Membership and Subscriptions Policy

  • All players wishing to train or play with Chesham United Youth Football Club must first register their membership through the club’s registration system, “LoveAdmin”. Registration is required annually in advance of the start of the season. Players not registered through Love Admin are not accepted members of the club and are not covered under liability insurance.
  • Registration in advance is required for players who are ‘trying out’ the club and may not yet have committed to membership. No subs are due for players training with the club during a try-out period, however, coaches will not allow players to train or play with their age group if they have not registered with Love Admin.
  • Player registration records should be kept up to date within Love Admin by parents / carers with all the necessary information required.
  • New players should decide within one month of registration whether they wish to join the club. Full membership subs will be due at this point, to cover the full season from when the player registered with CUYFC. New players will receive kit and a training top once they have committed to the club and paid their first subs.

Full season subs

The following table sets out the cost of membership subs for the first member of a household, and discounted rates for any subsequent players from the same household:

OPTION 1
Up-front payment
OPTION 2
Payment by instalments

Full season – first child

£165 due by 1st Sept

(£25 sign-on plus £140 membership

£25 sign-on and £20 first instalment by 1st September,
followed by 6 monthly instalments of £20.
These will start a month after the first instalment.

Full season – second child

£110 due by 1st Sept

(£10 sign-on plus £100 membership)

£10 sign-on and £20 first instalment by 1st September,
followed by 4 monthly instalments of £20.
These will start a month after the first instalment.

Full season – third child

£50 due by 1st Sept

(£10 sign-on plus £40 membership)

£10 sign-on and £20 first instalment by 1st September,
followed by 1 monthly instalment of £20.
This will be taken a month after the first instalment.

The club incurs significant cost in preparation for a new season, buying playing kit and training equipment and entering into commitments to pay for training and match pitches. All players must therefore either be fully paid up for the season, or have set up automatic instalments for all payments, by the 1st September.

  • New playing kit/ training tops will not be issued to players who have not paid subs
  • Players who have not paid subs will not be eligible to play in matches
  • The club reserves the right to refuse training and cancel the registration of any member who has not paid subs (or entered into the instalment plan) by 31st October

Partial season subs

Some players join the club part way through the season. The club offers reduced rates for players in this situation in line with the table below.

Joining date:
FIRST CHILD
SECOND CHILD
THIRD CHILD

Season start – Dec 31st

£165 (includes kit and training top)

£110 (includes kit and training top)

£50 (includes kit and training top)

Jan 1st – Easter

£110 (includes kit and training top)

£80 (includes kit and training top)

£50 (includes kit and training top)

Easter – end of season

£50 (can be waived if no kit required)

£50 (can be waived if no kit required)

£50 (can be waived if no kit required)

These rates are based on the need to provide kit and equipment for players at whatever stage in the season they join the club. (Note that new players will need both a kit and a training top, whereas regular members of the club receive one or the other each season.) The third child rate does not reduce through the season based on the significant discount already provided to third children and the need still to provide them with kit. Subs can be waived for all players joining after Easter if no new kit is required.

Hardship

The club may be able to help a limited number of players whose families are in genuine financial hardship, through relevant grants or the club’s own Development Fund. Such families should approach the club’s Welfare Officer, Ben Toettcher.
