The athletic budget at Mary Immaculate School is self-supporting; that is to say it must pay for itself. In order to do that, athletics must raise a certain amount of revenue. The main avenue for raising that money is through our sports fees. The DPL charges each school an assessment for administration of the DPL office and its employees, as well as a certain amount to enter each team in the league in its respective sport. These fees cover the costs of administering the league games, official payments, etc.
At MIS, uniforms and practice equipment are provided for our athletes in each of the sports. Those, of course, need to be replaced and/or repaired over the course of the years. To meet these costs a reasonable fee is charged per sport, with the amount dependent upon the number of students who sign up. The fees are collected at the beginning of each season, usually before the uniforms are issued.
