REFUND POLICY

All monies paid for registration fees are NONREFUNDABLE.



PLAYING UP/New Age Determination Date
For purposes of recreational, in-house play, Mars Baseball has an "age or grade policy".  In other words, players can play in an in-house league according to their age as of April 30 or they can "play up" in the league where the majority of their classmates play.  In other words, players born between May 1 and August 31 who started kindergarten when they were 5 are allowed to "play up" so that they can play with their classmates.  However, players born between May 1 and August 31 who started kindergarten when they were 6, should play according to their age as of April 30 so they are playing with the majority of their classmates.  The rationale is that recreational baseball is about development and socializing with friends and classmates.  

Other than stated above, no other play up requests will be considered.

2021 13U Travel Wearing

We estimate that the 13U Travel Wearing will spend roughly $500 per player. 

This is how fees will be collected:

*$100 per month from November 1 through March 1, 2021.

*This amount is subject to increase or decrease due to team fundraising, actual costs of tournaments, etc.  The coach will keep you informed about the budget.  However, the coach likely will not be finalizing the budget until the spring of 2021.

 

Please note that it is extremely important to stay current on your team fees.  Teams start registering for tournaments during the winter plus they have to pay for winter training. 

Please let us know if you require different payment arrangements because you have a financial situation or if any other circumstances arise. 

 

ALL TRAVEL TEAM FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE REGARDLESS OF THE REASON FOR LEAVING THE TEAM.  ROSTERS AND BUDGETS ARE BASED ON YOUR CHILD'S COMMITMENT.  IF YOUR CHILD DECIDES TO DE-COMMIT TO A TEAM, IT PUTS THE ENTIRE TEAM AT RISK OF NOT BEING ABLE TO PLAY DUE TO NOT HAVING ENOUGH PLAYERS.
