Training Cost

New York Red Bulls trainers can be scheduled based on a seasonal rate.  The minimum commitment to schedule a trainer for one season is 180 hours over a ten (10) week period.  The seasonal rate is based on the total volume of hours committed over that ten (10) week season. The table below outlines pricing at each volume level.


Number of Trainers Seasonal Hours Hourly Rates Total Season Cost
0.5 30 to 179 $105 TBD
1 180 $97 $17,460
2 360 $92 $33,120
3  540 $87 $46,980
5 900 $85 $76,500


  • Additional hours completed by allocated trainers above 180 hours will be billed based on the hourly rate. For Example, if 1 trainer is contracted at 180 hours and they complete 200 hours over the 10 week season, the additional 20 hours will be billed at $97 per hour.  
  • Organizations that wish to schedule less than 180 hours per season can do so based on availability and are placed on an initial standby list. These hours are billed at $105 per hour and must be scheduled in a minimum of 3 hour blocks per day.



Game Day Coaching

Billed at the game duration plus 30 additional minutes. For example, a 60 minute game would be billed at 90 minutes of coaching time. Where agreed and scheduled, the trainer will conduct the warm-up, half-time team talk and post-game debrief.

Tournament Billing

Tournament attendance is billed at the same rate as game day coaching: game duration plus 30 additional minutes. Attendance at a tournament requires a minimum commitment of 3 hours per day. If the trainer is required to stay overnight an additional 2 hours per night are billed. For out of region tournaments the club is responsible for any accommodation costs and round trip travel expenses in excess of 100 miles from the home club base. Travel mileage is billed at $0.20 per mile.
