Well, I'll let you know next week! Our gym used to give us a "team"statement each month in addition to our monthly tuition. The team account statement would be the fees for meets, coaches fees added after meets, practice leos, team leos, warm-ups...anything team related on a month to month basis. This made it easy on my checkbook! Our L4 and L5 team got so large this year because last year was the first time for compulsary levels, they will introduce to us at our team meeting this week the NEW plan for yearly team fees to make it easier for the gym owner. I imagine they will estimate the meet fees and come-up with a price to be paid all at once or maybe quarterly? Seems fair to me for them to want to make it easier I only pray it is a reasonable amount as it is hard to come up with big chunks of $$$ in September (I have 3 kids going to school that need new clothes, shoes, and supplies)when the meets start.
My only complaint about expenses would be that we were told last year that the Comp leo would be good for 2 years and they are now changing it. I can see why, it looks like the girls are wearing granny panties sometime the way the legs are cut. Plus we had a problem with GK not sewing them correctly on the seams and they kept splitting open and had to be sent back several times. And we are also having to get new practice leos too. UGH!
