The Spring Travel registration fee is $195 and refundable should a player not be selected for a Spring Travel team.
Use of Reserve Players
The GSLW Reserve Player policy allows a player to register as a reserve for a given season for $50, which is non-refundable, without any guarantee that the player will be called in for any game.
The benefits of this policy are:
1. It allows us to enter teams into leagues when we don’t have enough full-time players to field the typical number of 12 per team, which would otherwise give us no option except to cut players
2. It provides backup to a team in the event that a player is injured, or is unable to make a given game
3. It provides the reserve player the opportunity to stay connected to a team in a given season where she may not be able to make the full commitment due to their participation in other activities, which we encourage all players to do
Travel coaches manage their roster for a given game based upon the league philosophy for that season. Playing time rotations will be based on the ability of each player on their roster, regardless of whether the player is a reserve or full time.
Our objective is to provide travel team opportunities to as many players as possible and because of the reasons noted, there are circumstances where those opportunities would be limited without the participation of a reserve player.
