Answer: It is common across the industry for service providers to charge fees. The benefit of the Sports Connect pricing model is that it is $3 fee per transaction, as opposed to a $3 per player per activity fee (which is generally what is charged by other providers). This means parents who are signing up multiple children will only need to pay the service fee once upon checkout. Please note that with automatic recurring billing plans the service fee will be charged per transaction. For paper registrations with check or cash payment, the $3 service fee will still apply and will be deducted from weekly disbursement to the league.
The credit card fee on the Sports Connect platform is 3.4%. The 3.4% processing is a lower rate than the standard 3.99% rate offered to other leagues.
A credit card processing fee is standard across all similar platforms.
The credit card processing rate is paid by the local league, as it is with your existing account.
