Terms & Conditions
These Terms and Conditions have been updated as of 06/12/2019. We urge you to read them all carefully.
By signing up your child(ren) to the 5TLL baseball league, you are agreeing to allow your son to play baseball in this league. You understand that there are inherent risks in any type of sporting event, whether from the balls, bats, players or anything else. You also agree that you will not hold 5TLL.com, any of its officers or employees, or any volunteers (including coaches) liable for any damages of any sort that may arise.
You understand that the fall season which can run on any dates between 09/00/2019 and 11/24/2019 includes a pre-determined amount of games. In case of inclement weather, we may be forced to reduce the total number of games. There are no playoff scenarios for the fall season.
Although there are no refunds in the league, we will have a 7-day grace period after signup in case your child(ren) can't play. We will only charge a $10.00 processing fee. After 08/15/2019 there will be no grace period. Should you chargeback a fee on a credit card or bounce a check, you agree that you are responsible for any fees that we may incur. If we need to collect the money via small claims court, you agree to pay for all reasonable court costs.
The 5TLL does not allow friend requests for any teams. Coaches can choose two players from the correct age group before the season begins and we will attempt to put these boys on the team. Restrictions apply. If you placed your child in an incorrect grade, we cannot guarantee placement on any team when teams are created.
The 5TLL tried very hard to ensure that all teams are fair. We use our customized rating system as well as input from coaches. However, due to the nature of the game, there will always be teams that play better than others. Some teams might win every game and some might lose every game. The 5TLL does not guarantee any team will play well, although at times we will modify teams if possible.
Children playing in the 5TLL are expected to behave appropriately. This includes but is not limited to, not arguing with the umpires, not yelling at other players or teammates, not using inappropriate language, etc. Parents and guardians should not argue with the coach, umpires or players as well. In the unlikely event that a player or his guardian violates these rules of conduct, the 5TLL reserves the right to expel him from the league. It is understood that if a player is expelled, a refund will not be issued.
Playing Baseball requires a commitment. When signing up your child, you must understand that his team needs him. Since the teams are smaller than in past years, if he does not show up, it can cause his team to have gaps in the defense. Furthermore, teams that cannot field six players at the start time, forfeit the game. Please verify that your son can play on game days before signing up. Should your son miss more than two games without contacting the team coach or the league, we reserve the right to remove him from the team and assign a new player for the team.
Our new rating system will help to keep the teams fair. Please rate your children as honestly as possible. The league will not share ratings with your child with anyone except for his coach. You understand that if we feel that a child was incorrectly rated more than +/- four points, we reserve the right to change his team mid-season. In layman's terms, if your son is rated completely incorrectly, it can affect the teams. We will, therefore, have to change the team he's on. This will not happen if you try to be honest.
The 5TLL and its commissioners do their utmost to keep information submitted, private. We don't share your email address or any information without your consent. However, by signing up your child(ren), you agree that we may use their photographs for advertising. If you want to opt out of this, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "Opt out of photos" and in the message list your child(ren)'s name(s). Once we reply back, your request will be considered confirmed.
The 5TLL tried to keep the prices down whenever possible. Nonetheless, there are those that can't afford the league fees. We take all sponsorships and apply it to the price of those that apply. Although we do slightly vet all applications, we mainly rely on the honor system.
