2025 CLUB DUES

TEAM TRAVEL | Premier teams participate in team travel for all away trips (excluding Sandusky which is not considered a team travel event). Players and coaches depart from Premier the evening prior to the tournament, stay together in a hotel, and return to Premier the evening of the last day of play (players do have the option to ride home with parents after all the Premier teams are done competing). Team travel allows parents the convenience of not attending away events, or arriving the day of play. Parents are welcome to arrange to stay at the team hotel or their own lodging. The cost for hotels, charter bus, bus parking & team meeting room is divided by the total number of athletes traveling on each trip, with payment due 2 weeks prior to a trip. For budget purposes, the average cost of team travel is approximately $150 per competition date. So, for example, a 2-day tourney in Cleveland is approx. $300 per player.
