Participating in any club sport requires a financial commitment. Rockwood Thunder believes individual team costs should be independent of other teams in the club to allow for each team to choose their preferred season schedule. As a result, total costs will vary by team based on several factors, including total number of players on a team, number of tournaments played both locally and out of town, whether or not a team participates in fundraising opportunities, size of team coaching staff, etc.
Average total costs per player range from $1,200-$3,000 per season.
To understand how the range of $1,200-$3,000 is determined, see below for a breakdown of the various costs associated with playing in Rockwood Thunder. Several different payment options are available at NO additional charge.Club Fees U11-U18 Teams
