Fees should not be deterrent to participation
Winter sports registration at Siuslaw High School and Middle School are now open and parents are reminded of a program designed to offset the cost of participation. Fees to participate at the high school are $100; at the middle school they are $75.
But, the Ian Foster Fund, administered by the Siuslaw Athletic Booster Club can pay the majority of that for students who need it. Booster Club president Gina Castro-Brandt said the participation fee should not prevent students from being part of Siuslaw athletics. The Ian Foster Scholarships pay $75 of the high school fee and $40 of the middle school fee.
Coaches and school offices have information on how to apply.
