: : : : : : : I can't be the only parent with multiple boys hooping in spring/summer/ and fall leagues at local HS that is wondering why are they charging $5 per person to support your athlete? It use to be free, now I know times have changed but for a family of 4 $5 each is outrageous? Why not be fair and max out at $10 per family or charge $2/$3 per person. I actually had to miss some games just because the fees are too ridiculous.
: : : : : : : Please chime in with some direct knowledge....things other than gym and ref fees because we pay for those fees when our HS teams pay "league fees". Thank You

: : : : : : That is an interesting idea to charge $10max per family.

: : : : : Could get interesting if Shawn Kemp shows up at a game

: : : : Yeah it's obviously a money maker for the hosting high schools.

: : : We host tournaments and charge 5 for adults, 3 for kids. Its our biggest fundraiser and we really do appreciate other schools coming and helping us out because we are a low income community and the money goes to buying all the equipment and gear that most schools and players take for granted.

: : During the off-season, we charge $3 per entry. Most days, you get to see two (2) games at least in spring & fall. This past summer, we had teams play two games per day at least once per week. Our snack bar is our best asset! Our booster club moms rock!!! Without them, nothing of what we do happens. At our school, this is our major fundraiser. Not all our parents can afford to pay for the spirit packs etc. Just tryna make it happen and keep pace with the bigger/better programs. It is our goal to keep our guys feeling good about representing their program.
: I just paid $12 at the MAPS for one person

:There is a LAUSD high school in my neighborhood who held a long time summer tourney. They stopped having it this year because LAUSD charges them for using the gym "out of season". I was told it was gonna be $1800.00 for the 6 days. Wasn't worth having it. Gotta pay those school board raises somehow!
