The Fond du Lac Phoenix Select League represents all select teams playing in the Southeastern Classic League and WYSA State League. These pages have been developed as a resource for those interested in participating in this competitive travel league. Various information for manages, coaches, players, and parents about the Phoenix Select Soccer Teams will be posted along with some club and district guidelines.

The Fond du Lac Soccer Association understands that it can be expensive to play travel soccer. Fond du Lac remains one of the lowest cost clubs in the region. Additionally, we want to be transparent as to the cost of the entire season vs asking for money along the way. We have developed an "all inclusive" pricing for participating in soccer over the course of the year (August-July). We aim to keep this as affordable for parents as possible but every year costs rise including team fees and player fees we pay the state, referee costs, tournament costs, cost of coaching licensing, camps and indoor training space, and more.
The 2020/2021 fees for U10-19 are staggered based on Age Group. Multi-month payment plans are available when you register.
Included in that price is:
If any parent would like to request for information on the breakdown of the fees you can contact Chad Collett at firstname.lastname@example.org and I would be happy to share the details that go into each age group fee.
Uniforms: The Fond du Lac Soccer Association wears an Adidas uniform from Soccer.com. A base kit will cost approx $100. You can view the uniform on the Fondy Phoenix ordering page. Click on "Club Kit" to view the full uniform which will consist of a red jersey, white jersey, black jersey, black shorts, and black socks.
Fundraisers and Volunteer Deposit: This year we are asking that all players participate in our SNAP Fundraiser to raise funds for our training programs during the summer and winter months - it is not mandatory but highly encouraged. In addition we ask for a $30 volunteer buyout deposit per player. If you wish to volunteer at least 2 hours during FC Green Bay Tournament, you will receive your deposit back after the tournament in the form of a credit to your account.

Age Group: U10 thru U19 Boys and Girls
Offered: Fall (8-10 Weeks) and Spring (8-10 Weeks)
Starting at the U10 age group (and older), Fondy Phoenix Club teams play against teams from other clubs in the region and are a part of the Southeastern Soccer District Classic League or the Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association State League. Travel to games (8-10 each season) are required with half of the games scheduled here at the Fond du Lac soccer complex. Game are played on Saturdays and/or Sundays.
Select teams for boys and girls at the U10 and older levels are formed by a tryout process. Not everyone who tries out is guaranteed a spot on a Fondy Phoenix Club team, though we will make every effort to place as many players as possible on appropriate teams based on skill level (including contacting other clubs if there are not enough spots in a particular age group). Tryouts are held each year, in mid June. Teams are formed each year, and new players are always welcome to try out. If you are not currently on an Fondy Phoenix Select team or move to the area in mid-season, please contact the Club and we will try our best to find you an appropriate spot.
When determining the age group for a season, the year the season ends should be used for determining the birth year. Also note that the format “U followed by age” really means that age and younger. For example, U8 should be read as 8 and younger.
Teams in the Fond du Lac select program will face many challenges in the upcoming year. To meet these challenges and enhance the spirit of teamwork, each Travel team is dependent upon their respective teammates and parents. Both are required to fulfill their obligations regarding practice, games, potential fundraisers and other necessary duties involved in the participation of this program. It is unreasonable to expect our players to be fully committed and to take their roles seriously if the parents are not contributing 100% as well.
This shall serve as a guideline of expectations, for each family, that are financial and performance based. It is intended to render advanced notice of the obligations and commitments to team parents and players. Understanding these obligations and commitments is imperative. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. If everyone adheres to the expectations listed below, our program will run more efficiently and fairly for everyone involved. Please read and understand each item.
