Team Deposits Explained

To keep you from shouldering the entire cost of registering your team, we provide an option to register as your team with a deposit.  This allows you to manage your team privately, but each player will pay a portion of the league fee.  Due to the administrative work required the required payments per team will not equal the same amount as full payment upfront. Of note, there is a significant discount for teams making one upfront payment. Click below to learn more.

Individual – Player Pool

There are no planned ‘house teams’ for our 11v11 League. However, we fully support individuals registering without an affiliated team. We will work with all registered teams to help you find a good fit for your skill level. Placement will only occur once you have registered.  We anticipate being able to place all individuals on teams, however, in the event that team placement does not occur, a full refund will be issued.

Player Cards

To join a team or register individually, you are required to have a valid Metro East FA player card. $25 gets you set for 12 months from your first game. This is cheaper than the most popular local indoor facility and with 4 seasons annually, this equates to less than 50 cents per game. Your player card keeps us affiliated with US Soccer Federation through US Adult Soccer Association & Illinois State Soccer Association. This helps us bring you the best league experiences in referees and fields. Metro East FA does not see a penny of your fee, but it does help maintain insurance for the league as well as supplemental medical insurance for you if you should get hurt playing. You can purchase your player card when you register for either league.
