FAQs about registration fees and season notes about this year's fees:
“I already registered my child(ren) for 1st through 6th grade league, why was I charged $85?” Some information from our third party processor caused fees to be set initially at $85. This has been corrected and the rate of $70/per player for grades 1st through 6th is in place. Our Board has a list of those who were charged $85 and we will be in touch soon to see if you want to credit the overage toward the basketball fundraiser amount, make it a tax-deductible gift to CSYAA or explore another option. Thanks for working with us on this and please accept our apologies for the mix up.
“Why did the fees go up to play this year?” The CSYAA Board made this decision following a good debate and looking at some important facts. This will be our first increase to basketball fees in more than 3 years. We studied our fees compared to other leagues and we are still on the low end compared to others. Our fees cover jerseys, referee fees and facility use expenses. Unfortunately increased costs in these areas and low participation rates in recent fundraisers made this decision necessary.
“Why are we paying more in registration fees for fewer games?” Last year we had a 10 game season and all-star game. Valuable survey feedback from parents, guardians and coaches resulted in a decision to have a shorter regular season (8 games) with an end of the year tournament. Every team will play at least 9 games including the tournament, some may exceed ten games this year. Thanks to all who offered your feedback at the end of last season.
“We are playing CSYAA flag football, can we still try out for basketball?” Most of our Board members have kids in multiple CSYAA leagues. We always try to make sure our seasons work together as much as possible. Basketball tryouts are scheduled for Oct. 24th and make up tryouts for the afternoon of the 31st. Yes, you can do both.
“I have several kids playing, is there still a sibling discount?” Yes. When you register the sibling discount can be selected and will be deducted from your total.
“I heard the Intermediate Gym can’t be used this year?” This is true. We are working Dr. Faulkner and our friends at CSISD to accommodate our growing league. The venue may change, but we will still have a great season!
“We travel over the holidays, can we still play?” CSYAA plans its schedules around the school calendar so chances are we are off when most families plan holiday travel.
“Who is in charge of the basketball league?” The CSYAA Board of Directors oversees all activities in our league. LaTonya Fields has agreed to serve as our VP for Basketball this year. You will hear much more from LaTonya and her plans to make this an exciting season.
