Furman will break the payment into 2 payments, $125.00 now and $100.00 in early August. OUSA also has a bill due in August of $100.00 so folks are falling behind.

You guys should be getting invitations VIA EMAIL AND/OR PHONE CALL from FUSC/Oconee United, I was incorrect in saying that you would be able to opt out of the payment. I will have to manually send payment information to FUSC for the players who have already made a payment or part of a payment, or the players is applying for payment assistance to clear your accounts. THE EASY THING TO DO IS MAKE YOUR FIRST TWO PAYMENTS DIRECTLY TO FURMAN AND GET THEM OUT OF THE WAY, RIGHT AWAY. FUSC /OUSA WILL ALSO BE COLLECTING BIRTH CERTIFICATES AND PHOTOS OF NEW TO OUSA PLAYERS. All players should be gathering and sending that information to Furman as soon as possible.
