Our By-Laws and Operating Rules allow for the Conference to participate in the All Star National Championships as a self-funded team only. The rationale at the time this provision was incorporated into the rules was that the 8th Grade All Star team benefits only a very small percentage of the total number of Blackstone Valley participants (less than 1%) and also a small percentage of the eligible 8th grade participants (less than 8%). As such, the team needs to be self-funded.

The deposit of $500.00 is due on the first day of practice after the travel team selection is made (second Monday in November). Payment can be made in cash, money order, or credit card.

The second payment of $350.00 will be due on the third Monday in November and any remaining balance is due by November 30. The remaining balance will be determined by the number of donations received at that point plus the amount of fundraising we’ve been able to do. Cash, money orders, or credit cards will be accepted for the second and final payments.

Please check with your Association to determine what type of fundraising they will assist with.

Our goal is to reduce the cost as much as possible, however, that requires everyone’s help in fundraising.
