Payment Schedule
S The first half of your fees plus your jersey will be due the
night of tryouts.
S Fundraising money earned will be deducted from this
S You can choose to pay for the entire season if you wish
S If you are interested in digital payments, talk to us!
S On tryout night, you will need to bring a check post-dated
for February 1st, 2015 for the second half of your fee that we
will deposit on February 1st.
S Returned checks will get a fee added on
S Our first fundraiser will run from October 21st to November 14th.
All money and orders are due to Ms. Brust at Big Lake Middle
School on November 15th!
S You can turn them in early
S This gives us time to calculate your totals and have an accurate
amount that you owe the night of tryouts
S We are selling Heggie’s Pizza, meat and fruit spreads, and
Happenings books
S We had MANY kids pay for their entire fee through these
S To help offset the costs of the program, we run concession stands
at various tournaments that are held in the Big Lake Schools.
S Each player will have to work one shift in a concession stand
throughout the season.
S Girls in grades 6 and below will need an adult with them
S We will be looking for a “Key Parent” from each team to be on
our concessions committee. You will receive $50 off your fee at a
minimum, and possibly share a percent of the sales.
S We have had problems with players and parents following
through with their concession stand obligations.
S At tryouts, we will also collect a $50 check from each family.
S We will keep this check, and return it to you once your
concession stand obligation has been fulfilled.
S We will only cash the check if you do not work your
scheduled shift.
So, what do we need for
S 1. All forms completed and filled out.
S 2. Payment for your first half of your fees and jersey minus
your fundraising.
S 3. A check postdated for February 1st, 2015 for the second
half of your fees.
