Athletics at ISH is financed in large part by the school. Each student-athlete pays a “User Fee” to help offset costs. This user fee is the same per level no matter the sport. The fees charged is a contribution towards facility hire, coaches, referees, local travel within Zuid Holland, kit, ISST membership, tournament entry fees and other elements of the sports department.
The competitive programme: The fees, to be apart of an ISH Silverbacks Team, depends on the level and where the team travel to during the season and where the post-season tournament is taking place. The cost for each team and season is:
- Varsity Team = €125
- Junior Varsity (JV) = €105
- U14 & U12 Teams = €70
€40 is charged for a team top and warm up shirt. This is optional and parents/guardians must inform the Athletic Director at the beginning of the season if this is not to be purchased.
*Rugby - €55 is charged for a team training top and training hoody. This is optional and parents/guardians must inform the Athletic Director at the beginning of the season if this is not to be purchased.
Any extra kit purchased, e.g. Rugby / Football shorts, black socks, Rugby Contact Top etc.
All travel costs to any fixture outside of the Zuid Holland and ISST or end of season tournaments. Please note, we always try to involve other school teams with away travel games (except ISST) to keep transportation costs to a minimum.
Accommodation - Even though students are often housed when they travel away, there are some situations whereby students will stay in Hotel Accommodation due to the limitations of the host school or the nature of the tournament. Should this happen all students involved will be looked after by ISH staff/coaches. You will be informed of the details, including costs involved, in advance.
The Recreational Programme: The cost of these activities vary. Some are charged per session or for the total number of weeks.
The Competitive Club Programme: These costs can change. For the 2019/2020 season they are:
- Hockey = €315 Full Season
- Basketball = €185 Full Season / €100 Half Season
