Mike,

Our team has always been a parent funded team and we have usually 
averaged about $100.00
per team member (we have 7 members on our team).  In addition to costs 
you mentioned, the $700.00
has also included the registration for the State Tournament and all the 
small items such as materials
for presentations, materials to build giant mascots, materials for 
banners, items to trade with other teams,
copying costs, etc.  Sometimes the small things can add up, so allow 
some money for those.

We did build a very basic practice table that only cost about $50.00.  
It simply sits on top
of our dining room table (although is still weighs a ton!!) so there 
are no legs and we have never used lights.
If you want a more complex table, allow more money for that.  This will 
be our fourth year and the basic table
has always worked fine for our team.

As far as snacks, you could have different families donate snacks so 
you don't have to budget for those.

Good luck and let me know if you have other questions.

Subject: [VADCFLL-L] Season costs for FLL

I may be switching from coaching a school-based (PTA-funded) team to
a private (parent-funded) team, and am thus interested in estimating
the total cost. We have NXT kits, but will need to pay for:

- Team registration
- Regional tournament registration
- Challenge kit (table mat and models)
- Materials to build a practice table
- T-shirts
- Snacks
- Anything else I've missed

If anyone has done this exercise and could share their estimates, I'd
appreciate it!

Regards,
Mike Blanpied
