    *Registration fee is $140 for the 1st month and a one time fee of $45 for your player's jersey and shorts.

    1. $140 monthly dues for each month thereafter. Compared to other AAU programs, we can't be beat. Guaranteed!

    *** It is imperative that if you are registering your son or daughter, you pay the $140.00 registration fee. The uniform fee is optional at this time, primarily because the uniform price may ultimately be a bit cheaper. Your $140.00 rate is guarateed and fully refundable if your son or daughter is not able to be placed on a team. The fees are paid through Paypal, which is guaranteed.

    2. An additional $14 fee will need to be paid in the first 30 days to the Amatuer Athletic Union. their website is www.aausports.org. Once there, go to registration and pay that fee. you will be given an AAU number for your child immediately. We would need that number for your child to start practicing.

    3. Monthly payments of $140 are due by the 10th of each month. Late fee is an additional $25

    4. There is NO contract, so, players can leave the team and will incur no penalty and return later by just paying the monthly rate. We certainly hope that the players wll stay with us as we have a wealth of talent to offer.
