2019-2020 Cost Structure
With tryouts approaching, we are frequently asked about the cost of playing for our club. In an effort to be open, communicative and transparent, we will summarize the cost of playing for A5 Gwinnett here on our website. We cover this information in the informational meetings in detail.
Our presented fees are an all-in number. Included are uniforms, tournament registration, coach and player lodging, coaching salaries, gym space, insurance, membership fees, and additional costs associated with running the club. We express the all-in fees as a range for each age group below: a unique cost based on their tournament schedule. For example, the 14-1 team will be on the highest end of the range, where the 14-3 team will be on the lowest end.
The only exception to the presented fees below is if your athlete is on a team that flies to a tournament. The flight costs are a separate number to the all-in fee, and occur on all of our teams 15 and up, with a few exceptions. Please keep in mind that we are the only club in the country to have a group booking arrangement with airlines, ensuring we get the best possible costs for flights, saving families time and money. Additional information about flight costs for specific teams can be found by inquiring through the "contact us" link on the website, or calling into the office.
When reviewing the cost of playing for our club it is important to remember several things:
- Since we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, every nickel that comes in to our club is deployed to the benefit of our members. We have no profit motive.
- We know that it is expensive to play club volleyball. It is important for us to aggressively control costs wherever possible, and to remain cognizant of how the cost of playing for A5 Gwinnett compares to the cost of playing for other local clubs.
- Lastly, it is important to note that many of A5 Gwinnett’s teams train through and compete in the AAU National Championships in June, which is included in the upfront team costs presented herein. This includes approximately 8 weeks of additional training over teams that end the season at SRVA Regionals. These are: every A5 Gwinnett team aged 15s-17s. A few local clubs have begun to imitate us in this regard; just make sure that you are comparing training seasons of similar length when you compare cost from team to team.
