Additional expenses such as field time, tournaments, umps, games, uniforms, development clinics, etc. will be covered by a Select Premium fee that will be applied to all Select Players. A budget needs to be provided by each Coach and approved by the Select Committee & fundraising initiatives may be used to help offset costs.

    Games and Practices:

    Practices and games will be booked around house league events. No players are to skip their own house league team event to participate in a Select event unless they are given full approval by the Select Committee and the Head Coaches. Players missing regular HL practices to participate in select will be removed from the Select team.

    Games and practices will need to be booked through Alex Elwell for scheduling purposes.
