Once the tryout phase is completed and you are notified that your daughter has been selected for the Varsity or JV team, we will collect the athletic registration and equipment fee during registration day.  The fees for the 2022 WRHS Softball season have been set as followed:

 

  • Athletic Fee – $70 ($40 if they have already played another sport) – This fee is per player. This is the athletic fee for Pasco County Schools, and it will cover the cost of the school hosting the team and other administrative expenses to include: players’ insurance, bus transportation and utilities. This fee is paid online through Rycor system in the parent portal.

 

  • Equipment Fee – $250 – For 1st year JV and/or Varsity players or $150 for returning JV and/or Varsity players. This fee is per player. This fee will cover equipment order (i.e. socks, helmets, hoodies, compression shirts, and bat bag).  WRHS will provide uniforms to include: jerseys, pants and belts. Players provide their own bat and glove. This fee will go to WRHS Athletics Boosters account for softball use. Cash or check made payable to WRHS Athletic Boosters

Traveling

Players will be provided with bus transportation to and from away games. Families are responsible for all other travel expenses to include: transportation, gas, and food, among others.

 

Fundraisers

Fundraisers are a critical component of High School Softball. We will conduct a variety of fundraisers throughout the season in order to meet some budget requirements and/or order new equipment for the team. We will require full commitment from players and parents to participate in fundraisers during their tenure with the team. Fundraisers will offer valuable lessons for these young girls. They will learn to collaborate and work together to achieve a common goal.  We believe this is one of the most powerful lessons in team sports, and the coaching staff will encourage and expect full participation.
