Program Costs –
We continue to receive questions about program payment.  And we understand because, due to many uncertainties, we are implementing a new payment structure program for this indoor season.  As in the past, one free try-it-out practice is allowed before registration payment is required.  ALL participants in September will pay $20.  If continuing – or when first attending or joining in either October, November, December, January, or February – the “Registration Joiner Fee” of $100 is due for that month and covers all activities AND provides all program “General Amenities”(see below for details).  Participation in additional months has a separate fee of $20 each for November, December, January and February that must be paid at the first practice attended that month.  Thus, the maximum amount that would be paid during the entire Indoor season (from September through February) would be $200.
Here is an example –
1 –  First attend in November – pay the Registration Joiner Fee of $100 and receive all program amenities.  Return in December – pay $20. Return in January – pay $20.  Don’t attend in February – you owe nothing.  Total amount paid = $140.
