      ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR 2018

      *NO CHANGES to BPA bat rules

      *NO CHANGES to BPA age eligibility rules

      *Expanded online payment capabilities

       

       

      *5 TOURNAMENT BUNDLE!

      Special discount pricing is available for our most loyal

      BPA teams this year by taking advantage of the 5 Tournament Bundle package.

      Simply choose the 5 tournaments that you want to play and then pay online using

      the 5 Tournament Bundle button.

       

      *Sanction/Insurance Bundle!

      We have simplified the sanction and insurance

      process by offering a single payment system that covers both.

       

      *Revised Tournament Pricing!

      We adjusted our entry fees slightly for 2018.

      BPA/Westpoint weekend insurance policies are now included in the new tournament

      entry fee. Teams that have full BPA policies will get a $20 discount (which

      means no increase from previous years).

       

      *Fri/Sat Tourney Options! We got great feedback from the Fri/Sat tournament that

      we did last spring, so we are going to offer 1 Fri/Sat tournament each month

      this spring.

      League Team State Tournament – April 23-28

      This is open to ALL regular season teams playing in a BPA league. Pool play will

      be Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, with bracket play on Friday and Saturday. Age

      groups will be divided into multiple brackets based on pool play results to

      level the playing field for the weekend.

       

      BPA All Star State Tournament – May 31-June 2

      This is open to ALL BPA league all star teams AND/OR regular season teams. Each

      league can send multiple teams if they want.

       

      HOW TO GET INSURANCE
      call Ann Marie at 800-318-7709 after you get your sanction number.
      Tell her you’re part of BPA Alabama. Rates are VERY competitive.
      6/7/8U $61
      9/10U $64
      11/12U $71
      13/14U $77
      HS (18U) $91
      You MUST have BPA insurance to play in a tournament with us.
      I recommend purchasing the full policy because it’s really good insurance,
      and it’s not expensive. You also have the option of purchasing a weekend policy each time you play with us.
      That cost is now $15 per tournament and can be added to your entry fee.

      CANCELLATION POLICY
       

      I know it’s frustrating for coaches and parents when a schedule is released on Wednesday night and then it is changed on Thursday or even Friday.

      This became more of an issue as we went through this past spring and summer.

      To try to help prevent this in the coming season, any team that drops out AFTER the schedule is posted will be assessed a $100 cancellation fee.

      EJECTION POLICY
      Any coach, player, or spectator who is ejected must leave the complex immediately and will be suspended for the following game in the same tournament.
      RAINOUT POLICY
      We have had to deal with a lot of rain the past few weeks, so I wanted to clarify for all coaches what our policy is on rainouts.

      Play 1 game – 67% discount on next tourney
      Play 2 games – 33% discount on next tourney
      Play 3 or more – no discount

      There are no refunds on admission that is paid to enter the parks.
