You will be able to access your teams page with rosters, games, past scores, live scoring, events and practice schedules, pictures and video that only registered team members can access, as well as financial reports for your team. You can also download the NBC Sports Engine app at the Google Play Store or the Apple store, available for both Android and Iphone, The app will let your manager or team parent communicate directly with you as well.

 

Q: What is included with the registration fee?

Last season we also gave each player a Pico Boys cinch sack as well as a Pico Boys pen and pencil. The shirt, pictures and any extra gifts are given at the trophy ceremony at the conclusion of the season.

You also get (25) $2 raffle tickets valued at $50. You have the choice to sell these raffle tickets and keep the money towards your registration, or you may enter the raffle yourself by filling out each ticket with your information and submitting them for the raffle. The raffle will take place opening day and your team parent will let you know when we will begin collecting them for the draw.

Uniforms are not included as it is a Pico Boys' tradition that each manager decide the uniform they choose and most offer fundraising as a additional way to offset the cost of the uniform.

 

Q: What fundraisers am I required to participate in during the season?

A: The league mandates 1 league fundraiser for each participant. This fundraiser will be decided shortly. It will require the selling of an item/items totaling $60 where $30 will be raised for the league. If you do not wish to participate in this fundraiser you will be allowed to do a buyout equaling $30.

Team fundraisers are separate from league fundraisers. If you do not wish to participate in your teams fundraisers please talk to your manager or team parent. By not participating in team fundraisers you may forfeit your right to the end of the year team gifts for your child. Please discuss these concerns at the beginning of the season so there is no miscommunication regarding these fundraisers.
