NEW Practice ONLY- Costs: 12u $300, 13s-14s $400, 15s-17s $500......This is a 1 time fee payable in full at time of acceptance, with no prorating for starting anytime after or missing any practices. Price includes a backpack and 2 practice shirts. We will place your daughter by age first then skill level second. Placement will be with either a regular club team practice or a seperate practice, at our discretion. Practices offered are for a minimum of 3 months (or comparable to the age of your daughter and the team that she could have played with if on a regular club team), up to 5 months at the clubs discretion. This program does not include any weekend tournaments or competitions but "could" include scrimmages at the coaches discretion. This program is offered strictly as a way to get regular practices in a team environment at the club level to learn the basics and fundamentals of the sport, work on skill type essentials: passing, hitting, serving overhand, team rotations, etc., to progress on already learned skills (for older or more skilled athletes), without the committments of joining a regular club team and all the time and financial committments involved with those teams.

***Costs for all teams are for the Regular Season ONLY (ending mid March - mid April, Spiker teams finish in mid to late March) and DO NOT include any extended season play beyond the Lone Star Classic in Dallas such as the LS Regionals, AAU or Junior Olympic Nationals. Costs include player registration fees, tournament fees, equipment, uniforms (this year also includes a practice t-shirt), coaches salaries, coaches stipends and gym rentals. Costs DONOT include, the scorekeeper/referee clinics, any travel expenses (travel, hotels, airfare, etc.), meals or replacement for lost or stolen uniforms. ALL payments made are NON-refundable. This is also explained in the SA HORNET Club Manual which will be given to every player registered with us and is for viewing at each try-out. We will NOT extend payments beyond Feb.1 2017, everyone will be done paying their club fees by Feb. 1, 2017. If you decide to join after our try-outs, your payment schedule will be different and adjusted accordingly, so it will be imperative that payments are made on time, on the 1st of each month to avoid any participation interruptions. To help with monthly payment reminders, this year SA Hornet WILL send out payment notifications at the end of each month as a reminder about your monthly 1st payment coming due. Additionally, SA HORNET has no problem extending tournaments beyond the scheduled Regular Season tournament schedule, but can be discussed and will come with extra fees over and above the posted payment schedule per player. Factors considered are: tournaments offered, costs of tournaments involved, coaches availability, coaches salary, coaches stipends, gym availability for practices, gym costs and number of players fully committing and ALL participating being in good financial standing and able to make financial committment to play in the extended season. FINAL decisons and costs will be at clubs discretion.

***ALL Local-Regional-National teams are offered a minimum 9 tournament schedule & there is NO guarantee to any more than 9 for the season.  SPIKER teams are offered 6 total and 17s/18s SHOWCASE teams are offered a minimum of 8. Factors like (but not limited to): number of players on a team, availability of players & ALL players staying in good financial standing, will affect the tournament schedule and could result in fewer than the minimum tournaments offered.  The club reserves the right to change/add/delete ANY schedule at its discretion.  Teams mostly affected will be Regional & National teams as the bigger more expensive tournaments have to be paid for months in advance and will be the first ones to be looked at for change or deletion. As such, tournaments like the Tour, Cross-Court Classic, Lone Star Classic and Lone Star Regionals are ones to be looked at for change or deletion. WE will NOT travel with fewer than 8 players to any of these events without consulting the teams coaches and parents first. Any team with fewer than 10 players (whether at the beginning or towards the end) may incur additional adjusted fees to cover any players needed to get to 10 - this will NOT be imposed without speaking to the team, coaches and parents first and will be thoroughly discussed.

A 5% discount can be taken for any payments that are made in full by the first scheduled payment AFTER the initial deposit. The first 20 paid in full ONLY. NO discounts offered for Spiker or Practice Only teams.
We accept cash, checks, cashiers checks, money orders, an ACH auto debit payment option (please ask about this method of payment if interested) and we may also be offerering a PayPal Payment option (a 3% service fee will be added to each PayPal payment transaction). We will NO LONGER accept VISA & MC payments but for those with iphone or Android phones we will also offer an electronic text payment option which we will send out for immediate payment to pay using your phone. We will offer these forms of payment options, however, if paying monthly by check, we will ask for post dated checks for the entire season (that we will file away to make your monthly payments for you and to avoid any participation suspensions. Additionally a 5% discount may be taken off the total fee for families with 2 or more playing with us. This 5% is in addition to the 5% offered if wanting to pay in full AFTER an initial deposit is made and is NOT part of the total balance. Ex: $1000 + $1000 = $2000, a 5% discount is $100, balance is now $1900, pay initial deposits for both children (assume $400ea), new balance is $1100, you may now take the 5% for paying the balance of $1100 in full.
