Registration Fee Increase

For the past several years, we have struggled with getting people to volunteer to help with securing team sponsors.  While we have gotten cooperation on a relatively small scale, we just haven't had someone who is willing and able to spend the time that is necessary to organize and coordinate the effort.  The main concern is the lack of following up on receiving payment.  On average, we only receive payment from about half the sponsors.

So, this year, we've decided to eliminate team sponsors, and raise the registration fee $20 ($5 for Instructional) to cover the minimum that a team sponsor could pay in the past.  It's unfortunate that we have to do this, but we need to make up the loss of revenue somewhere. 

Without having sponsors for team names this year, we will use NBA and college names for our teams.

School Parking and Entrance Information

Below are pictures of the three schools we use for games.  In order, they are Nottingham High School, Crockett Middle School, and Grice Middle School.  Each picture highlights the parking areas and entrances to be used.  There will be no exceptions to these.  There may be an entrance closer to where you park, but the only entrance that should be used is the one noted on the pictures.  

Thank you for your anticipated cooperation!

 

 

 


Cancellations Due to Weather - Communication Plan

In the event that there are cancellations, it will immediately be posted on the league website (www.HLLBasketball.net) and our Facebook page.  An email will then be sent to everyone in the league.  The coaches will be asked to also contact their team to make sure the message gets out.  A text may or may not be sent by the league.  Bulk texting is not always reliable.

Please do not email, text, or call asking if games are still on.  We will not have the time to respond.  When we know, you will know.

Thank you for your cooperation.
