Schools Competition

2017 Schools Competition Fees:

Fees for DAV programs are structured around a sliding scale, based on the number of teams you enter.


Team fees (per team, per grade)

Teams 1-2

$205 per team

Teams 3-4

$250 per team

Teams 5-6

$335 per team

Teams 7-8

$420 per team

Teams 9-10 $475 per team


Please note - team registration in the Schools Competition is capped at a maximum of 10 teams per grade. In some regions this cap will be lower than 10 teams in order to provide opportunity for as many schools as possible to participate.


In addition to these fees, all schools are required to pay an annual membership fee to participate in DAV competitions.  This is a one-off annual payment for all DAV competitions, so if your school has already participated in the Schools Competition this year, you will not be required to pay again:

$75

4-9 teams

$110

10-14 teams
