Player Contract

Hounds  Baseball

2022-2023 Season Overview 10U-14U

18-game league plus exhibition games and including 4-6 tournaments

  • Typically one out of town tournament (possibly none out of town)

    • In an effort to keep rising costs down, and because of the uncertainty of the number of  tournaments requiring hotel stays, parents will be responsible for the Head Coach’s hotel room fees. This will be split evenly among the team.

      • For example: Coaches total room fee is $240. There are 12 players on the team. Each player’s family would owe the coach $20 during the weekend. Coaches are responsible for their own collections.

    • As the majority of out-of-town tournaments are Stay-to-Play, it is expected that all teams will comply with this policy. Stay-to-Play is defined as a tournament in which any team traveling more than 75 miles (this distance varies from tournament to tournament) is required to secure lodging in an official hotel within their team’s group block in order to participate in the tournament. Non-compliance with this policy may result in a penalty fee being assessed to the Club.

      • Hounds Baseball Club’s Group Housing Coordinator will establish these group blocks for any out-of-town tournament that Hounds Teams participate in.

        • Every effort will be made to ensure that the hotel is of a high standard, close in proximity to the ballfields, and a reasonable nightly rate.

      • It is expected that all families participating in the tournament WILL book their rooms before the expiration of the group block in order to ensure compliance with any Tournament policies.

      • Any fees assessed to the Hounds due to a team’s non-compliance with Stay-to-Play policies will be the responsibility of the offending Team to pay.

        • It will be the decision of the team whether to split the penalty fees evenly among all families or only those in non-compliance.

      • While we understand that booking a hotel room on one’s own or using points can sometimes mean a lower nightly rate, there are many reasons to book with the group. These hotel blocks mean that the entire team can stay together facilitating group bonding and unity as well as ensuring that hotels are within a reasonable distance to the fields and that hotels will not be sold out leading up to the tournament. Hounds Baseball Club thanks you in advance for your cooperation with all Tournament Policies.
