Tournament Fee collections?
Question to you managers/coaches out there that are not sponsored, how do you handle paying the fees for the tournaments? Do you make a one time collection or 3 times per year or do you collect per tournament. Just a throught how others take care of that little headache. thanks Bob

What I see a lot is coaches finding out how many tournaments will be played and collecting at the start of the season.
Reason for this??? It promotes buy-in on players part and saves a lot of hassle later on.

I'm not a coach (fortunately), but what Crusher says makes a lot of sense. Too many times you seem to come up short a key player or two for a crucial tournament. Maybe a little financial commitment would make them think twice about skipping for casual reasons.

Robert-for years we payed as we played. I always came up short and was the subsidser for those who didn't pay. The last three years I have charged up front. Now all of my players put in $500.00 at the first team meeting. This gives me an operating budget and I don't have to pay out of pocket for expenses. Next season I am going to require money be payed before anyone plays and only those who pay will participate.
