The annual costs for each player is approximately $1150-1250. Fees will be lower in even number years (e.g. 2014) for returning players as uniforms are updated only every two years.
A $200-$300 deposit is paid in the month of June for registration, uniform and league fees. The remaining balance is paid in installments across 10 months from August to May if the monthly payment plan is selected or in July, October, January and April if the quarterly plan is selected.
Players’ annual costs include the following:
Optional costs not included:
The team manager, who is a parent volunteer, will work with the coach to arrange for practice locations. Most teams practice in the general area of Brookside for fall and spring. Winter practice facilities include locations in Kansas City metro area at indoor gym locations.
BSC is currently in negotiations to provide competitive team practice space on turf fields at the new Swope Soccer Village opening in the fall of 2014.
Games will be played with the Heartland Soccer League at their field locations in Overland Park. The winter season games will depend on the league selected by coach.
BSC is affiliated with the Missouri Youth Soccer Association (MYSA) and age divisions are defined by MYSA. Age divisions are based on birth date cut-off for a player. A player cannot be older than the cut-off birth date to play in the listed age division. For example a U10 player must be born on or after August 1, 2004.

We realize players who make competitive teams still have friends who play recreational and would like to continue to play with them. Players will be allowed to play on both a competitive and recreational team. In the event of any game or practice conflicts, the competitive team should take precedence.
BSC offers need-based scholarships. We strive to expand scholarship opportunities through sponsorship and fundraisers. A scholarship application will be included in the email to players who receive offers from a team and will be evaluated and awarded by the BSC Board of Directors.
BSC offers a player discount of $200 to the children of team managers.
