Gastonia, NC 28052
(Please make checks payable to “St. Michael Sports Committee”)
Parish guidelines require each team to have 2 volunteer coaches that have completed the “Protecting God’s Children” class. Limited coaching volunteers means registration will also be limited and will be on a first come, first served basis. That means anyone who registers beyond the number of kids we can accommodate for each team will be placed on a waiting list. If/when additional volunteer coaches step forward, these kids will be assigned to a team.
Your child’s registration status is NOT considered complete until BOTH the signed registration form AND the registration fee has been received.
All registration fees are refundable if we do not have enough coaches to field a team or if you or your child decides that they do not want to participate.
Cost for Soccer*
Ages 3-8 Ages 9-15

The above fees do NOT include the uniform. The approximate cost of a full uniform for new players is approx. $16 – $40 depending on the age.
* There is a church member family maximum of $80.00. So, if you are a member of St. Michael Church with 2 or more kids playing, the maximum registration fee will be $80.00 (not including any late registration fee, if applicable).
Practices for most teams will begin sometime during mid to late August depending on the coach(es).
The season normally runs until early November with one or two practices and one or two games a week depending on the age group and coach(es).
