Furman Email and Registration - Posted/Updated Date: June 17, 2016 6:43 pm   By: Danny Marcengill

Update—  06/17/2016

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.

Hello Oconee United Parents and Players,

  • Be on the lookout for an invitation and email from our host club Furman United Soccer Club.  Our payments are broken into 2 parts, the first $225 goes directly to Furman and this covers our enrollment into the SCYSA Select league, pays the referees, insurance and game fees.  The second part of our fees is $400.00 and that money goes to pay our facility cost, coaching payments, scholarship, uniforms, and the basic tournament fees.  
  • ALL PLAYERS NEED TO REGISTER WITH FURMAN!  
  • Players should be able to opt out of making a payment at the time of registration on the www.furmanunited.com registration, (you might have to pick, payment by check) please do this only if you are applying for a scholarship, you are on the special bi-weekly payment plan, or you have made a payment directly with OUSA.  Speaking of scholarships, we will be reviewing those at our July board meeting, so if you are in need of assistance, you need to get your paperwork in.  All OUSA forms are available under the forms tab on this page.  Thanks for being part of our program and we look forward to seeing you at the Summer Sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the older guys and Saturdays for the younger players!  Remember the Summer Sessions are open, so invite your soccer friends.
