REGISTRATION EXTENDED UNTIL MIDNIGHT, MAY 31, 2020

ALL LATE FEES HAVE BEEN WAIVED FOR THE 2020 SEASON

************************************************* New for 2020 Season ************************************************

Beginning with the 2020 Season, an additional $3/transaction will be added to ALL registrations. This charge is by BCB's website host, Sports Connect. BCB does not receive any part of this administrative fee.  

In previous years, BCB used Blue Sombrero to host its website and for credit card processing. Blue Sombrero has been purchased by Stack Sports and brands their youth sports sites under the name Sports Connect. 

• If you are a returning parent, you will notice new branding on the site. But, all your information is still under your account.  
• Sports Connect continues to be a recognized partner with Little League for registration and league management. 
• BCB will continue to absorb ALL the credit card processing fees for families as we have in past years. 
• BCB chose to continue utilizing the resources Sports Connect offers to manage our league as they offer the best solution and are so closely associated with Little League.

Also new for 2020 registration: BCB will register players by age this year. You will be able to select an initial division for your child during registration, but final division assignment will be based on tryouts for those divisions requiring them.  

*****************************************************************************************************************************
Payment plans are available as an option again this year if you register by the Sunday, February 16, 2020 deadline.  

•You can split the cost of playing baseball/softball at BCB into three payments (two for Boys 15-18 Colt). With only a $10 payment plan additional cost/player and a $3/transaction fee added by BCB's host Sports Connect. 

•Your first payment is due when you register and the second payment isn't due until Monday, February 17, 2020 as long as you register by the February 16, 2020 deadline. The third payment is due Tuesday, March 17, 2020. 

•Payment plans only accept Visa/MC for payment. The second and third payments will be automatically deducted from your card on the scheduled dates. NO payment plans can be initiated after the Sunday, February 16, 2020 deadline.  

•Your first payment will include the BCB fundraiser and a yearbook (if you decide to purchase one) and only $1 toward the division price, plus the $3 Sports Connect fee.  

•The remaining payments will divide equally the balance of the division cost, the payment plan cost and the $3 transaction fee from Sports Connect. BCB divided the cost this way trying to balance each of the monthly payments as closely as possible.

Example:  
Registering One 4-year-old player - $75 
Fundraiser - $50 
Payment Plan - $10 
Online traction fee by Sports Connect - $9 ($3 for each of the payment plan transactions) 
Total $144 

•Payment 1 (due at time of registration) - $54 ($1 toward the division cost, $50 Fundraiser and $3 Sports Connect transaction fee) 
•Payment 2 - February 17 - $45 ($37 goes towards the division cost, $5 Payment Plan Cost and $3 Sports Connect transaction fee)  
•Payment 3 - March 17 - $45 ($37 goes towards the division cost, $5 Payment Plan Cost and $3 Sports Connect transaction fee) 

A discount of $10/player will be applied for each child after the first one. The fundraiser will only be charged for first two players registered.  *****************************************************************************************************************************
Fundraiser  --- You will receive 12 discount cards in the mail by March 1. This year’s card has 20 local businesses on it and is good from March 1, 2020 to Feb 28, 2021. Sell the cards for $5 each ($60) and this gives you an additional $10 off your registration.
This will only apply to the first two players in each family.
