Have you noticed a change to the breakdown of registration fees? This is a result of a new internal revenue system in which we can no longer break down the registration fee. However below is a suggested breakdown based on previous years for both the sponsors and the players. Please note that the total cost for the Spring/Summer Softball season has only increased by $35. We hope this helps explain the change in our fee structure and please let us know if we can provide you with any further explanation and/or documentation.
2010 Fees 2011 Fees
Suggested Sponsor Fee $450 $465
Suggested Team Fee $350 $370
Total Registration Fee $800 $835
|New Home Run Rule|
You Spoke. We Listened.
After receiving numerous requests and much thought the NEW Softball Home Run Rule is here!
On all fenced fields or in cases where obstacles result in a ground-rule home run each team is allowed 3 home runs. After each team reaches 3 home runs the following progressive rule will be implemented. Once both teams have reached their home run limit, either team may hit an additional home run, however; no team can go up by more than one home run at any given time. If any additional home runs occur above the one-up rule the ball will be scored as a dead-ball out. This rule applies to all levels of play without exception.
