8. Registration Fees and Policies

Team registration opens the first Saturday in October for all 8U-HS boys and girls teams.

The deadline to register ALL teams with the NCJLA for the season is January 3rd 11:00pm PST.

Late registration is considered on a case by case basis.
Please email execdirector@ncjla.org for details.

The 2021 Season will have Team Registration open during the whole season.


Registration Fees

In order to establish player registration fees, clubs need to know what the team registration fees will be to the NCJLA per team, and the officials’ fees per game for the coming season.  Any changes to fees for a season will be posted to the NCJLA website by late September to give clubs time to incorporate NCJLA fees into their budgets.

Clubs are strongly encouraged to educate their families about how their fees are used and the refund policies of the NCJLA, club or venues used by the club. Families should understand that some fees might not be refundable.

There are 3 parts to the NCJLA team registration fee (total paid to NCJLA). The amount of each fee varies by division based on that division’s size, playdays, and the type of end of season event. A presentation on the registration fees is given at the annual NCJLA Delegates Meeting. For more information on how those are calculated please email .

Please email with questions.


For Boys and Girls 8U & 10UB teams only, the NCJLA will allow late registrations for participation in the Regional Jamborees hosted by the NCJLA (special events in addition to regular season games). These events are offered at the discretion of the NCJLA Board. Please check the NCJLA Events Calendar for information and dates.

The NCJLA will recommend and help facilitate the scheduling of additional games with other clubs nearby should a team want more games than the Jamborees offer. There is no guarantee that teams who register late will be able to secure additional games with other clubs. Please email   for the link to register an 8U or 10UB team after registration closes if Jamborees are offered for that season.

Consequences and process for team withdrawal

If a club withdraws a team from the NCJLA after the withdrawal deadline, registration fees will not be returned and the club may be placed on provisional probation for a length of time to be determined by the board of directors. In addition, the club will be required to pay all team registration fees at the time of registration for the next 3 years following the violation. The club will not be able to attend the scheduling meeting until payment is received. See NCJLA’s bylaws for more on provisional probation.
