Meet Fees

When we are accepted into a meet, we run billing for the meet and send the host our payment.  Once we run billing you receive an itemized invoice for the meet.  If your invoice shows a balance due, you must pay that day for the meet.  If you keep a card on file, it will be automatically charged.

Any questions, call or write me at 614.288.7003 or  Come join us on deck and help us  run the best meets so our kids can get their best times, (and our families can get to the next thing on time.) Parents that officiate will have their booster fundraising req…
