Admission to events
Admission to Events

  • The Central Iowa Metropolitan League charges admission to all middle school athletic events. The league has adopted this policy and set the admission price at $3.00 for adults and high school students, $1.00 for students K-8, and $1.00 for seniors who are 55 years and older.

  • Some schools at certain times will not charge due to their facilities being under construction or not having an area that is conducive for selling tickets.
