***What do my registration fees cover?  Registration fees cover season coaching fees, practice facility rental fees, showcase entry fees, competition music fees, & MUS administrative fees.

NEW 2022- Cheer Competition fees are no longer a part of registration fees. The competitions we attend will be decided in August after the full list of competitions is released for the year. At that time Parent's will be required to pay all competition registration fees into team accounts. 

  • Team fundraising opportunities will be available & all fundraising money earned will be divided equally among team members and used to offset costs of competition fees!  
Payment Plan Options Available: 
  • Spirit Elite Full Season Teams: NEW 2022 payment plan is similar to a monthly tuition. If you choose the payment plan route you will pay a down payment of $300 upon registration, and then have payments of $150.00/month during the season. The payments will start being automatically pulled from your bank account starting July 15, and will proceed on the 15th of each month with the final monthly payment falling on January 15. The $300 you paid upfront at registration will serve as the payment for your final 2 months of tuition for February & March!

Upon Registration each player will also be responsible for the Volunteer Verification & Assurance Fee of $5.00: Millard United considers the safety of our athletes a serious matter.  This fee helps offset the expenses incurred in the effort of safeguarding & continuing to provide a safe & fun environment for our athletes.
