Why We Charge a Coaching Fee when Staying with Friend's Family


While a competitor may travel with a friend's parents, our coaching staff remains responsible for the athlete's supervision, safety, and needs related to the competition. This fee ensures that our staff can adequately oversee all athletes and provide the necessary attention and care, as it is not the responsibility of the friend's parents to monitor other children.


Each of these options is designed to provide flexibility while maintaining a high level of care and service for our athletes. The coaching fee ensures athletes receive dedicated attention to improve their skills and competitive edge. The fees cover the responsibility our coaches take on to ensure athletes are safe, supervised, and focused on their competition.
