Club Costs

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Participating in any club sport requires a financial commitment.  Rockwood Thunder believes individual team costs should be independent of other teams in the club to allow for each team to choose their preferred season schedule.  As a result, total costs will vary by team based on several factors, including total number of players on a team, number of tournaments played both locally and out of town, whether or not a team participates in fundraising opportunities, size of team coaching staff, etc.  

Average total ​costs per player range from $1,200-$2,350 per season.

To understand how the range of $1,200-$2,350 is determined, see below for a breakdown of the various costs associated with playing in Rockwood Thunder.  Several different payment options are available​ at NO additional charge.
