Players are responsible for purchasing their own batting helmets (must be solid navy), helmet stickers, belts, extra pants, athletic socks, and molded cleats.

The team fee does not cover all of our team’s expenses. Additional team costs are met by fundraisers and sponsorships. The 2021 9U Bombers have already raised enough money to ensure all expected expenses will be covered and to create an emergency fund for unexpected expenses.

If for some reason, the season is affected by cancellations due to the Coronavirus, the team will refund relevant portions of the player fee that have not been spent, committed, or reallocated.
