We hope this helps explain what your fees go for, as well as the work being done to improve the facilities we all enjoy! If you have any questions about these items, please contact the Board President.

What Do Your Registration Fees Pay For?

Sometimes it's not always clear what your registration fees pay for. Some of the things those funds go for include:
  • Team bag supplies (helmets, bats, baseballs, first aid kit, etc)
  • Paying the city for rent of the baseball fields during the season
  • Costs for end of season trophies and medals
  • Umpires
There's much more, and in order to keep registration fees down we also do fundraising with our raffle as well as spirit wear. We also use concession stand revenue as well as USSSA field rentals to cover our costs and keep your fees down.
But the list above is not all our costs. We also help maintain the fields, not only for player and fan safety but for field quality and improved game experiences. Here's a list of major improvements since 2002:

In 2017 we are looking to build a concessions storage building.  The purpose of this building will be to hold product to be used in the concession stand.  Because of your support of the stands, we do not have enough storage space to hold all the product we go through in a weekend.  This building will provide a bountiful space.

We are also looking to add batting cages, the specific plan is yet to be approved and will be announced when it is approved by the city and the board.
Registration for the 2017 Season is open!
