Athletic Fees Eased at Nipmuc

A detailed discussion of a new athletic fee structure and funding for transportation of student athletes to and from sporting events was discussed at the July 19 Mendon Upton Regional School Committee meeting.

School Superintendent Joseph Maruszczak made a recommendation that was agreed to by the school committee that the school district will fund the full cost of transportation for athletics. He said that in making this recommendation, he is thinking about the safety of the student athletes as well as liability. The anticipated transportation costs for next year will be between $45,000 and $50,000.

A proposal was also brought forth by Nipmuc's Athletic Director Bill Leaver for a new "tiered fee" structure for all athletics. Due to the increase in athletic fees this past year, which resulted in a decrease in the number of participants, Leaver has been working on a new plan to reduce costs for students who want to participate in sports. Last year some student athletes were asked to pay close to $600 to play one sport at Nipmuc.

After making small modifications to Leaver's original proposal, it was agreed that the school would have a three tiered fee structure, where the cost to participate in football would be $425 per student, the cost to participate in boys soccer, girls soccer, baseball, softball, boys lacrosse, girls lacrosse, boys basketball, girls basketball, field hockey, and golf would be $375 per student, and the cost to participate in boys and girls outdoor and indoor track, and boys and girls cross country would all be $325 per student. School Committee members expressed their hope that these new fees will help to significantly increase the number of participants in the athletic program. The new fee structure approved by the school committee will be posted on the Nipmuc High School website.

In a related matter, school committee member Michelle Goodwin gave an update to the group on three changes that they are planning for the current policies. One of the changes was a new policy they will put in place that will allow advertisements and signage to be sold to local businesses to be posted at sporting events in order raise additional revenue for the school. The ads would be approved by each of the individual building principal as well as the school committee.
