At the January 13, 2002 meeting of the Board of Directors for NYSWYSA, the following motions were made and approved for players and families involved in the Olympic Development Program for the 2001-2002 seasonal years. Before a sibling discount can be verified, all rosters must be turned in and all payments received. Once all are in, the State will verify siblings and mail rebates to the families eligible for this benefit.
A. For parents having more than one child in ODP, a 10% discount on both the indoor and outdoor training fee will be applied to each child. If one child does not make the outdoor pool then the discount no longer applies; that is, if only one child remains in the program the discount is no longer available. For example, if two or more siblings are in indoor training, each sibling receives a 10% discount off the indoor training fee ($210 less 10% ($21) = $189 per player). If one child fails to make the outdoor (or State Pool) pool, there is no other sibling remaining thus, the 10% discount is not valid. However, if both siblings make the State Pool, then each sibling receives a 10% discount off the outdoor training fee. NO discounts apply for Region I events (Tournament and Camp).
B. Players who are in the current Region I Pool for their age group will have their indoor training fee refunded if they make the State Pool. That is, regional players have to pay the indoor fee up front like all other players. If they make the current year State Pool (announced in April) they will be refunded the indoor fee, or they can have it applied toward the outdoor training fee.
