Where do my event registration fees go?
When you pay for an event, your money is allocated to a couple different things.
The IFSA collects $2-$8 per athlete depending on the level of competition. We use that money towards producing guidelines and event documents, creating rules, maintaining a ranking system, certifying judges and coaches, managing registration and an event calendar of over 80 stops, and compensating our two part-time employees.
Event Hosts collect the rest of the registration fees to pay judges, employees, ski patrol, event staff, awards and swag, prize money for FWQ Adult events and offer discounted lift tickets.
