2021 Workbond Registration

2021 Spring Recreation Registration

2021 Manager/Coach Registration



For 2021 we are using the same Online Registration process that was used for the past 11 years.   If you registered in any year beginning 2010 for an HBL program, please re-use the profile you already have created. If the last time you registered was prior to 2010, you are considered a new player. The registration page has instructions for retrieving your password if you do not remember your password.

While registering please review your contact information and update anything that has changed.  
If you would like to receive text messages when fields are closed you must specify cell phone provider.

Click  on the "Begin Registration" button below to start the registration process


If this is the first time you are registering for an HBL program, registration is completed in three steps...

1. Establish an Account.
Parents / Guardians will establish an account with League Athletics. The title at the top of the page will say:
Guardian Information
This is where you enter information about you. At the bottom of the page is an option to enter information about a second Parent / Guardian. Using this, you will be able to customize notification options (e.g. text message / email) for each Parent. This is a one-time process - you will not need to repeat this for future registrations.

Please list all emails that you would like notifications sent when registering. 

If you would like to receive text messages when fields are closed you must specify cell phone provider.
2. Register Each Player
Each player will be registered individually. The top of the page will say
Participant Information
As with the adult registration, you will only be required to enter your child's information once -- it will be retained for all future registrations.

NOTE -- after you register one player, on the registration review page, you will have the option to register another or complete your registration with your Payment. To receive the family discount, you must register all of your players prior to submitting payment.


Complete your registration by Paying Online. You can pay by Credit Card (Visa/MasterCard) or Electronic Check (direct debit from your checking or savings account). 

NOTE -- your registration is not complete until you've completed payment. We will not allow players who have not paid to participate in league practices or games. If the cost of the program is prohibitive for your family, please contact the league president to discuss alternate arrangements.

2021 Work Bond

All HBL families registering for the 2021 Spring season may choose one of the two work bond options:
1 - Opt out of committing to volunteer hours.  This is a nonrefundable charge of $150 per family.
2 - Opt to fulfill a minimum of 5 hours of volunteer hours during the 2021 season.  This is a charge of $200 per family that is refundable at the end of the season if the 5 hours have been completed.  If the minimum 5 volunteer hours have not been completed by October 31, 2021, the $200 will be forfeited.
