Basketball Fee Schedule
The 2009-10 version of Section 1204:
Effective Until Further Notice
(8)Scrimmages. TASO chapters shall be paid for scrimmages using the following fee schedule:
(Fees are based on a three-hour scrimmage.)
NOTE: After three hours, each additional hour is $25. The fees paid are regardless of the level of competition. The fee will be paid to the local chapter and not to the individual officials, to be used in place of assignment or service fees. A portion of these fees should be used for education, retention and recruitment of officials.
Chapters that agree to provide officials and charge for scrimmages are under obligation to provide officials for the school for the entire season, grades 7-12.
A chapter that requests a service/assignor fee from schools will not be a chapter in good standing with TASO and thus will not be eligible for post-season assignments.
(9)Sub-varsity/Varsity Gate Receipts Combined. When sub-varsity games/matches are played prior to varsity games/matches at the same site with the gate receipts combined, the game/match fees plus mileage paid to the sub-varsity officials may be deducted from the gross gate receipts prior to calculating the varsity officials’ game fees.
(10)Other sub-varsity sports and tournaments may not exceed listed fees for respective varsity sports. In game arrangements not listed above, schools and officials shall agree on a fee not to exceed listed fees for varsity sports.

(A)session or game receipts;
