ALL teams must register online at least 5 days before the league starts. The new team registration requires the team Captain’s contact information, a team roster and any special notes/request for the team. The team roster of at least 9 players is required by the first game of the season.
Additionally, each player must sign the Maracana waiver online through DASH. This waiver is now electronic and online. The youth waiver form is distinct because anyone under 18 needs to have a parent or guardian signature prior to their participation. Players can be added to a team roster only after they have completed their waiver. We require a copy of birth certificate or state id for participation in Youth league as this is an age division league. See Youth League for more information on youth league cost and team fee payment details.
We now complete all of our waivers, team registration, and payment online through the dash system.
Payment Options for Adult Leagues:
There are 2 payment options for our indoor soccer leagues on the main field:
A. One $700 payment for the entire team covers all players (max. 15 players) or each player can pay his/her portion of the fee before or at the first scheduled game. A $50 dollar deposit is due with registration form to hold team spot. The advantage of the team registration fee is that it can make overall cost per player less (depending on number of rostered players) and guests do not have to pay because the team fee is paid before or at the first game.
B. Or, individual payment of $80 per player per team (min. 9 players). This should be paid at player’s first game or paid over the first four games: $20 the first game, $20 the second, $20 the third, $20 the fourth (a total of $80 per individual).
Payment for options A and B are due by or at the first game.
GUESTS: All guests should check in at registration desk, sign Maracana waiver, and pay guest fee of $10. Guests do not count as rostered players so cannot play for playoff games. If a guest is joining the team they need to advise registration desk staff and discuss payment options within the first half of the season.
Please contact us if you have any questions about the payment options available.
