7. Set Fees for Extra-Curricular Activities
Description:  Currently, we charge $50 for sports' activity fee for each sport with a maximum of $300 per family.  With the seasons shortened this year, we are wondering if we should reduce or eliminate the fees this year. It is quite a bit of extra work to collect the fees and then have to reimburse them if the activity is canceled. Conversely, it is also worth noting that gate receipts will be eliminated this year as we will be limited to 50 people in a gym at the same time.  In some instances, this will be players, coaches, and officials only.
