12 people verbally committed to training for nationals under coach Sean. Of these Carolyn Erdman, Elisa Rossi, Gustavo Pesce, Jason Zvanut, John Wagner, Natalia Silva, Stephen Akridge, and Tom Brown have put $50 towards nationals registration, to be matched by club funds. On January 9 11 people did the beep fitness test.
We had big changes in income and expenses during 2011. At the beginning of the year we were collecting $5 or $7 per attendance. With the prospect of increasing pool costs we increased this to $8 or $10 on 4/18. In September we changed from paying a $4.50 scrip ticket per attendance to $47/hour and paying for the Monday high school practice. The high schoolers pay for their time using paypal. Then in October we changed to most people paying $72 or $126 per quarter automatically online and $13 for drop ins.
In 2011Q4 we had 12 members paying $126 and 14 members paying $72. Of these all but 5 used the paypal subscription.
We spent a long time estimating costs and expenses with various monthly schemes. Our expected cost was Monday (with high schoolers) $141 and Thursday $118 but actual cost was only $70.5 for Thursday. We estimated income of ~1000/month but thanks to the league and greater attendance from Club Puck we brought in 3248 in Q4.
Other big items:
Bank, paypal fees: 220
Assuming we continue averaging >13 players/practice in Q1 Tom proposes reducing prices 15% starting Q2.
