As we wrap up another great season of SWBL Basketball, we have sent out credit checks to those communities that have a credit on their accounts. We are still waiting on payment from a few communities, so if you owe money, please have those payments issued immediately, to avoid further finance charges. If you do not receive your refund check by March 28th, 2015, please check the following possible reasons, prior to contacting us:
1. We will not issue refund checks to individual teams, if the community as a whole, still has a balance due. We realize that some teams/groups will run events for their communities and are possibly entitled to the hosting credits. However, at this time, SWBL does not distinguish between individual teams in accounting, and therefore will not issue checks to teams, if the community still has a balance due. Once receive all payments from that community, we can then issue a refund check back.
2. Organization Profile is not complete: As the CL of your community, you will need to log in to the SWBL website and update your Organization Profile. This will determine who the credit check will be issued to and the address it will be sent to. No checks will be sent without this information updated.
Changes Coming: One of the enhancements we are looking to make to our website for the 2015-16 season is the ability to have multiple CLs, or accounts, under one community. This will allow an individual team to control their hosting credits and entry fees without the need to go through a central Community Liaison. During this summer, our website will be periodically down, as these programming changes are being made. In addition, we are looking at developing a mobile site for communities to enter scores for events, live and on-site, so that all information is instantaneous. We are excited about both of these options and will keep you updated as we learn more about the progress.
Register for Next Year: We anticipate having the website ready to accept new registrations for the 2015-16 season on, or around April 5th, 2015. At this time, all rosters will roll over to the next highest grade and waivers will be transferred forward. Coaches will need to re-log into the system after this date and assign themselves to their team. Coaches will also be able to see available play dates as we plant the early seeds for Season 5 of SWBL. We will keep everyone posted on these dates.
Clothing: We have some SWBL clothing available for your teams as we look to reduce inventory. In the near future, coaches will receive an email, with an order form, on which they can order clothing for their teams. This will be a first-come/first-get opportunity until inventory is gone. More information to follow.
