The Kingston Grenadiers Football Club is a registered non-profit organization. Season fees are subsidized by fundraising efforts by board members, parents and coach volunteers. The season fees are specifically calculated for an individual player, and as a matter of policy, we feel it is unfair for players and their families to pay inflated fees in order to subsidize other players. Season fees are due at the time of registration and can be paid by credit/debit card (merchant processing fee applies) or by e-transfer. We offer a multi-player family discount, families with two or more players automatically receive a 20% discount off their registration fees
Unless payment arrangements have been confirmed with the Club president, players with outstanding accounts will not be able to participate in Club activities. Any registrant who requires a fee assist program will have a spot reserved until confirmation of sponsorship has occurred. If you require financial support to participate:
COMMUNICATIONS - PLAYERS & PARENTS. Once you have registered, you will receive an invitation to join the Team’s Teamlinkt app. This is our primary ways of communicating with parents and players and get important information to you quickly when it matters (field changes, weather cancellations etc.). From the app, Players will be able to message and chat with team members and coaches directly. For parents, any schedule and roster data that is loaded by the Club will be available to you real time. As we get more familiar with this new tool, we will be using it for different things including photo sharing, polls, live game updates and video streams.
ATTENDANCE. Attendance is mandatory for all team scheduled activities (meetings, practice and games). If you need to be excused, we expect that players notify the coaches and team managers through the app and send a private message with the reason for the absence. Attendance is tracked and will factor into depth charts.
DEPOSITS. Equipment Deposits are required for all players. Equipment provided by Kingston Grenadiers includes a practice jersey, helmet, shoulder pads and knee pads. A $800 deposit is required at the time of pick up by post-dated cheque (Date July 1st 2024) or by completing a credit card PAD form. Equipment deposit will be forfeited if equipment is not returned at the end of the season or when requested by the club.
Volunteer Commitment is required for all Grenadiers families to enhance the game day experience. As such family will be expected to contribute in some way, whether by volunteering for bingo, game day 50/50 draws, canteen hours, gate ticket taker, clean up days, expertise in your professional life – are you photographer, videographer, graphic artist, chef or providing other support on game days. The Volunteer Coordinator records the volunteer hours completed by the parent, a family member, friend (over the age of 16) or the player.
