The decision to not attend the 2015 State basketball hold in Hays Kansas has been made. Yes, I know this is not the news that any of you wanted to hear, nor is it the news I wanted to deliver. As expressed in both the assessment and seasonal basketball handouts already published. This decision is based on three key factors: 1) Funds 2) Transportation 3) Hotel Accommodations.
Efforts are being made to raise more funds as corporate letters continue to be mailed weekly. Coach Regina is exploring which local restaurants we qualify to participate in their charitable giving programs. We will continue to explore additional fundraising opportunities but we will need each of you participate in this activities to help us reach out financial goals.
Transportation and hotel accommodations played an equal role, if not more of a role in this decision. Although, several athletes have decided not to continue with basketball this season. We still do not have enough hotel rooms reserved, nor are we able to locate enough rooms to house our growth.
Several of you may wonder about the $23 participation fee charged for basketball. This fee is just that, a participation fee and will not be refunded. It was not a state registration fee or a meal fee for state. I do not have any plans at this time to enforce a participation fee for all sports. However, sport that include travel or facility fees will have a small participation fee assigned.
I will continue to express my concerns to the state Special Olympics Kansas office regarding how this events has out grown Hays Kansas. A super host of this Special Olympics event, but restructuring this event has to take place.
Food for thought: If the Flyers volunteer based program ends all fundraising activities and we were to become a pay to play program totally funded by participation fees and maintained our current team size. This years’ actual basketball participation fee, including the cost to travel to Hays would have been $188 per athletes.
Athletes: 138 = Total No. Registered: 169
$188 x 169 = $31,772 budget for basket had we attended the state tournament.
