FEES & WORK COMMITMENTS Program Cost = Registration Fee + Work Commitment
Total: 685$ + 8 Work Credits
Work commitments help benefit the Club in many ways. The funds generated help to purchase new equipment, pay bills and staff. Working these commitments helps us keep our program costs lower for you. They are also a great way for parents to learn more about the Club and what happens down at the boathouse. It’s amazing how many friendships are forged at Bingo!
The other great part of working commitments is the ability to generate money in your Travel Account. Once work commitments are completed, additional fundraising monies go to your travel account. Taking advantage of all opportunities to build up the Travel Account can have an enormous impact on the athlete’s financial ability to fully participate in the competitive season.
