Dear Families of Mel Ott Little League,
For the Summer of 2020, the Board of Directors has voted to remove the volunteer fee from our player fees. In the past, this fee was put in place to help run our facilities. Families would pay the volunteer deposit of $40, then volunteer hours working shifts at our facility to recoup their $40.
COVID-19 has changed many things in the way we live our lives. Mel Ott is stewarding this new normal by implementing the practices and recommendations of the CDC, New York State, and Little League, Int. One way to help keep our players and families safe is to reduce the number of people at our facility. As such, we are not asking families to volunteer this year.
Registration at Mel Ott has been open since October of 2019. Many families have paid already. What does this mean for you moving forward? If you have already registered and paid, you will be receiving a refund. The treasurer and secretary are manually going through all accounts to process refunds. Please be patient and we will be in contact with you. If you registered prior to 6/19, and haven’t paid yet, your account will list the old balance, you must pay, and then will be refunded. Our online payment system has some limitations on how we can manage the accounts.
If you are a new registrant 6/19 or after, your fee will be correct. The registration system was modified on 6/19 to include the removed volunteer fee.
Also, we have reduced the fundraising fee from $50 to $25. The above policy applies to this fee as well. You may remember, in the past, the fundraising fee was paid at the time of registration, and families received raffle tickets they could sell to recoup their cost or keep them to enter the raffle.
