That does sound expensive, even legacy nationals are only £40! And I think they have discounts this year on top... what are the others charging for the big comps/ nationals? Is it public??

Are you sure your coach just isn't charging you £50?

£50 per person for 2.30 on the floor it’s getting ridiculous. Never mind a crossover

You are being charged an admin fee on top by your program. It's not £50 to enter under early bird (which i'm assuming your program is doing if they collect comp fees months in advance)

£4 admin fee is reasonable.

Coaches spend hours inputting athletes data into EP registration websites which they cant just copy and paste.

They also spend hours sorting out wristbands and comp tickets.

They shouldn't be expected to do this for free like you wouldn't expect them to spend 2 hours coaching you for free.

Personally I think Jamfest is ridiculous! Comp fees have always been higher.
But then on another note we all want bigger arenas and bigger productions. I think we forget that the venues put their costs up every year so presumably why the eps have to also.
Better judges requires more expenses, better trophies/banners/medals/staging/lighting/staffing etc etc list goes on and it all adds up.
Comp fees have to cover these costs so it’s kind of acceptable really.
It’s business after all.

I think £4 admin fee per athlete is a bit steep if you think a program with 100 athletes is making £400 for a bit of typing and I’d bet there’s also an admin fee for parents tickets which could be another £800.
Over £1000 in admin fees? And the club charging £50 is making £11 per athlete.
Cheer is expensive enough.

@post12, it isn't just 'a bit of typing'

Speak to any coach and they will tell you how many hours they spend inputting the data required and how frustrating it is to do it on inadequate systems.

Jamfest ontime entry was £52 this year with £30 crossovers! Absolute joke!

I would find another team if you are unhappy. We only paid £39 for Bournemouth as that is what they ask for to compete there.

Hi, my university is setting up a cheerleading team and is looking for a supplier of uniforms. Any suggestions on quality, affordable stockists that would make custom uniforms and deliver to Ireland. Thanks in advance!

I do feel that stacked teams are grossly unfair, it's hard for EPs to enforce without some sort of registration system though. If the teams are competing at the same event then it's easy to spot if an athlete was on the mat in another level. If they did L1 at a comp one week and then went to a different EP 2 weeks later with a L5 team then how do you police that? It's impossible without an ID System in place. You have to trust the integrity of the club and unfortunately some are just trophy hunting. Maybe a 10% rule in the same discipline as above.

Thanks glad to know it happens everywhere! But it’s soul destroying watching kids tear kids down thanks to their parents unlike for you or being stuck up! It’s the latter in this case!
