As for my daughter, she is playing throught the YMCA and the only cost for playing is the normal expences. (ball,cleats,shin guards, etc....)
However, some leagues you try to get into make you pay for expensive unis and such.
What expense are you talking about particularly?

My kids play for free all the time in our front yard, or when we visit the park. But if you're going to have organized teams with uniforms and referrees and leagues, it's going to cost SOMEBODY some money.

i myself play for a travelling leage and pay alot more than the nominal fees for fields and such that youth leagues pay... my team has to pay a trainer to come out, the coach, rent hotel rooms at tournaments, and pay to enter tournaments as well... so when i look at the fees charged by the league to help cover their costs i laugh because its going to a good cause and is letting kids have fun in a safe environment doing something they enjoy.

However, most intramural soccer programs are very reasonbly priced for participants and many of them will waive any fees involved for a family which is financially stressed.
