Fall ball date update
Just a heads up that fall ball registration will officially close on July 31st at midnight. The link to register will then reopen and a late-fee will of $15 will be assessed to the registration cost. Any player registered after July 31st will not be guaranteed a spot on a team. Registrations will be taken on a "need basis" to fill teams. We try to keep the teams to 11 players.
The reason for the deadline is that teams have to be formed, coaches must be formed, shirts must be ordered and received, sorted by team and then numbered. This all takes time with around 200 players. There are many things that need to be completed before the season begins. Thank you for understanding and registering early :-)
