2018 Player Registration
On behalf of the Upper Moreland Little League Board of Directors and its legion of volunteers, I want to wish you and your family a healthy, prosperous and Happy New Year! Here's wishing all the best for you and your Little Leaguers in 2018!!!
So ... with a New Year comes a New Season of Little League Baseball/Softball at UMLL! We look forward to hopefully welcoming back players from prior seasons along with new players this season. To that end, UMLL is pleased to announce that online registration is now OPEN for the Spring 2018 season.
To register, you can go onto the league website @ www.umll.net and log on with your account information created last year OR create a new account if you haven't registered with us in prior seasons. You will be able to confirm all of your contact information is still correct and then register your children.
As we embark on our Spring 2018 registration campaign, we wanted to call your attention to some changes in the registration fee structure. Due to the rising costs of maintaining our facilities and our programs, including complying with Little League Baseball's new bat standards for 2018, regrettably we needed to increase the cost of registration this season to $135 per player with a family cap of $270. The increase in registration fees this season over last season is also intended to help offset the elimination of credit/debit card processing fees that we've charged in the past for payment transactions through our website and at our Snackstand, as well as the elimination of the calendar raffle fundraiser that previously we encouraged every player to support in the past. As always, we will continue to reinvest registration fee income into the operation of our program and our facilities to make it the very best experience we can for our children.
We encourage families to register players within the important registration deadlines outlined below, on or before Sunday, February 18th. Registration will be temporarily closed beginning Monday, February 19th to prepare for player drafts that week, and, once registration re-opens after the conclusion of player drafts, registration fees will increase by $10 per player to $145 per player, with a family cap of $290.
Payment of registration fees this season MUST be made online, and at the time of registration, barring any special circumstances, which we encourage you to contact us at registration@UMLL.net to discuss further.
Just to make you aware of some registration-related deadlines...
+ The UMLL Board of Directors will be appointing team managers for the upcoming Spring baseball/softball season at a Special General Board meeting, likely to be held the week of February 19th. To be eligible for selection as a manager this season, you MUST complete the online Manager application form found under 'Online Forms' at www.UMLL.net. In addition, you MUST complete the Little League Volunteer Application - 2018, also found at www.UMLL.net, The deadline for submission of these forms will be Sunday, February 18th, so please do not delay so we can begin to formulate a listing of manager candidates for 2018.
+ We will accept player registrations for the Spring 2018 season up through Sunday, February 18th with a guarantee that any players registered by that date will be eligible for the player drafts that occur in late-February 2018 and will be drafted & assigned to a team. Players registered AFTER February 18th MAY be placed on a waiting list in leagues that are filled.
Regardless, player registrations WILL be suspended beginning Monday, February 19th through the completion of player drafts that week, so if your child(ren) is NOT registered on or before February 18th, s/he will not be eligible for selection to a team by managers during their respective league draft and, instead, will be assigned to the next team in line to receive a player AFTER the player drafts are complete. In other words, if you want your child(ren) to be eligible to be drafted by a specific manager or to a specific team, make sure s/he is registered on or before Sunday, February 18th!
+ Team sponsorship opportunities are available for the Spring 2018 season! Details, including cost information and instructions for locking in your team sponsorship will be e-mailed/mailed to returning team sponsors in the coming weeks. In the interim, the online sponsorship form is available now at www.UMLL.net.
+ Please continue to check www.UMLL.net for additional information regarding Spring 2018 player registrations! In the interim, you may direct questions regarding player registrations to registration@UMLL.net.
