This depends on the school. Typically, schools pay the entire registration fee or offset the costs by splitting the registration fee with students. In the case of the latter, schools pay the entire fee up-front, and proceed to collect funds from students afterwards.
Increasingly popular over the years is the practice of registering multiple teams. Benefits associated with this practice include:
(i) reducing costs per student, i.e., three teams with five students on each results in roughly $50 per student;
(ii) increased school spirit, i.e. last year one school registered nine (9) teams in which dozens of students would gather in the library on a weekly basis, forming a mini community within the school;
(iii) with more teams comes an increased chance of qualifying for the In-Person Championship Bowl, our flagship event of the season.
