Important Changes to the Traveling Registration Process
There will only be ONE registration this year for traveling players. In previous years the traveling registration process required two registrations - an in-house registration and then a traveling registration after traveling try outs. At times this created confusion and resulted in a mad rush of registrations after try outs. To simplify the process there will only be one registration this year.
If you know your player wants to play traveling basketball this year and will be attending traveling try outs, you only need to register once using the traveling registration.
If a registered traveling player is not offered a roster spot on a traveling team after try outs, or if a player decides not to attend try outs because she only wants to play in-house, then you will be refunded the $100 fundraising fee and $200 of the traveling registration fee ($300 total refund). The player will then be placed on an in-house team.
Important Changes to In-House & Traveling Registration Fees
The in-house registration fee for the 2017-18 season is $150 ($10 less than last year). There will also be NO fundraising fees required this year for in-house players.
The traveling registration fee for the 2017-18 season is $350 ($15 more than last year). The fundraising fee will be the same for traveling players ($100).
There are no changes to the K-1 registration fee. It will be the same $55 fee as last year.
