ATTN: Payment changes for the 2018 Season
Last year we demoed a new product for accepting payments for team fees called https://www.ground.work. The demo was successful, and this year we will be switching over to ground.work for receiving all payments. (With the exclusion of payments made during tryouts).
Ground.work gives our league the benefits of efficiently tracking, collecting and managing team payments. In years passed managing who has paid and how much has been reliant on coaches and Jeremy to maintain that through notes, word of mouth, spreadsheets and various other tools. Every year someone’s payment would get lost or not entered into a spreadsheet correctly. As a league, we value and appreciate the significance of this amount for each player. Would won’t expect any business to “lose” or “misplace” a payment and that expectation should hold true for the MABL. By moving to Ground.work all payments will be securely managed through this site, and board members and coaches will have up-to-date real-time tracking on how much their team owes, who has paid, and who still has outstanding balances.
What this means for you as a player is a more straightforward, more confident means of paying your portion of the team fees, without having to worry about who’s holding that money, when a check will be deposited or if it will get tracked appropriately.
Each player fee is set by the team’s coach. Per Player fees will be broken into two due dates. The first payment is due upon logging into ground.work and the second payment will be due on May 3rd. You can either break these payments up or pay the full amount. Any late payments that are not paid after May 3rd will need to be paid in full. The entirety of the each team’s total fee is due before opening weekend. Any team that has not paid in full by the Friday before opening weekend will forfeit those weekend games. Games will be continued to be forfeited until the team fee has been meeting by that team.
https://www.ground.work accepts two payment options (Debit/Credit Card or Check via ACH Payment) Paying via ACH is just like writing a check and is done by entering in the accounting and routing information for your checkbook. ACH payments do not have any additional fees associated with them.
There are two ways that you can pay online. One is through the link on our website; the second is through the email notification that every registered player has received.
