Affiliation Fees

Information for CSPA Registered Participants

 

It has been five years since affiliation fees were last increased (from $84 to $89) to manage increased operating costs for the CSPA. Since 2012 we have focused on better budgeting practices and cutting expenses to avoid fee increases, but the reality is; while our sport is growing in new disciplines and certainly evolving, CSPA is not increasing participant numbers.
