Our program will be offered at a cost $150 per player this season. This cost will cover gym rental, league administration, uniform expense, referee payments and other misc. fees for the program. There is a possibility that there will be reductions in the amount of games that are played this season due to COVID related issues. Regardless of the number of games played, THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS ISSUED. PLEASE MAKE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND THIS RISK PRIOR TO REGISTERING YOUR PLAYER. We are non-profit volunteer organization. Issuing refunds to potentially hundreds of players is not administratively feasible. All money received by the organization will remain in the program. If there are excess funds due to a reduced number of games, money will go towards future expenses incurred by the program. This could mean reduced player fees in future years, updated uniforms, additional gym rental at outside facilities, etc.
Our program will take COVID guidance from the State of Ohio, CPYBL and Madeira City Schools. Our plan to start the season is to follow the established protocols of the Madeira City Schools athletic department. We anticipate changes to our program protocols through out the season based on guidance from all of these organizations. We appreciate your patience and understanding regarding this.
We are a 100% volunteer organization. Our board members and coaches provide countless hours of behind the scenes work each season. There is an expectation that the parents of each player contribute their time to the organization. This could be through a variety of opportunities including gym monitor duties, clock/scoreboard operation etc. We expect all parents to be active participants.
The program will provide a uniform for each player this season. We will include a warmup/shooting shirt that will be the players to keep. Coaches will distribute uniforms prior to the first game. It will be your responsibility to return a CLEAN UNIFORM to your coach at the end of the season.
