Players will have the option of Full Payment (due at signing) or Monthly Payments (due on the 1st of each month). If full payment is not received before the 5th of each month a 10% late charge will be assessed. If full payment is not received by the 15th of each month - the player will be suspended from tournament play. If payment falls 30 days behind - the player will be removed from our program.
Players are required to attend at least 75% of all practices. Failure to comply with this standard will result in dismissal from our program.
During both practice and games, players are only allowed to wear uniforms either issued or approved by NBA. Failure to comply with these standards will result in dismissal from our program.
Players are asked to communicate directly with their coach. Parents, please allow sufficient notice if your son will be unable to attend a scheduled practice or event.
There will not be a set requirement for playing time. Players will earn their spot in the lineup with ability, participation, and development. The standard will be "batting 9" regardless of pool play or bracket play.
Travel and accommodations will be the player's responsibility. On occasion, UA Elite will offer mass transportation; however, all travel and accommodations should be prearranged.
All members will have access to Norfolk Baseball Academy; however, players are required to schedule any individual workouts prior to arriving.
Players will participate in several community events throughout the year. All players will be required to attend.
NBA will not require fundraising by players. Individuals or a collective group may elect to fundraise to help offset their player fees. Panhandling of any kind is prohibited.
NBA players will not guest play for other organizations. If a player is scheduled to be off, chances are he needs a break.
