Online Registration will begin on February 1st, 2017 on our website www.lakevillebaseball.org. LBA Executive Board has set the fees for all of the programs in 2017 and these are outlined below.
LBA has gone through an extensive budget process to ensure that the organization is setting the proper fees for the players, and that the organization has the funds to continue operations and continue to improve our programs. The budget process undertaken by the LBA board has attempted to determine the actual costs to play baseball for each program and each player. Many of these costs are difficult to determine, but a tremendous amount of effort has been put into this process in order to determine the costs to play baseball in our community in an effort to plan effectively for the future.
