During the season, each team will be competing to win donations for their Sponsor Organization. The amount each Sponsor earns during the season is determined based on team’s results during the season. Basically, if your team wins a game, places in the Top 4 during the regular season, or does well in the playoffs, then your charity will receive a larger donation from Durham Softball at the end of the season. For details, check out the details of our Sponsor Donation Pool.

You do not need to have any type of previous affiliation with any of these organizations in order to play for their team. You can choose the play for any team you’d like, for any reason. We hope you’ll learn a little about each sponsor’s mission and find a cause that you fully support so you are excited about helping them out every week on the ball field.

If you have any questions, please ask!

Team Registration

If you have at least 13 players who can commit to playing softball on Sundays and think you can field a team of 10+ players every week, you should sign up as a Team.

  1. Select the number of jerseys your team will need in each size. Your total should add up to 16 jerseys.
  2. Choose the order of preference for your Team Sponsor selections. Assignments will be made in the order the registrations are received. You are not guaranteed to have your choices.
  3. Please note your teammates’ names and email addresses on your order under the “Order Notes” section at Checkout prior to proceeding to PayPal.

Final Team Assignments will be made on March 17, or ASAP within 48 hours of the final Spring registration deadline on March 15, 2019. If we are unable to match you with one of your Top 4 charity preferences, we will contact your Team Captain by email to discuss options.

Team Assignments will always prioritize keeping groups together over playing for a specific team, so you will always get to play with your friends regardless of what charity you are assigned. We hope all of our charities are considered worthy of your time and effort on the field.

If you want Free Agents added to your Team, please contact us and we’ll try to accommodate your request.

Signing Up as a Team, but Paying Individually

The cheapest option is to pay $750 + Tax in one transaction. However, if your team wants to sign up individually, please have your teammates add your Team Captain’s name at Checkout when they pay for their individual registration. We will group everyone together by your Captain’s name and make sure you all play on the same team. Fair warning – if 16 Players want to sign up by themselves, your team will pay $960, total, for a $750 item. That is an expensive convenience fee, but the extra funds will be used to maintain our field and certainly go to a good cause.

Refund Policy

We promise a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Because your refund will be reducing our Donation Pool, we hope you’ll give us a chance to fix any problems before it gets to that point. However, you can still request a refund for any reason. You will have to actually give a reason (so we can try to fix it for the next player), but any reason will be accepted. After the start of the season, prorated refunds will be honored if you are not satisfied with our league for any reason.
