The Stewartstown Young Vets program strives to maintain the best possible environment for players, coaches, administration personnel, and parents.  Below are some guidelines to help parents and players to understand what our program expects during the season both on and off the field.  Failure to follow these expectations may result in termination from the team.  Please read and acknowledge these guidelines prior to joining our program.  

Player & Parent Agreement

The Stewartstown Young Vets is a travel/tournament sport organization. The mission of the Young Vets program is to provide a quality baseball experience and help advance players to the next level both on and off the field. This PLAYER/PARENT AGREEMENT will help you understand our expectationsand will be strictly enforced both on and off the field.

In exchange for the opportunity to play baseball for The Stewartstown Young Vets, players and parents/guardians agree to abide by the terms and conditions of this AGREEMENT in its entirety. Failure to comply with the terms and conditions of this AGREEMENT in its entirety can lead to dismissal from the program. In cases of dismissal, players and parents/guardians agree that they are NOT eligible for a refund of fees. Players and Parents/Guardians may appeal a dismissal to the President of the Young Vets Program. Appeals must be made in writing within thirty (30) days of receiving notification of dismissal.

This agreement also means that the players and parents/guardians understand that they are fully responsible for the total amount owed by each player on the team regardless of the number of games they play. This includes if a player misses games due to injury, being dismissed from the team, coaches’ discretion, voluntarily missing games due to vacations etc., and/or voluntarilyquitting the team regardless of when. Each player is required to make any payments in a timely manner in accordance with our program directors/treasury officers. Any money paid is non-refundable regardless of situation either personally or team specific. This includes cases in which a tournament, league game, practice, etc. is cancelled regardless of reason. Team expenses are divided evenly among each individual family. Tournaments will be funded by each individual family evenly via direct payments to the organization and/or fundraising efforts. Each family is expected to engage in and assist with any fundraising efforts that may be presented to the organization via our program directors/fundraising committee.

Players and parents/guardians agree and accept the risks that come with playing a competitive sport such as baseball, including the possible risk of injury. In the event of an injury, regardless of where, when, or how it happens, the player will still be responsible for the individual financial responsibility. The Young Vets Organization does NOT collect more money than it needs to cover the overall seasonal expenses. Due to this fact, we are unable to refund any monies that are calculated/paid from each family. However, in the event of an injury or any unforeseen circumstance that causes a player to miss a significant amount of time, players/parents can submit a claim to the Young Vets President who will review the claim and work with individual families in good faith to find a solution.

There may be circumstances where practices, games, tournaments etc. will be cancelled due to weather related activity or other unforeseen events. This is simply the nature of outdoor sports. The Young Vets Organization does NOT get reimbursed for any games/tournaments that are cancelled due to weather. We do our best to try and reschedule games/tournaments that are cancelled; however, it is not guaranteed.
