Cost to Families

No Cost - we will be purchasing a $60-65 photo package for each family out of fundraising.

The details on the photo package will be sent to you in a future email. I don't think you will need to order anything else, but you certainly can. It will include 8x10 team photo a 12x18 team poster and all the individual photo sizes you probably would need.

An example of the team poster design follows this section.

Of note

Business licenses, city and state along with proof of insurance have been received from the photographer. Also, he is the photographer for YMCA Sports.

Things to Watch with Schedule

Keep an eye on registrations for the 11U AAA Warm up in Nevada (June 18-19 Weekend) .

This tourney has the potential to "struggle to fill." If that is the case, one tourney we could look at would be the KC Sports Slugfest (same tourney we attended last year). This would become a travel weekend.
