As a new organization starting up in this historic time of COVID-19 we had concerns about starting a new organization in times of financial hardship but we really believe that when this is all done and over we are going to have kids that want to get involved with sports again and parents that would like to but may not be able to afford to let them play or have the means to do the travel that would be needed in another organization so we decided to move forward!
Our start-up costs are broken down in the column to the R. To run a league with 100 players we would need approx 14k which includes fundraising and registration. Half of that is start-up costs and half is yearly consumables (uniforms, web site, Insurance, etc). If we raise 7k the cost would be $70 per player. 9k it would be $50 per player. We are going to set a goal of 10k and hopefully that would allow us to get some new dirt for the fields as well. The money we raise on go fund me will be held and purchases made in January when we know we have met our registration goals. If not we will refund donations.
