For any new player who does not sign up by September 12th, 2021 for the 2021/2022 season, the monthly price will increase each month the player waits to sign up. You may not take months "off" from the program. The only reason we will allow players to take a month off from paying for the program is if they suffer a baseball injury. If you are hurt in another sport/activity (not related to baseball) during our season or miss months for any other reason, you will still be required to pay for that time you miss.
