FC Dulles Referral Program- Bring Players to FC Dulles and Save!

FC Dulles is excited to introduce the new Referral Program. You know first-hand how much fun your kids have when they're playing soccer alongside friends and how much more convenient it is for you when there are soccer carpool options with nearby neighbors. With this in mind, and with the goal of growing FC Dulles, we are pleased to introduce a new reward program - THE FC DULLES REFERRAL PROGRAM!

This was created for players/families who bring new players to FC Dulles soccer programs. We have seen how effective spreading our programs through word of mouth advertising has been, and how much it can benefit families and players. Because of that now we want to reward these parents.

If you bring players to FC Dulles and they sign-up, and submit your name in the online referral section when registering, and pay their tuition fees, then you will be eligible for the referral bonus. Rewards will only be processed when the referral pays in full or at least four months if they are on an installment plan.

REFERRAL REWARD AMOUNT:

  1. Applied to any outstanding balances at FC Dulles for the current season.
  2. Any reward balance will be applied to the tuition of the next season* or program with FC Dulles.

*A season for the Travel Academy Program is considered a full seasonal year (i.e. June 2021-June 2022).

If you bring:

  • NEW players to the FC Dulles Travel Academy program: $100/player.
  • NEW players to the FC Dulles ADAP program (U7 & U8): $50/player
  • NEW players to the FC Dulles REC Academy program (Micro, REC 1, REC II, REC III): $25/player.
  • NEW players to the FC Dulles Eaglet Academy: $15/player

IF NEW PLAYER REGISTERS FOR ANY FC DULLES PROGRAMS OR EVALUATIONS WITHOUT MENTIONING YOUR NAME OR YOUR CHILD'S NAME THE FIRST TIME THEY INITIATE CONTACT WITH FC DULLES, YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A REFERRAL BONUS REWARD FOR THAT PLAYER.

Soccer is more fun with friends! It's EASY to refer your friends, neighbors, and classmates! Here are some ideas on how to spread the word:

  1. Work, church, friends, and clubs you already belong to. (i.e. place in the break room, ask your church to post, add to your local community board, pool clubhouse, etc.)
  2. Facebook! - Share on your Facebook page with a small testimonial about why your child loves playing soccer for FC Dulles!
  3. Have your player hand out fliers to their friends in the neighborhood.
  4. Ask your child's teacher if you can put the FC Dulles flier in their class Friday Folder
  5. Day Care
  6. Other sports teams
