2022-2023 Season Update:
While the current economic climate is unpredictable and costs continue to rise, Virginia Elite has based the tuition budget on actual pricing or actual prices that incurred from the 2021-2022 season when current actuals were not available. While there may be unforeseen economic changes, Virginia Elite does not go back to families to request additional money should our budgeted prices increase for whatever reason. The prices you see listed will only change if a tournament is not attended and the unused money returned to families associated with that team.
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)

Then we compared it to three other area clubs and outlined the information in the illustration below the payment options section. Please scroll down for more information.
