Other Important Registration Information

This season, we will be keeping the registration system open until the closing date mentioned in the above section.

 

Registration does not guarantee a place on a team. Number of teams depends on availability of volunteer parent coaches. We strongly encourage parents to volunteer to coach.

 

Wait list:  Once capacity is reached based on the number of teams we have, then the remaining registrations will be considered waitlisted. Waitlisted registrations will be taken off the wait list in order of registration based on these priorities:

  • Parents who volunteer to be a Board member or a coach
  • Siblings of existing players
  • Time-based on registration date/time

Any player who does not get placed on a team will be fully refunded the week of October 22nd. This is after the Division teams have been announced on October 21st evening.

 

Non-Parent Coaches:

We are currently looking at retaining “stipend” non-parent coaches to supplement the parent coaches if we don't get enough volunteer parent coaches to make the teams. 

If a player is drafted onto a team with a stipend non-parent coach, there will be an additional fee. The additional fee will be $100 per player for Division and $150 per player for All Net.  This fee will go to the non-parent coach to help them with the incidental costs of coaching for four months.  Each team will be responsible for the payment of the additional fees to the non-parent coach.

 

Withdrawals

Division/All Net

If you withdraw from the season prior to walk-in documentation check, we will withhold a service charge of $50. 

If you fail to attend walk-in documentation check, regardless of registration priority, we may place your player on waitlist.

If you withdraw from the season after walk-in documentation check and before Division evaluations, we will withhold a service charge of $75.

If you withdraw from the season after Division evaluations and before teams are formed, we will withhold a service charge of $100.

If you withdraw from the season after Division teams are formed, there will be no refund of fees.  After teams are formed, and we have effectively waived waitlist players to other chapters, it is very difficult to balance the teams – therefore, the penalty for withdrawing is severe.

In certain circumstances (pre-season injury, made another chapter’s all net team), we will waive the service charges.

Next Level Prep

If you withdraw from the season before teams are formed, we will withhold a service charge of $50.

If you withdraw from the season after teams are formed, there will be no refund of fees.  

Please note National NJB as a policy does not process refunds for any reason and WSJ NJB does not control National NJB.

 

All Net Tryouts: Any player who wishes to try out for All Net teams must first register for Division and attend the walk-in registration. Players who are not registered will not be allowed to tryout for All Net. Players who want to play for WSJ NJB and need a waiver will need to get one from their home chapter before attending the tryout. All Net will be available this season for grade 4 to 8 Boys, and grade 5 to 8 Girls.

 

Waiver: Any player who wishes to request a waiver for another chapter must first register with West San Jose NJB within the registration period and attend the walk-in registration. Any registrations received after registration has closed will not be considered for a waiver, except in extraordinary circumstances.  Players who we determine purposefully delay registration, so as to end up on the waitlist, or fail to register, or fail to attend walk-in documentation check will not be granted waivers to other NJB chapters (this includes players who were granted one-time waivers in prior seasons)


Volunteer: All families are expected to fulfill a volunteer commitment of 4 hours minimum for the season. If you do not wish to volunteer, there is a volunteer buyout option for $100 per player that can be selected during the registration process.

 

NOTICE TO CAMPBELL RESIDENTS

You are eligible to register in West San Jose or Saratoga chapters.  We will not process waivers to the Willow Glen or the Los Gatos chapters except in extraordinary circumstances.  WSJ has gyms in Campbell and Saratoga chapter practices at West Valley College which are both closer than the Los Gatos and Willow Glen chapter gyms.  We have numerous Cupertino residents who live closer to Foothills gyms than WSJ gyms and they are not granted waivers to Foothills.  Sectional NJB has established geographically boundaries (much like little league) which need to be observed and respected.
