Payment plans may be available on request.
The club also offers generous discounts to coaches, team managers and those serving important club roles like committee members.
What do the fees pay for?
Although KUSC runs entirely on volunteers, the club fee covers the overall running costs of the club including training and game day balls, training equipment, team kits, preseason and season ground rental and light use, coach training programs, team photos, awards and presentation day, and administration and expenses needed to keep well over 300 kids playing soccer.
What day do we play matches?
Miniroos - U8, U9, U10 and U11 - play on Sunday
Junior Teams - U12, U13, U14, U15, U16, U17 - play on Sunday
Senior Mens Teams play on Saturday
What time do we play matches?
Times can vary depending on which club we are playing against and by what age group your team plays in! A general rule will be that the younger teams play earlier, but this is not set in stone and each club can set their own kick off times! The set times can only be used as a guideline as clubs with limited facilities may require changes in kick off times.
What days does my team have training on?
Training days will be set by the Club & the Coach of your team based on coach & training facility availability. You will be advised of further details once teams and training times have been set. Pre-season sessions will commence in mid to late February (depending on available facilities and coaches).
What do I wear to training?
You must wear shin pads at all times when you get to training. During the season you will also be required to wear soccer boots & your training top. Your drink bottles are recommended as the canteen is not always open for business at the venues.
How do I get my playing uniform?
Once teams have been selected and players are paid up and registered, we will commence the uniform handout. This will be distributed in April at our intraclub gala day (TBA). No earlier!
How does Knox United select their coaches & is it possible that I need to pay extra for an external coach?
