Boys Senior Academy - U8 (born 2011)

In previous years the club charged an annual Membership fee in January and a weekly fee of €5 per player thereafter. This method of collecting fees put an extra burden on Coaches and Managers on top of the excellent work they put into coaching and managing the teams. Throughout 2018 the Committee consulted with other clubs of similar size and found we were among a small number of clubs who had not advanced to more user friendly methods. The Annual Membership Fee and weekly subs will now be amalgamated into one figure which can be payed in 3 monthly installments (February, March & April) or in one payment. The club would like to assure parents and players that the amount for each Membership Category has been calculated on 2018 Membership and match fees and is in fact a slight reduction on the total paid by players last season (e.g. Boys Team member paid €120 Membership and €5 per week x 40 weeks = €320 for 2018). We would also like to point out the difference in fees for Boys Junior and Senior Academy is because Senior Academy attend on Friday evenings as well as Sunday mornings.


The Membership Fees for 2019 are as follows:

Boys Teams - €300 (or 3 installments of €100)

Boys Senior Academy - €270 (or 3 installments of €90)

Boys Junior Academy - €195 (or 3 installments of €65)

Girls Teams - €300 (or 3 installments of €100)

Girls Academy - €195 (or 3 installments of €65)


The club are aware that not everyone is in a position to pay the above and in cases of extreme difficulty please contact your manager/coach who can put you in touch with a member of the Committee who can deal with you in strict confidence.

 

What does your membership pay for and where does it go ?

Contrary to what some may believe, Membership Fees are not for profit for the club. Most will agree the facilities we have are among the best around and the costs in simply maintaining these are enormous. We are one of only a handful of clubs who have a full sized floodlit Astro. The playing surface on it has a life span of 10 years and will cost in excess of €250,000 to replace every decade. This means we have to put aside €25,000 every year for this alone. On top of this we have to pay for Floodlighting from September - April 5 nights every week which runs into five figures annually. Our grass pitches have to be sanded and maintained every year along with all machinery associated with maintaining them. Other costs entailed in running the club are Clubhouse light and heat, Insurance for each player, League Registration Fees for every team and player, Legal Fees, Rates & Water charges and all other administration costs, buying equipment for every team (training & match footballs, bibs, cones etc) and paying referees fees for every home game throughout the season (on an average weekend Referees Fees alone amount to €300 - €400). On top of this the club will be buying shorts and socks for all members who have paid their registration fees.

We appreciate that there may be some resistance to switching to this method of payment. However it is necessary in order for Newbridge Town FC to properly budget for running a club of this size and to maintain the excellent facilities your children enjoy. We are only custodians of the club and it is our duty to ensure it is properly maintained for future generations.

Players signing for Teams in Leagues

A player cannot register without the following:

Copy of birth Cert( If a new member of the club) and a Completed Club Player Profile Form (This only has to be completed by players who are not registering through on-line payment - anyone registering and paying on-line will be required to read this and by completing the registration process you are agreeing to it's terms & conditions).

 



Family Discount

Family Discount will be offered to all members at the following rates : 2 children = 15% discount; 3 children = 20% discount; 4 children = 25% discount; 5 children = 30% discount etc. 

Discount is calculated on the combined total membership owed : eg 2 players in boys teams = 300 x 2 = €600 so Family Discount is €60.



 

Commitment

It is expected that all players that register to play at our club will be available for the team. If you are aware that you are unable to attend matches or training due to other extracurricular activities, reconsider your participation in the club this year. Your inability to commit to the club is disruptive. It puts pressure on players from other teams to help your team out during matches, increases the burden on managers/coaches and result in forfeited matches and fines for the team. It could also result in a team being folded mid season which in turn will leave players with no team to play on and being unable to transfer to another club.
