Volunteer hours can be completed by family members 18 years of age and older.  Players are welcome to help with concession stand shift but may not work alone.

 

EQUIPMENT

Custom jerseys will be provided for players to keep at the end of the season. Participants need to provide socks, black pants, helmet with chin strap/cage, and glove.  Fielding masks are not required, but are highly recommended for safety.

TOURNAMENTS

The NFSA will provide funding for up to two tournaments per team. The Tri County State Qualifier Tournament and the State Tournament are also included in the registration fee. 

PLAYING TIME

  • Equal playing time in not guaranteed. Over the course of the regular season, each player will get a fair and ample amount of playing time. Coaches have the authority to limit playing time if a player has absences from games and/or practice. 
  • If a player is going to miss any game or practice, the player or a family member must notify the coach in advance. Failure to do so may result in a loss of playing time.
  • The State Qualifier and State Tournaments follow strict ASA rules which restrict substitutions on the line-up card. These rules may result in reduced playing time for some players as the coaches use their best judgement to field the most competitive team.
