In the chart below you will see the breakdown of cost for travel team participants. We are a nonprofit organization and are only passing along the costs we incur from tournament entry fees, rental fees, equipment fees and the cost of paying our coaches for winter clinics and travel league. Our expectation is to utilize parent volunteer coaches for the fall. We will hire paid coaches for winter clinic, spring league and summer season, but will still need parent volunteers to help with practice, keeping score, organizing team information, etc.

Below you will find (1) what is charged per event, (2) what non-travel members will pay per event, (3) what games and practices are included and (4) what the cost breaks down per hour.
