After 15 years of keeping prices for games and events the same, the KingCo conference announced it will be raising prices this school year by $1.
According to a release from the conference "we understand this may have an impact on those families going through financial challenges. It is for those reasons this decision was put off until this time. Prior to this fall, the last time ticket prices increased for the KingCo Conference was over 15 years ago. The price of transpiration, officials, facility rentals for our post season venues, insurance etc. have increased significantly in those same 15+ years."
Regular season ticket prices will now be $7 for adults and high school students without ASB cards. Visiting school students with ASB cards will be charged $5, as will students grades kindergarten through middle school, who must be accompanied by an adult. There is still no charge at regular season games for high school students with ASB cards, preschool age kids with an adult or for senior citizens 65 and older.
