The standard fee schedule is as follows:
- The initial deposit is due at registration.
- 6 equal installments will be due on the 15th of each month (may vary based on registration date).
- The final installment is due on Dec. 15th.
*Girls dual rostering on both a co-ed team and a Lady Hawks team will register with a co-ed team at sign-up and will receive a pro-rated offer link for registration of the second team once confirmed.
Note: If the payment plan is not adhered to, the player will not be allowed to participate in any SIIH events, practices, or games until payments are made current
