete Hotel and Transportation (Bus/Plane/Baggage/Ground Transportation)
