MYSA offers three types of registration for the Winter Symposium: club pass, individual and onsite registration. The club pass is a way for a club to participate in the Winter Symposium as a group and take advantage of saving on registration fees. For $600, this pass gives the club the ability to reserve ten registrations for coaches and/or administrators for the cost of eight. In addition, with the purchase of the club pass, the club President and Director of Coaching will receive complimentary attendance passes. This adds up to a savings of $240 under the cost of individual registrations for the same number of people. The deadline to purchase a club pass is Friday, December 18, 2015. Clubs need to commit to a club pass by this date but names of attendees are not due until January 22. If you have more than ten attendees interested, they can also be registered at the discounted rate.

Individual registration is also available until Friday, January 22, 2016 for $70. If you miss out on these two registration options, onsite registration is offered the day of the event for $140.
