In order to remain in "good standing" the following MUST be met:
All registration fees must be paid in full by the due date.
All equipment and uniforms must be turned in on time.
Completion of at least 1 Membership duty by the conclusion of the last regular season game.
Membership duties include: Home game functions such as: concession stand, 50/50, booster table, chain gang, security, and game day set-up (physical work involved), ads for the yearbook, team parent, or any other Board approved function. There is a $25.00 conditionally refundable membership fee per child per season. You must complete all membership requirements and 2 membership duties for your fee to be refunded. Refunds are issued after the end of the season. If you would like to opt out of volunteering you may do so by paying a $50 dollar opt out fee PER CHILD.
Failure to complete ALL requirements will result in your child(ren) falling out of good standing. Failure to be in good standing will result in loss of your returner status for the following season as well as forfeiture of your membership fee.
All debit and credit card transactions come with a 5% increase.
**There will be a twenty-five dollar ($25.00) fee for any returned checks.**
$50.00 NON-REFUNDABLE for processing fees. If a child quits by the end (Friday) of the first week of practice all the money you have paid, with the exception of the $50.00 will be refunded, if he/she quits after the first week of practice no money will be refunded.
If your child is injured during a practice or game and requires medical care and there is a need to make a claim with the ESFL insurance, there is a $250.00 deductible payable by you. Any amount over the $250.00 deductible will then be covered by the ESFL insurance.
