Probably the number 1 bit of advice the AFO can give to its parents is to read and understand your registration Financial Contract. If you have any questions our Treasurer (see board tab for contact) is available to answer your questions and work through any issues you may have.
Here is a list of our most frequently asked questions. Please let us know if we need to add something to this list:
Initial Invoice payment schedule
The first monthly payments start on October 1st and go through March 1st.
What is my monthly payment for the initial invoice?
Your payment schedule is shown on your registration Financial Contract and will appear on your statement.
Paying 'Other' Invoices
You will receive additional invoices throughout the year. This will include invoices for uniforms, equipment, etc. These invoices are due within 30 days.
What are the late fees?
The late fee is $25 per occurence. Please review the Financial Contract for more details.
Families with two daughters in the organization will receive a annual credit equal to $350. Please review the Financial Contract for more details.
When is my account delinquent?
An account is considered delinquent under two circumstances. First, your monthly payment is considered late if not received by the 16th day of the month. Second, your 'other' invoices are considered delinquent if payment is not received within 30 days of the invoice date.
What happens when my account is delinquent?
If full monthly payment plus late fee is not received by the last day of the month, the player will not be allowed to practice or play with the team, or use the facility, until the account is brought current (i.e. stop-play). Failure to pay 'other' invoices within 45 days will also result in a "stop-play" standing for the player.
Please review the Financial Contract for more details.
AFO accepts cash, checks, and credit cards.
Where can I make payments?
Payments can be made by mail, drop-off at the facility drop box, or through the website.

How does someone make a donation?
A donation can be made by completing a donation form and submitting along with donation to the bookkeeper. Once accepted the bookkeeper will email or mail a donation receipt to the donor.
How does the AFO account for fundraising money?
All funds a family fundraises goes into their account to pay for bona fide softball expenses while you are a member of the organization. These funds cannot be withdrawn for cash.
What happens if I leave the organization and I stll owe money?
Unfotunately, this is where we have to be tough. All members are expected to pay their contractual obligations. In those cases where we have families who cannot meet their obligation and who will not work out a payment plan with the AFO we have no other choice than to seek legal actions.
The fee is approximately 2.50% + .30 per transaction.
If you have any questions please contact the Treasurer. Do not let a question go unanswered. This process is sometimes confusing and we want everyone to be on the same page.
