During the off-season, our registration platform, Blue Sombrero, switched to SportsConnect. With the change came a change in how their services are paid for. Now they charge a $3/transaction service fee. This applies to all transactions, including one-time payments and payment plan payments. Each payment of the payment plan options will incur a $3/transaction fee. If you are a travel player and you choose the three payments payment plan, then you will have a total of $9 in service fees split between each payment.

The $3 transaction service fee goes directly to SportsConnect and does not pay for any fees from CSC.
