payment for participation in a Lightning Soccer program is expected prior to
the start of the season. A player may not participate in any Lightning Soccer
Club practices or games until the registration fee is paid in full unless
arrangements have been made with the LSC Club Administrator --
The Bobby Clark Schlarship Fund was established to help defray the costs to those players and families who otherwise may not be able to participate in Lightning. Since LSC receives many requests and has limited scholarship funds
available, these scholarships (typically in the form of a reduced fee)
are granted to the most qualified applicants based on:
- Financial need (i.e., LSC fees will cause financial hardship)
- Commitment to LSC as the applicant’s primary extracurricular commitment for the season.
Please see the Scholarship Fund page for more information, how to submit a request, and application deadlines.
For those players and families that find it difficult to make one full fee payment by the due date, a Payment Plan may also be arranged in advance. These are no interest, no fee payment plans. Typically, we extend payment plans over a 3 month time frame, 1/3 of the fee each month. We ask that we receive all 3 checks by the payment deadline, with the first check dated to the current date, and then the remaining 2 checks be post-dated to the next two months. For Fall soccer, full payment must be received (and dated) no later than the end of September. For Spring soccer, full payment must be received (and dated) no later than the end of February.
Please email Donna Richardson at
to discuss payment plans.
A player with fees that are past due (over 30
days), and who has not made an attempt to work out a Payment Plan or submitted a Scholarship request by the due date, will be
placed in bad standing with Lightning Soccer Club until such time as the
financial obligation has been resolved. A player in bad standing with LSC may
not be rostered on a team with the league, issued a player pass or participate
in practices and/or games. Additionally, a late fee may be charged for late payments.
Payment issues should not be discussed with coaches. Please contact the LSC Club Administrator with any questions or issues.
