III. PLAYER REGISTRATION
Registration is offerred through the ESBA website. Pre-registration may be offerred to member families from the previous spring season. Families from previous seasons may be excluded from pre-registration based on violation of Bylaws, failure to pay registration fees, abandonment of team for vacations or other recreation activities, each case decided by the Board.
League Ages and Fees:
League age is a player's age on April 30 of the current or upcoming spring season; or a player's age on the following August 31 (an option available to players born in May, June, July, or August). The Board will establish player registration fees for each age group (league) each season. Families registering more than one child per season are extended a sibling discount, allowing a reduction of $10 from the fee of each of the other children from the same family. The Treasurer and President may reduce or waive the registration fee in cases of financial hardship.
New players may not be added to a team roster after 50% of that league's scheduled games have been played, unless approved by the board of directors due to special circumstances.
A player joining a team after opening day will pay the full registration fee if added prior to the 6th game; or three-fourths of the full fee if added after the 6th game.
Upon request of the player’s parent, the Treasurer will refund the registration fee of a withdrawn player as follows:
A full refund less $10 (to cover administrative costs) if the player withdraws by tryouts;
A 50% refund if the player withdraws by the 6th game of the season;
No refund if the player withdraws after the 6th game of the season.
