For all you qualified softball fans, check www.softball.org for position
summary and minimum requirements.  Salary range $35,000- $46,000.  I didn't
know there were 80,000 teams in the Junior Olympic Program.  Let's say
$200/team, if my math is correct that's 16 million US Dollars.  Hmmmm!!  ASA
could probaly pay a little more if that person could get us back on top.
Anyone know where the money is being spent?

80,000 must be a misprint, that would be an average of 1600 per state.  8,000
must be more like it.  Last dollar figure I saw to register a team with ASA in
FL was $10.

>Registration fees, ASA sponsored seminars, clinics, qualifiers.  They are not

free, an estimate or guesstimate at best.   You really missed the point
however.  Think about it a little more and see if you can come up with an
intelligent question. Hint, call you local ASA commissioner and find out more
about it's fiscal and budgetary policy.  If you know, please educate me
asapajo.

Sorry, but over 80,000 teams is correct!  Southern California alone has about
4,000 teams.

I think I understood Ed's point, but in areas where NSA or AFA registration is
stronger, it seems that ASA has adjusted the registration pricing to a level
that the market will bear. If it is indeed only $10 in FL, it makes sense as
they are quite strong with the NSA in that part of the world.
For that matter, the majority of the country may be substantially less than
what we pay in CA for ASA registration.
But 4000 teams in So Cal alone? I would like to see a classification breakdown
of these teams. My guess is that not all of them are Girl's Fastpitch. So why
should we, as Girl's Fastpitch supporters, be entitled to all of the monies
collected for these 4000 teams?

It would be interesting to see a comprehensive listing and general accounting
or financial statement from ASA. If memory serves correctly, they are a
non-profit organization. Shouldn't any team/club/league be entitled to this
information upon payment of their fees so they can see where the money goes? I
know I have never seen one or been offered this statement......

Remember that the numbers include all 'JO" teams which is both rec and travel.

The current figures are not out yet.  But ASA does register a lot of JO
teams-but not for the fees that were stated.  Penna registered approximately
5600 last year.

The non profit laws require the Organization to provide a financial
accounting to all interested parties upon their request. They re allowed to
charge a small fee for copies and administrative duties but this usually
amounts to only $5.00 dollars or so. Generally this request needs to be made
in writing to the organization. This goes for the national office as well as
the metro/state associations and also the leagues and individual teams that
are incorporated as non profit.
