Frequently Asked Questions


How much does it cost to play in the Because You Care Cup?

There isn’t an individual registration fee for this event. Instead, teams are required to reach a fundraising target, based on division. When registration closes, if the team has not met their target, they will be required to pay the remaining balance immediately before being placed on the schedule of the event. Teams can have up to 8 players. We recommend each player be responsible for raising an equal share. There will also be prizes for top fundraisers.

Division Fundraising Targets:

  • Youth (ages 8-11) - $200
  • Youth (ages 12-14) - $200
  • Youth (ages 15-18) - $200
  • Men - $500
  • Women  - $500
  • Corporate - $750
