I have a six year old little girl who wants to play softball.
We're not sure if she'll even like it but like any parents would, we're happy to let her try it out and support her efforts.
We live in the city of Clearwater but our home is not zoned in the city, we are considered county which basically means our taxes are lower and we do not have access to the city trash service.
What it also means is that if your six year old wants to play little league, you have to first purchase a Clearwater rec card for $192 (*it used to cost $30*) on top of the little league fees.
According to the folks at the Long Center this fee is set in stone, there are no exceptions or scholarships.
This does not make little league accessible to any ~normal~ family not zoned in the city.
Oh! and additionally, we HAVE to play in Clearwater because of our address. Dunedin has no fees but because of little league territories, we are not able to play in any other city.
Thanks for any assistance,
