What will USIST cost to enter?
In short, there is a team fee PLUS a fee per person attending (those in teams and those coming to party need to pay this).
All individuals pay the individual fee, team members, coaches, spectators, everyone.
So total payable = team fee + (number of people * individual fee)

- When asked how many you are registering, include players, reserves and anyone else that needs to pay (accommodation / food / social).
