A single check should be sent, along with the transmittal sheet, showing number of players and coaches registered, as well as other necessary information. Please do not send individual player checks as this can become very confusing and expensive if they do not clear. If you have any questions please call David Melendy at 865-771-3038. Click on the link at the bottom to download the Transmittal Sheet.

 

There can be additional fees due to the league if you:

a.     Use US Cellular for practice or home games. The cost to you for each usage period is $20.00. If you use Cellular for your home games you will be responsible for paint expense as well (TBD). I will line the fields each week at no charge to the league.

b.     If you have Bob Bratta schedule referees for your home games through the season. This fee is $40.00 per team and is paid directly to him. A transmittal form accompanies your payment. This form available at sign-up meeting or can be downloaded below.

 

Registrations:

Due to late entries for the past several seasons we have been forced to send out abbreviated schedules and have had to make changes to the schedule after its initial printing. Teams have had to be moved from one division to another, forfeits issued, and many unhappy parents and coaches who cannot make the necessary arrangements for the games until the last minute. As a result, a minimum of $500 must be submitted on or before the registration due date as posted on the Important Dates page. This will enter you into the league. A team may follow up with the balance and their roster within a 10 day grace period, but failure to comply with the registration due date could result in your team being omitted from the league.

 

You may register your team by downloading the registration MS Excel file below. (Note: please download the file, do not open it in your browser window). Once this file is completed, please send the completed file via email attachment to Alan Devan at Registration@smmss.net Remember to make sure that you include the t-shirt sizes of all players and coaches registered, and that the quantities match the numbers sent on the transmittal form. Managers do not receive a T- shirt unless ordered and paid for separately. In addition, it is required that the information requested on the team registration form for Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Managers, and Players must be completed for your registration to be accepted.

 

Background Screening:

Beginning in 2018 all Coaches and Assistant Coaches will be required to register for a background screening. This is being done to protect those working with minors in a position of authority and to protect the players. SMMSS takes this very seriously and has partnered with Sports Ngin Verify, a SportsEngine FCRA-compliant company to handle all background screenings. With Sport Ngin Verify, all of the information collected for screening purposes is encrypted and sent securely to the screening provider. At that point, they will be conducting your background check. All of your information is held in the safest manner possible. No one within Sport Ngin, or any other company has access to your background check. Sport Ngin collects applicant's authorization and disclosure for background screening only.

 

It will be necessary for ALL Coaches, Assistant Coaches to register for the background screening using the link provided. Any person that will have significant direct contact with players during practice and/or games must be listed as a Coach or Assistant Coach. The background screening is good for one year. If this is the first time you are registering as a coach or assistant coach with SMMSS this year, you will need to create an account to begin the process.

Necessary Forms:

The Waiver of Liability and Medical Release, Code of Sportsmanship and Behavior, and Concussion forms must be completed and signed before any player is authorized to practice or play in this league. The registration file MUST have indicated the execution of all required forms before it will be accepted and processed. You can download the forms below. The team manager must keep the completed forms on hand at each game. Please see the Concussion Policy web page for the necessary forms. Concussion policy is state law and will be strictly enforced.
