NFCA To Increase Membership Fees on September 1, 2014
LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Because of an increased cost of doing business, it was determined that college member coaching categories would experience a fee increase effective September 1, 2014. Travel ball and high school fees will remain at $70.
“The last time we had a fee increase was in 2007, and in those last seven years, we have seen large increases in postage, insurance, fuel and numerous other categories that have impacted our day-to-day operations,” said Lacy Lee Baker, NFCA Executive Director. “In order for us to continue to deliver quality products and services, these increases are necessary, and we hope our college membership will understand.”
Previous to 2007, membership fees were increased about every five years during the 30-year-history of the organization.
The changes that will go into effect September 1, 2014, are:
• Division I head coaches will increase from $160 to $190
• Divisions II and III head coaches will increase from $110 to $130
• NAIA and Junior College head coaches will increase from $70 to $85
• Associate head coaches will pay the same amount as the head coach
• Assistants at all college categories, which will specifically be identified as pitching, hitting, all, will increase from $70 to $85
In addition, three categories of assistant coaches have been added to the college membership offerings at the lower cost level of $70: Volunteer Assistant, Director of Operations and Student Assistant (either grad or undergraduate).
Outside of the college ranks, another category of Youth Coach also has been added for those coaches who do not fit in the Travel Ball or High School categories. Types of “Other Youth Coach” are Recreational Only, Middle School, and Junior Varsity and those fees will be $70.
And finally, those who wish to pay for a three-year multiyear membership offered at a 10 percent discount will be able to do so starting September 1.
