We offer a multi-player discount to families. Starting with the third player, each additional player will receive a $10 discount. Note: As our fees are projected off actual costs (rather than a profit margin) the league would lose money if the discount was any higher.

 

A Note About Our Fees:

Our fees are based upon the actual cost to operate the league – there are no paid trainers or coaches. Total funding for the program is derived from player registration fees and sponsorships solicited. We do not receive any financial support from the State of Texas, the City of Houston, Harris County, Kingwood Services Association, or any other organization including homeowner associations. Unlike other baseball programs, we do not have any mandatory fundraisers. The league conducts events such as hit-a-thons and/or raffles from time to time to raise funds for flood remediation (Forest Cove complex floods frequently) and capital projects. The facilities in Kingwood and Forest Cove are leased from the respective homeowner’s associations. The league pays all operating expenses including utilities, infrastructure maintenance and upkeep. Note: The land that the league uses is, for all practical purposes, either landfill from the original build-out of Kingwood or flood zone. This is land that cannot be developed! While other programs enjoy facilities in county or city parks with all infrastructure cost taken care of, their fees are not that much less, IE Humble Baseball regular registration cost is $160 plus participation in League Fundraiser (the sale of30 raffle tickets at a cost of $3 each) OR $240 Buyout with no participation in the League Fundraiser.
