Player Costs:

The season will run August 2019 – July 2020 for all age groups.  Individual teams will set their specific practice and tournament schedule.  8U teams will be provided a budget for approximately 5 spring 2020 tournaments.  The remaining age divisions will be given a budget for approximately 8 spring 2020 tournaments.

  • Entry into fall tournaments will be determined by each team and coach and will be an additional expense.
  • End of the season tournaments (World Series/Nationals/Regionals) are not included in the 5 & 8 game budget.  It will be up to the coaches and parents to determine participation in an end of the season tournament.  Expenses for this will be outside and in addition to the regular season games noted above.  Your team’s remaining budget  (not used, cancellations, rainouts) can be used to fund these tournaments.
  • Banners, coaches shirts, and other team expenses will be left to the individual team and coaches.  We have 2-3 different Rams apparel opportunities.
