At MetaSport We’re all In!
At Meta, we encourage our players to exhibit and learn Respect, Enthusiasm, Technique and Soccer Intelligence.
We’re excited to train and develop players who want to learn and demonstrate respect for coaches, staff, parents, referees ... and the opposing team. We hope to attract parents who support their player's individual development within a team structure and who display mutual respect for the coaching staff and referees.
We're all in this together, so why not make it a great experience and help our kids - and their teammates - be the best they can be?
Parent & Player time Commitment
We highly emphasize the importance of each player's role within a team. If some aren't ready to commit to consistent trainings and game play, we can't build a great team and that's just not fair for the players and parents who did sign up to give it their all.
Fall and spring, 85-100% attendance at trainings and games
Winter and summer, 75-100% attendance at trainings and games
Depending on the age group, teams may participate in 1 - 5 tournaments a year. After Spring tryouts and once a player is offered a position on a team, we ask families to commit to attending the team's designated tournaments.
Each team member is responsible - regardless of whether they can participate - for paying for their portion of a tournament registration, which can cost between $40 and $85 per player.
Upon registration and commitment to a team, players are financially responsible for all club fees as stated for the entire playing year. Team fees are non-refundable. Payment is due when registering with UYSA/Affinity and MetaSport FC. Payment plans are available for tuition (coaching fees); etc. If payments are more than one month late, they may incur a late fee.
Note: If payment to UYSA/Affinity is more than 30 days past due, it will result in UYSA removing the player from the team roster.
All of the above said - please let us know if you are experiencing financial strain, we’re more than happy to work with you on a personalized payment plan. Email MetaSport Admin Michelle Wixom.

REFUNDS & TRANSFERRING
Players must be current on all club and team fees at the time of the transfer/leave requests. Players with a season-ending injury may be eligible for a refund or credit with the amount to be determined on a case-by-case basis when that request (with doctor’s note) is made during the course of the season. Players moving more than 50 miles during the season are eligible for a refund with the amount to be determined. Requests for releases and withdrawals must be presented in writing to MetaSport’s Club Director, Britain Thomas.
All players are required to purchase uniforms and training apparel every two years, per their teams’ purchasing schedule and kit requirements. The fall of 2020 is the next year we will be ordering new Meta uniforms.
