: : : : : : $10 or $12 for admission and $5 parking if you go to the games at Damien. This is absolutely ridiculous. I agree there are some good teams and games but to charge this much for high school is a joke.Many parents and friends want to see the games but can't fork out this much over the course of 4 games.Charging for parking is ridiculous.
: : : : : : Some of the teams playing there should consider playing in the Covina Christmas Tourney or the Nogales Tourney. More folks could afford the $5.00 for the entire day fee and no charge for parking.
: : : : : : Just my thoughts what do you all think?
: : : : : : Shut up !
: : : : You can't tell parents "Don't go." But it's on the parents to tell their coaches early on that they don't want to do the Damien tournament because it's too expensive. Charging for parkings is not right & the addmission is too high.
: : : Who cares what a parent has to say? Some of them should be muzzled before they're allowed to enter the gym.
: : Hopefully some of these coaches put their teams in other tournaments next season. Especially over Christmas it should be priced so the entire family can go out and enjoy without being robbed for parking and admission. I heard LeDuc was ripping people off at the snack bar too.
: I agree that $10-$15 is a little pricey for a tournament, but it is a fundraiser. The money goes into the program, not the coaches pockets. If you think it's too much, don't go. Plain and simple.
Most single varsity games during a season range from $5 to $8 from what I've seen. $10-$15 for multiple games is not unreasonable considering the draw of the teams at a tournament like this.
I understand that parents might just want to see their kids play and have little to no interest in the other game so it is a dilemma. Maybe somebody creative can think of a way to charge parents less, provided they don't stick around the whole day.
