Hello, looking for advice on how to handle a situation in which a Parent is not paying their fair share towards the end of the season: Travel Team Hockey (AA Level Bantam) Budget was detailed at the beginning of the year and costs and expectations were laid out up front Will likely not play in the minor hockey association next year as they will play High School Owes $1200 to the team and has decided they will not pay the final amount owed now or in the future. Has received some financial assistance for some fees, but not enough to come close to paying for travel hockey Multiple requests were sent to get payment over the year but the parents were non-responsive. Prior to this there was no expectation that they would not pay their share. Regular Season is complete, playoffs are starting. Unknown on whether the parents have a means to pay but they have decided now that they will not pay. What is your opinion on how this situation be handled? Should the kids be restricted from playing in the playoffs immediately pending payment? Should the other parents be responsible for the payments required? Should they be told the reason they have to pay more? Should the parents vote on whether the should pay and if the player should continue to play? Should the manager (volunteer parent) have to pay for it because they can't get the money, but the bills need to still be paid? Should the association pay for it? Should the association enforce as to whether they can play or not? The parent probably cares little about future repercussions as there can't be any. Should all future fundraising go towards that parents bills? I feel terrible about this, but looking for opinions on what to do. While there are programs I donate to personally for basic hockey so kids can play without paying - this is not that and there are significant costs.
