A SIMPLE FYI
WE HAVE HAD SEVERAL QUESTIONS ABOUT FINANCES TOWARDS ALLSTARS.
Here is the skinny on the situations. Raton Little League will not be providing hotel rooms for Allstars. We do provide everything else your child/player needs (aside from their personal equipment) for the tournament itself. Most hotels have a breakfast included, so whether you are traveling back and forth, or spending the night, we leave that to the individual. We will cover the player/coaches lunch and dinner as well as any necessities needed beyond our donations of ice, water and gatorades. Also provided are the uniforms, all district fees, patch fees, provisions of umpire that we must provide for the tournament, and Little League International fees. All in all, this has the potential to cost around $200/player (if all teams win their brackets) which we do not charge the individual as most leagues do. That said, we understand the concern with finances, but know we would rather allow you to make your choice on hotel rather than pay for your child to play and then we make the choice for you.
Thank you for being understanding and allowing your child to be a part of something bigger than themselves.
These are memories that will last a lifetime!
