Tuition & Fundraising

All members of the competitive team are required to have a year-long BLAST membership ($80 student/$120 non-student). In addition, team members are required to pay a coaching fee. The coaching fee for the beginner class will be waived fall quarter, and $60 for each subsequent quarter. Members are also required to complete three hours of fundraising per quarter. Fundraising events include completing Thank-a-Thon, flyering for fundraising events, going to other general BLAST events, etc. If a team member fails to complete the full fundraising requirement, they will be penalized on a graded scale. The fine will be assessed with the next quarter’s tuition. If the team member fails to pay the fine, they will not be permitted in the class.
