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 $25.00. 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.



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 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 (Updated Feb 2019):

Beginning in 2019 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 Knox County to handle all background screenings. Knox County requires all coaches that utilizes Knox County facilities to complete their background check. SMMSS and its team utilize several Knox County parks. The background check is $18.50 paid online during the background check application and is good for two years. Anyone that has completed a Knox County background check for any other sport within the past two years would not need another one for SMMSS. Since all of the background checks go through Knox County, I MUST receive a list of your coaches by the date listed under Important Dates. This is not optional, and you will not be permitted on the practice field or games if we do not have your name to verify the background check.


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 two years. All coaches must complete our background check through SSCI which is located on our website then click on the link Looking for Sports information and you will see the background check link.
