2020-2021 LLD REGISTRATION

LLD registration is now open for all divisions, except for Seniors. The Senior season is to be determined at a later date. Registration closes on October 26th at 12am. There will be no late registration allowed.   When you register your child the system will automatically place them in the correct division based on their birthdate. Due to Covid restrictions and capacity limitations, only residents of Lumberton will be allowed to sign up. This rule DOES NOT apply to out of town players that played last season.  If you are an out of town player from last season, please email: Eric.foxlld@gmail.com to register.

In order to help with the issue of capacity, the Mini-Minor and Minor divisions will play during the months of December and January and the Junior and Major divisions will play in January and February. There will be no tryouts this year.

Mini-Minors -$85.00

Minors - $125.00

REFUNDS

No refunds will be issued after the close of registration except under the following conditions:

- You submit a note from your child's physician that indicates your child is unable to play due to a medical issue.   The amount of the refund will be based on expenses incurred up to the date of your child being withdrawn from the program. 

OR

- In the event that the Little Dribblers program had to be canceled due to rule changes made by the  CDC and/or TEA  regarding Covid, refunds will be given; however, the amount of the refund will be based on expenses incurred up to the date of your child being withdrawn from the program.

INSURANCE

The registration system offers participants the ability to purchase insurance from a 3rd party.  Due to the constant changes with Covid, it is strongly encouraged that you purchase insurance if you want to guarantee a full refund.
