Families of athletes who participate in each event are required to share equally in the expenses incurred by the coaching staff. The program coordinators and coaches make every effort to keep costs down for families by carpooling, sharing hotel rooms, etc. Coaches expenses include, but are not limited to, mileage, accommodations, coaching time, and meals for competitions, training camps, workshops, etc.
The cost of all coaches’ expenses will be totaled, and equally divided amongst all participating athletes at that event. Coaches expenses will usually be invoiced to you within 2 weeks of an event. If there are events held close together, the Office Administration may wait and bill you after the next event instead. Expenses are required to be paid in full upon receipt of invoice.
Regular, punctual attendance is important if the athlete is to get the benefit of training sessions. This includes summer months. Families are requested to notify the club/coaches, in advance if possible, if an athlete is going to miss a practice.
Drop off and pick up: The athlete must be picked up promptly when class ends. If your child is picked up late, you will be charged a LATE FEE of $1.00 per minute which is payable directly to the coach upon pick up. This also applies to early drop off. All athletes age 13 and under must be dropped off and picked up inside the gym.
The yearly training fees are prorated to include the following:
– Four weeks vacation for the athletes
– All long weekends (unless athletes compete the following weekend)
