The Bishop Watterson High School Athletic Association serves as a sub-committee of the Bishop Watterson School Board. The purpose of the Association is to assist the Athletic Department of the school in raising funds in support of the athletic programs. The fiscal year for the Association is July 1 through June 30.
The specific goal of the Association’s is to assure the Association has the necessary funds to accomplish its mission, while keeping the Association on a sound financial basis.

The fee payment deadline is before the first game/event. All fees are non-refundable after the first game/event. The student/athlete will not be permitted to participate until the fees are paid. Paying the fees does not guarantee a student/athlete playing time. If a student/athlete loses eligibility after their fees have been paid, there will be no refund.
If a family is having financial difficulties, contact Doug Etgen, Athletic Director, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Questions about volunteering can be directed to Traci Byas, email@example.com.
Other Costs – The objective of this fee scale is to charge a one time fee for each sport. In doing so we will eliminate the extra fees historically charged by each indiviual team on top of the overall BWAA fee. While the fees may appear to be more we have found through historical analysis that in most cases the total cost of playing a sport by eliminating other team fees is relatively consistent.
Other Efforts – Families may be required to assist with additional duties specific to the sport(s) of their student athlete(s). Such duties may include: transportation to and from athletic events, assistance before, during or after athletic events or other sport specific duties such as volunteer in the concessions, etc.
