    Default Young Ragin Cajun Card

    I just wanted to reach out and see if anyone has heard of the athletic program doing away with the Young Ragin Cajun cards?

    Someone said it was being considered however, if anyone knows anything please let me know.

    For my family it helps us out financially in order to bring the kids to every Cajun event.

    Thanks

    I think the age range changed. Once you are in high school, you need tickets???

    ....possibly there will be a high school type of ticket program....Coach mentioned to our group that he was trying to get a large hs attendance at the Spring game and this will no doubt be the same for the Fall!

    HS aged kid are typically off-limits for special deals. They are considered recruitable regardless of the sport and would be a HUGE compliance issue.

    Why we keep changing the rules we will lose fans.
    Just found out the answer to my question.
    2017-2018 children's ages 2-16 and cost was $110 card.


    2018-2019
    Now 12 and under the price went down to $90 card.


    You may have went down on price but you lose 4 years of bringing the kids to ALL Events.

    This sucks!!!!

    I'm sorry, but if a kid can drive themselves to a game they are old enough to need a Ticket. Also where are the seats? Do you use the card to get an actual ticket?

    I have no idea, I only went and graduated from Louisiana (USL).

    All I am saying it does not matter if other schools have this or not.

    Why mess up a good thing that is working just for more revenue.

    It is a simple formula make it financially easy on bringing kids to ALL sporting events.


    I still say this sucks!!!

    Can you still bring the kids 13 and older to games? Yes you can. Will it cost the parents more? Yes it will.

    Plan accordingly. The university isn't here for people to take kids for cheap to athletic events anymore. That's not the way things work around here anymore.

    You are right I guess the new ways are coming like them or not.

    However, with the new ways you better start winning some regular season championships.

    This part we can agree on. Guess we better hold those coaches accountable that don't.

    I love this program, and hate to see it changed. It's a great way to get youngsters on board.

    They can still get on board. It's just that by 12 years old, it's time we start to treat them as a customer that needs to pay more for admission (through their parents).

    I can't agree more with your post especially for the young kids who in turn go to their school and tell their friends, hey my Dad took me to the basketball, baseball, softball or football game.

    Then all of a sudden we have 3 or 4 parents wanting to go and are now season ticket holders.

    Not too sure that this change was well thought out. While I understand that the focus is bringing in the most dollars, will this change really bend the needle on net dollars in and will it do so enough to be worth taking away the benefits of leaving it as is.

    1. These young'ns are our future. Having them buy in at an early age could be a very valuable annuity in the long run.

    2. Get them to be Cajuns when they are young and there is a much better chance you will get them to attend college as a Cajun. If they were hooked on athletics before they got to college, surely there is a much better chance they will attend athletic functions when they are college students.

    3. In all practicality, most people that can afford tickets for their 13 - 16 yr old kids probably don't use the program anyhow. So, you may be getting more young'ns in the seats and making more money by keeping it as it is.

    4. Why make changes that may restrict attendance commencing at the formative ages when kids start the decision process on where they may attend college?

    Maybe this should be reconsidered.
