Registration- Cycle 2

We are happy to announce that United DFC’s Summer 2020 registration will open at 5pm on August 7th on our website. Register here https://udfc.ca/_registration

Registration for the Summer 2020 programs will be very similar to a normal season You will go to our Demosphere page on our website and register as per usual. Any credits you family has should show up in Demosphere.
 

As part of your registration, you will choose either 1,2 or 3 practices per week. Above, we have included a summer practice schedule which included the location, time, coach and style of practice. These will be included in drop down menus during registration. The number of practices & their styles were selected based on your feedback from the member surveys.

 

Sessions

Each practice is limited to a maximum of 9 players and is on a first come, first serve basis.So make sure you register as soon as possible to get the spots you want. If there is a large demand for a particular style of session and we are full, we will try to be flexible and add more. However, this may not be possible in some cases. There must be 7 players registered for a session to run. If there are less than that we will look to combine groups or may cancel that group (with a refund).

 
For the summer 2020, UDFC we will not be accepting in-person registration. So you will need to register through your Demosphere account using the link above. If you have issues, please call the office at 902-404-8332.
 
Players who owe fees from a previous season must pay those outstanding fees before they will be able to register for the current season. If you have questions or concerns about previous season payments, please contact Deborah Mert at deborahm@udfc.ca.
 
As part of the registration process, parents or guardians must complete the COVID-19 liability waiver. This will be a part of the registration form.
 
You will be required to enter your child's health card number.

Registration for our Summer 2020 Cycle #2 program will close at 12 noon on Thursday, August  12

Costs

The club has worked very hard to try to bring the cost per session down as much as possible. There are a number of factors that have needed to be considered, but we are happy to announce that our fees will be $13.50 per session for the first 4 week cycle.
 
When you choose the number of sessions you want per week, these sessions will include all 4 weeks of the first cycle. So if you pick two sessions per week, then you will be paying for 8 in total (2 sessions per week x 4 weeks)
  • 1 Session Per Week - 13.50 x 1 (session per week) x 4 (number of weeks) = $54 total
  • 2 Sessions Per Week - 13.50 x 2 (sessions per week) x 4 (number of weeks) = $108 total
  • 3 Sessions Per Week- 13.50 x 3 (sessions per week) x 4 (number of weeks) = $162 total

Due to the costs of getting the programs up and running, the fees are non-refundable. Rained out sessions will be replaced with an online virtual session in which players can participate at home.

We will be starting practices the week of August 17th, with that Monday being the first day.
