The value in-kind or soft benefits component of a new schedule of BC Athletics Day of Event membership fee sharing would apply and have benefit for both the Sanctioned Event and BC Athletics/Divisions.
The in-kind benefits to Club/Event Organizing Committee and BC Athletics (the Divisions of) from sanctioned events are to be linked to the Day of Event Membership fee retained by the sanctioned event and that returned to BC Athletics. The guiding principles are:
The following will developed and linked to the steps in the new Fee Sharing Schedule.
For the sanctioned events the benefits, financial and in-kind benefits (in addition to the standard benefits already provided) include and in no particular order:
These value-in-kind benefits will be linked in a progressive format to provide more to the event as the Day of Event Membership participation increases and as a result more of the Day of Event membership revenue is retained by the Club/Event Organizing Committee.
For BC Athletics/Divisions of the value-in-kind benefits to be linked to the steps in the new Fee Sharing Schedule include and in no particular order:
These value-in-kind benefits will be linked in a progressive format to provide more exposure to BC Athletics/Divisions in the event as the Day of Event Membership participation increases and as a result less Day of Event membership revenue per person is returned to BC Athletics.
The materials referenced in the above value-in-kind benefits would be a responsibility of the association.

BC Athletics is creating a "School Page" on the website. The intention is to get as much school (both Elementary and High School) related information as possible up on the site in one area for teachers and school coaches to access. Any clubs putting on events with school participation should get links to their meet information in as quickly as possible. The same goes for any clinics or camps that may be geared towards school athletes. If you have something you feel would be suitable please forward it to Sam Collier at email@example.com.
