NEW FOR SUMMER!!!
Based on popular request, we have opened up our "SUBSTITUTE PLAYER" program for the summer season based on the following:
- Teams must have 12 paid players before they are allowed to add a Sub Player.
- Sub Players must be 18 years of age before June 12, 2017, no exceptions.
- There are TWO steps to registering a Sub: 1. Player must register (one time only) and pay the Sub Player Fee (either $10 or $30, see below) AND 2. Player must register for EACH game day ($7.50 per game) in which they will be playing..
- Sub Fees: If the player was rostered in fall 2016 or spring 2017, the Sub Player Fee is $10. If the player did not play in one of the last two seasons, the Sub Player Fee is $30. Game Day Fees are $7.50 per game.
- Tee shirts are not provided for Sub Players.
