Many tournaments require players to stay at the teams assigned hotel to be eligible to play. DLC does offer a Solo travel option as well. A Solo traveler is a DLC member who travels by herself to an event with the DLC staff. Each event provides different specific arrangements, being a Solo traveler means that DLC organizes travel arrangements and gets the itinerary to parents for transportation to and from the event, lodging and meal cost. This is an option for parents who want to decrease travel expenses and ensure safety with this chaperone service. Solo fees are in addition to tournament fees. Solo fees are not refundable. In the event of a family tragedy or immediate injury 50% of Solo fees will be credited toward a future event.
FUNDRAISER: DLC will hold one fundraiser. All players are required to participate. This fundraiser offsets the rising cost of tournament fees, field rental, coaches pay and administration fees.
The recruiting process is a tricky one with many twists and turns. At DLC, we are here for you every step of the way as part of your membership. We do not take responsibility for doing the work for our players, nor can we guarantee a scholarship, but we guide them along as they pursue their dream of playing in college. In as much as the player and her family want to access our staff for guidance and support, we will be available. DLC conducts a recruiting seminar each year for its players.
What you should expect from DLC is commitment, competence, professionalism as well as a laughter and fun. We will be honest – no matter what.
What we expect from you is that you let us do our job:
• Make each player better • Manage expectations • Determine who should be on what team • Support each girl in her OWN process of one day playing in college if that is her goal.
Our core values are respect, responsibility, commitment and having fun. All members can expect the DLC staff to represent and live up to these values to the best of our abilities and we will expect the same from them.
