Where does the fee go?
Netball Canada fees account for approximately half the cost of a Netball Ontario membership, and in some cases more than half. The remainder of the membership fee is put towards running Netball Ontario. This includes tournament equipment costs, legal, audit and regulatory compliance expenses, equipment storage costs, bookkeeping services, and meeting facility costs, etc. There are many costs associated with running an organization. Netball Ontario is a non-profit organization and posts all of its financial documents on its website. You can see last year's Financial Statements here:

An Important Final Point
Member registration and the associated fees demonstrate to funding bodies that an organization is viable and worthy of funding support for programs.
A strong provincial organization is better able to support its members, both individual and club, by developing and implementing programming that benefits all members in the long term. NBO is entirely volunteer-run and we're always looking for volunteers to help us develop the sport. If you are interested in volunteering with NBO, please email info@NetballOntario.com.
