If you are unable to attend, please contact David no later than Motza’ei Shabbos, January 9, 2010, to make alternative arrangements and ensure you son’s placement. Regarding this year’s registration, please note the following:

Although the registration fee has remained unchanged for several years, substantial increases in both the JCLL fees and our equipment expenses required us raise the registration fee to $100 for AY members and $125.00 for non-members. All JCLL membership and participation costs are included.

The registration and waiver forms may be downloaded here
or obtained directly from David Kirschner.

All members and returning non-members registered by January 10 will have first priority for team placement. After January 10, open community registration will begin. Anyone registering after January 10 will be accommodated on a first-come, first-serve, basis only but placement WILL NOT be guaranteed. All players, members and non-members who played on an AY team last season will have first priority to return. Members will have first priority for all available roster spaces. All requests for specific team placement and/or placement with friends will be considered. Registration/placement, however, is subject to team availability and cannot be guaranteed.

By registering, EVERY player is making a commitment to attend ALL games. Parents are encouraged to attend and urged, if possible, to assist in managing/coaching duties. When registering, please indicate whether you are available to manage, coach or supervise practices (to be determined by coaches but are usually held on Friday afternoons). In the event a team does not have a manager/coach, that team will not be fielded.

The uniforms will be the same as in previous years. Pants will be a required part of the official AY uniform for several reasons. First, JCLL rules strictly prohibited shorts. Second, denim or cotton trousers are not conducive to running. And finally, the nylon stretch material is far more comfortable while wearing the required athletic supporter and cup. It is recommended, although not required, that players wear shoes with rubber cleats.

Uniform costs:
Jersey - $21.50* (includes last name and number; if you have a jersey from last year, please tell us your number. If you are entering a new division and have a jersey with a number that is already taken, you will be asked to purchase a new jersey)
Pants - $17.50*
Hat - $5.00*
* based on last year’s manufacturing cost

If you have any questions, concerns or wish to make alternative registration arrangements, please contact David Kirschner at djkirschner@verizon.net, 718-618-3647 (office) or 718-619-3637 (cell).
