Q – Are any of these FAQs different?
A – I spend somewhere between 30 seconds and a full “work day” updating these, so read on to find out for yourself how long I spent this time.
Q – You had a third kid, what were you thinking?
A – I don’t know, I guess I hate sleep. #YetAnotherBabyTibbs really did happen on Valentine’s Day this year and I’ve got to say, it was a great way to get out of scoring games for the Winter Season. Don’t worry, I’ll be back haunting the sidelines and calling you out on twitter in the Spring!
Q – So where we playing?
A – WE ARE BACK IN CAMBRIDGE! The MLK Jr School and Kennedy-Longfellow School are back in rotation to round out our schools in Newton and Somerville. Check out the Locations page for a list. Please make sure to note the location of your desired league before signing up through the sign-ups page (https://www.cacbasketball.com/signup-home/).
Q – I assume you’ve got some Covid Policies in place?
A – You know it. Check them out here: https://www.cacbasketball.com/covid-policies/
Q – Any league fees changes?
A – With limited spots and leagues, individual league fees are $200 this season and team fees are $1500. ALL LEAGUE FEES ARE DUE by FRIDAY APRIL 22nd. No rate changes for the Spring 2022 season.
Q – I thought I saw something on Twitter about the Multi-League Discount coming back?
A- You’re right, silly me! If you’re playing in multiple Draft Leagues you receive a $50 discount ($350 instead of $400 to play in two leagues). I’m thrilled we were able to bring that back to reward our most dedicated CACers for coming back time and again and putting up with Harry’s rambling in B Draft, 5v5, and Franchise. Choose “Multi-League Discount” when you go to pay in MindBody and you automatically get the discount at check-out.
Q – How do I make sure my credit from the cancelled Winter 2020 season can be used?
A – Yes we are STILL honoring any unused Winter 2020 credits. If you’re an individual, the credit is loaded into your MBO account and will be automatically deducted from the fee when you pay. Please don’t give me too much credit for how easy it is to collect on some cash from 2 years ago, I had a lot of time to figure it out. If you’re a team captain, please reach out to me prior to paying and I will set up a credit in your account
Q – If a League doesn’t happen, what steps do I take to get a refund?
A – You’ll be refunded within 5 business days of the league being cancelled.
Q – How much are jerseys?
A – Players new to the league need to pay an additional $10 per jersey when picking them up at CAC (215 First St – Cambridge). All players are required to wear CAC jerseys to games. For anyone who wants to purchase an additional or new jersey, the cost is also $10.
Q – I’ve been playing for a few seasons now, can you just hook me up with a free jersey?
A – Sorry, to control inventory and avoid raising league fees for everyone (for one more season anyway), anyone who needs a jersey needs to pay $10.
Q – I constantly ruin/lose/leave my jersey behind at the gym. What can you do for me?
A – Nothing, I can do nothing. I can’t even do anything for myself, come on guy.
- Make sure that you wash your jersey in cold water, not hot
- Do not put your jersey in the dryer
- Have you tried building a time machine to go back to 2019, find your jersey and leave your past self a cryptic note about 2020? Not too specific that it ruins the space-time continuum, but just clever enough that you give yourself a heads up about what’s to come.
The dryer (and the 2020s) is the cause of every ruined CAC jersey ever. This will never change. Simply hang your jersey up to dry (or ask your parental unit/significant other to do it for you) and it will last for years and years. I have still been hitting the peloton pretty hard the last few months and the first chance I get I’m going to squeeze into my vintage 2005 CRFC jersey. Then I’m going to try on the old high school one too. To me there’s nothing like the maroon of the Quaboag Cougars to really get the competitive juices flowing. That and the Christian rock I had to listen to back then. I was a weird kid…
Q – I want to pay as an individual, can I do that online?
A – If you’re playing in one of our Draft leagues you’ll be able to do online.
Q – Follow-up question, does that mean I can MY pay part of my team fee online instead of paying my captain, right?
A – That’s still incorrect, but thank you for asking that very important question. If you are part of a team that is entering a non-draft league, someone must pay the full balance of the league fee online (or in person at C.A.C.), we do not accept partial payments for teams. Everyone has Venmo now, stop ignoring your captain’s request, the notification is RIGHT THERE. I know I still have a red dot from 2017 from my sister trying to collect on beer money for beer she willingly gave me! You can’t send a venmo request for that a week later. She’s never seeing that $48 and I’m never getting rid of that notification.
Q – I’m able to pay the team league fee online, but I’m not the team captain, can I do that?
A – Yes, someone other than the team captain can pay the league fee for the team. To avoid confusion and confirm the fee is taken care of, please send an email to CACBasketball@gmail.com to confirm your team name and captain’s name after processing the order.
Q – I paid the fee online, is the spot for my team saved?
A – You must first check with me (CACBasketball@gmail.com) to make sure there is room in the league you want to sign-up in, before paying the league fee. As always, in order to hold a team spot, a team name and full roster list (names and emails) are also needed to hold it.
Q – A “Billing Information” pop-up appears when I log-in, do I have to store my information online?
A – No, the only time you must enter your billing information is at check-out.
