RAPTORS BASEBALL FINANCIAL POLICIES
All refund requests through 1/15/2023 will be issued in full minus a $50 administrative fee. Any registration or refund request made after 1/15/2023 is 100% non-refundable even in the event of (but not limited to) a delayed or cancelled season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
All registered players are expected to have their season dues paid at time of registration. Payment plans are available by communicating the need of a payment plan to the director of baseball. If a player registered during early registration but not paid for by the end of early registration (12/31/2022) then they will be subjected to the full registration cost which goes into effect on 1/1/2023.
All active players must be paid in full at time of registration. If a AA player is not paid in full prior to the start of practice (Februatry 27, 2023), the player will be removed from the active rosters until the fees are paid. Any player signing up after February 27, will have their fees due in full at the time of registration. If those fees are not paid or have arrangement to pay them, then access to your teams games, practices, tournaments will be suspended. Any outstanding fees owed at the conclusion of the AYL World Series will be due by the friday after the world series has concluded (6/23/2023). If any outstanding fees are not paid by that date, Raptors Athletics can and will send the outstanding amounts to collections. Raptors can and will also suspend the familiy's ability to participate in any Raptors sanctioned or funded functions including (but not limited to) games, practices and tournaments for the foreseeable future.
If your team is subject to a forfeit, AYL will assess a fine for the forfeit ($100 for regular season games, $200 for playoff games). There will also be field use and umpire charges that will be assessed as well. These fines and charges will be split amongst the families responsible for the team having to forfeit. The forfeit fines and charges will be added to the account of those responsible for causing the forfeit. If the forfeit occurs during the regular season, those players will become ineligible to play until their forfeit fines and charges are paid and they will be subject to reoccurring charges and fines if they refuse to pay the charges and fines resulting in further forfeits. If the forfeit occurs during the playoffs (causing the end of the team's season), the fines and charges will be added to that players account and due within 90 days of the forfeit. If the fines and charges are no paid within 90 days, then the outstanding balance will be sent to collections.
HEAD COACH PAYMENT POLICY
In appreciation to our head coaches for volunteering for the position, Raptors Baseball will compensate these indviduals by offering a 100% discount on their players fees for the season. However, Raptors baseball also loans out baseball equipment to the head coaches on the understanding that the equipment will be returned at the conclusion of the season. Head coaches must pay for their season of baseball as any other registrant will. At the end of the season, with the retun of the equipment, the head coach will have their season fee refunded. If the equipment is not returned or the coach fails to finish the season, they will forfeit the paid fee as a replacement deposit for the equipment.
