Fees and changes for 2020 will continue for 2021
As many if not all of our MAA families are aware, 2019 was a financially challenging year for the MAA due to unforeseen costs associated with increased field prep fees from the city that more than doubled what we had been paying in the past from $70 to $165 per field prep on city fields. Please note we do not receive any financial support from the city for our program. To reduce the impact, we moved games away from Bluhm Park because of high field prep costs and the inability to play double headers. We also made efficient use of the city fields we did use by scheduling 2 games per field per night.
Prior to 2019, we knew that our fees would need to be adjusted due to increased costs and then the added field prep costs only made the problem worse. We feared we might have to raise our fees by as much as $75-$100 per player.
The MAA board has reviewed our cost and league structure and come up with the following multi-faceted plan to adjust the league structure and fee structure for 2020.
League Realignments: The age groups for many leagues are being adjusted and we are lowering the starting age for T-Ball from 5 years to 4. In addition, the T-Ball league will change to playing 1 game per week (weeknight game day to be determined). See the Program Information page for specific league ages,
All ages are based on the players age as of September 1st of the current year.
Fees Realignments: Historically the MAA has tried to keep its fees as low as possible and as simple as possible by charging the same low fees for all leagues. Going forward we will be adjusting the fees to account for the increased costs associated with older age groups (Umpires, Equipment, Lights, etc.) and the lower costs associated with the younger leagues (fewer games for TBall, no umpires in the younger leagues, lower equipment costs etc.)
|Jr Softball and PeeWee||$110||$125|
|All Other Leagues||$110||$150|
Increased fees are never welcomed but based on where we thought we could be and with the league realignments and efficient use of the fields, we believe this is the best plan moving forward. If in the future the city adjusts the field prep fees to a more reasonable rate we will reevaluate the fees and adjust accordingly. Thank you for your understanding and continued support of the MAA.
