A note from our Athletic Director: I have received several emails concerning the cost of basketball for this year, and I wanted to make an effort to be transparent on this topic. This year’s registration fee is comprised of operating costs and a uniform cost. Nearly 70% for the registration is used to pay for gym fees, referee fees, league fees and custodial fees. These costs are unavoidable in order to play basketball. We are asking families to purchase a new uniform this year. While I understand that this would be the second consecutive year for this ask, this decision wasn’t approached lightly or without reason. This year we are making an effort to consolidate suppliers for our uniforms and spirit wear so that we can establish and maintain consistency in school colors and logos in both sports uniforms and school spirit wear. We are hoping that this will create a scale of economy effect for both Spirit Wear and sports uniforms as we move forward and grow.
