All Medical Releases are required to be notarized – no matter age or team. We will try to have notaries on hand but STRONGLY advise you to get it notarized prior to the parent meeting
Many of our tournaments are JVA and therefore this form is required for ALL players.

Invoice and Payment Information
Parents – please note the following information in regards to payment.
- All invoices are DUE on the 1st of each month
- Invoices are dated for the 8th of each month – this is AUTODRAFT day – giving you a grace period to mail or drop off a payment prior to actual autodraft.
- There is a processing fee of 3% for all Credit Card payments! If you want to avoid the fee then you may pay via cash or check in the following manner;
- Drop a check off at the facility on or before the 1st. It absolutely must be in the box (black mailbox attached to the front desk) no later than by the 5th of each month – the box is checked once a week.
- Mail a check to our mailing address (NOT THE FACILITY); 8803 Waltham Forest Court, Waxhaw, NC 28173. I strongly suggest it gets to my house no later than the 5th of the month. I travel significantly on the weekends with the teams and cannot guarantee it will be posted prior to the autodraft date if received after the 5th.
- We will not refund Credit Card Charges for checks received too late – we will shred your check.
- If paying by cash – please use a sealed envelope with players name.
- Coaches do not take payments. Including our Satellite locations. If you attend Concord or IT please mail your payments or drop them at the main facility.
- All Invoices can be seen via your league apps account – you can log in there to see invoices, balance due and to change your credit card information.
- TEAM TRAVEL INVOICES: These are setup 1 week after a trip and payment is expected within 2 weeks of the invoice date. Checks or cash must be received 3-5 days in advance of the DUE date on the invoice as the due date is when Credit cards will charge if you have auto payments selected.
- These invoices are True Cost Invoices – we reduce the overall cost by whatever you paid in your team budget and you pay the difference. For Example; If your team fee includes $675 for coaches housing and $300 for Travel for a specific tournament – we reduce the hotel bill and the bus bill by those amounts for each team – THEN, we split the costs amongst those who attend.
- Players are responsible for Bus Driver and Chaperone Housing
- Food costs are split down by team. We do not pay for players individual meals – we only pay for team meals so the cost is evenly divided by each player and by team.
