There are various fees associated with competitions which are not covered by the DSC. Below are some fees that you may incur by participating in the competition.
- Dress/ costume
- Music Editing
- Event registration fee which is paid directly by skater family to the host Club. Competition fees are approximately $100.
- Hotel or accommodation expense, depending upon location of the event.
