Select personal or other so Paypal does not collect a fee.
Put your team name and division in the subject or memo field.
**FIELD DEPOSIT?! - Yes, field deposit. It is not optional. Because some teams do a really crap job of cleaning up after themselves. Here's how this is going to work: Whatever field your team ends up on at the end of each day has to be spic and span. Bottle caps, fruit peels, abandoned smelly socks, wads of used athletic tape, etc... must all be picked up and thrown out. That includes the far sideline if there is no other team using it. If another team left a mess, you can report them, but you still have to clean up the sideline. If teams are sharing the sideline they are both responsible for the whole sideline. If you are worried about whether you did a good enough job and want to make sure you get your $150 deposit back, get the TD or other designated tourney staff to do a 'checkout' at the end of each day. Tourney staff will have noted which teams are using which fields and sidlelines at the end of both Saturday and Sunday. If a team leaves a mess on either day and they did not get checked out, then we keep the money and it goes toward DiscNY's youth development programs. Field deposits will be refunded by end of day the Monday after Sectionals. If another team reports that your team left a mess, your field deposit is subject to forfeit. We hope this will encourage all players to be good field citizens.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: We need help lining the fields. If you could pass along our call for volunteers that would be much appreciated. (We need folks from about 10/11am until 4pm or so the Friday before Sectionals. Lunch and drinks provided. :)
