2019 Junior Secondary Program Fees

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

Please note - team registration in the Junior Secondary Program is capped at a maximum of 10 teams per school per region. 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:
