Your $555.00 in fees must be paid in full before our first regular season game of 2022.

We don’t want the cost to play to be a barrier for our players getting out on the field – if you need to set-up a payment plan for fees, please reach out!

Cheque, Cash, Credit (VISA/MC) and etransfer accepted.

Does the Rage supply equipment to play in?

Yes! We do. We require a $500 deposit cheque from you before you can take equipment. Please come prepared with a post-dated cheque to our registration night. No equipment deposit cheque = no equipment

$55 of your player fee is dedicated to our team insurance plan (required to play football).

Rental times/space, team travel costs (bus/team lodging), team training staff (for all games), team “swag” (i.e., game-day clothing for both players and coaches), helmet and team equipment reconditioning/purchasing, jersey replacement, refs and other officials needed for games.
