Also are there not expenses that are communal such as field maintenance, goals, nets, field paint, referees, lights, PA systems, score boards, etc?

There was a tournament darn near every weekend it seemed. The team bought lunch and snacks for the players. I think over the years we experienced about every darn fund-raiser in the world.

The parents asked their business acquaintances to put ads in our program book. Everyone has businesses they patronize. It could be your auto mechanic, your insurance agent, etc. If you are a good customer, it is hard for them to refuse you. Also, since it is real advertising, they get to deduct the expense on their taxes. This worked so well, that the parents never had to pay anything out of their own pockets to support the organization. We had plenty of expenses that were not covered by the school board, such as uniforms and travel expenses. The only things we had to sell were concert tickets and there was no requirement. Other than parents and grandparents, the tickets were almost impossible to sell anyway.
