*MANDATORY LEAGUE FUNDRAISER (SPRING BASEBALL ONLY)
BY SUBMITTING THIS APPLICATION, YOU ARE AGREEING TO PARTICIPATE IN OUR $100 LEAGUE FUNDRAISER. This is the League’s only Fundraiser, and it is mandatory for all players. Currently, our League Fundraiser is the sale of Raffle Tickets. Each player is required to sell $100 worth of $5 Raffle Tickets. The $100 Fundraiser amount must be paid fully before February 28, 2024. Uniforms will not be distributed until the Fundraiser Fees are collected.
Please note that the League does not intend for the Fundraiser amount to be paid directly by our parent members but instead be treated as an opportunity to raise support for our program through collections from family, friends, neighbors and other members of our community. The Raffle will take place at the end of the season and you will have ample time to sell the tickets.
VOLUNTARY TEAM SPONSORSHIP (SPRING BASEBALL ONLY)
THERE IS A VOLUNTARY $200 TEAM SPONSORSHIPS FOR TEAM'S THAT ARE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE. Teams are encouraged to participate, this is a great way to build community with our local businesses, and they will be listed as a sponsor on our website - through the use of coupons, many sponsors have had much success developing new business from our membership. Sponsorships are also not intended to be collected from our parent members but rather to be raised from community businesses.
*SNACK BAR DEPOSIT (SPRING BASEBALL ONLY)
The success of Heartwell Baseball Inc. depends on parent participation, and this is especially true for our Snack Bar. To this end, we require a $75 Snack Bar Deposit per player, and every family is required to work in the Snack Bar for a total of 6 hours (e.g., 2 shifts of 3 hours each or 1 shift of 6 hours) per player, in order to receive a refund of your Snack Bar Deposit. Of course, for those of you who are willing and able, we are happy to have you volunteer more and welcome you to become an active participant in our community.
There are opportunities besides the Snack Bar to earn your "Snack Bar Credits", if interested please inquire with a representative of the league.
Players who register after the start of the Draft will be subject to a $25 late fee. This fee is necessary to cover the additional expense incurred when ordering additional player uniforms individually.
REFUND POLICY (SPRING and FALL BASEBALL)
The last day to request a refund of registration fees will be the DAY PRIOR to the start of the League Draft. (For Fall Ball, the "draft" will be the assigning of teams on opening day). All requests for refunds must be made, in writing, to the attention of the League Player Agent. If eligible, refunds will be issued less a $25 cancellation fee.
Payments made for the Snack Bar Deposit and/or the League Fundraiser will also be eligible for refunds, but please note, any Park User Fees collected are non-refundable.
