DLL Field Improvement Fee: For New players to Darien Spring Little League - $100
Increased participation in the baseball and softball programs has put enormous pressure on all of our facilities. In order to continue to maintain and improve McGuane Park and to ensure the highest quality playing conditions at all of the other facilities that we use on an on going basis, the Field Improvement Fee will be assessed for first time registrants in Spring Darien Little League (returning players are not required to pay this fee, and players who played TBall last season who are repeating Kindergarten this year also do not need to pay this fee a second time). If a player has played Summer Ball or Fall Ball but has not played in the Spring season he or she is considered a New Player.
The maximum field improvement fee per family is $200.
Board of Education Field Use Fee - $25
The BOE has instituted a mandatory fee of $25 per player, per sport, per season to use the Darien school fields. This fee will be added to your registration fee.
Darien Parks and Recreation Field Usage Fee - $5
The Director of Parks and Recreation has instituted a $5 fee per player, per sport, per season. This fee will be added to your registration.
Regular Voting Members (Optional $10 fee)
Darien Little League offers the opportunity for parents to be more involved with the program. The optional regular membership fee gives a parent the opportunity to actively participate in and influence the decisions that affect the League as a whole with a vote at the Annual Meeting. The next Annual Meeting will be held in September.
