What are Payment Plans
Payment plans allow captains the ability to split their team registration fee over multiple payments.
During Early Bird, fees are split into 3 payments (20% at time of registration). Once the Early Bird period is over the registration fee is split over two equal payments. The final payment is not due until one week after your league begins.

Why is Tiered Pricing Gone?
Initially, the primary goal was to receive registrations earlier. Teams were rewarded for registering earlier by receiving a lower price, while the ESSC was able to better harmonize facilities, divisions, and schedules.
Two years into tiered pricing, we have observed some substantial disadvantages to the program.
- In order to receive a slightly lower price Captains were forced to carry a significant charge on their credit card for weeks before collecting from teammates
- Many players found the program to be confusing because they had to remember several different deadline dates and pricing changes
- Players who signed up later in the registration cycle were punished by having to pay a higher price
These factors, coupled with constant feedback from our players, caused us to re-imagine a better payment system for our players.
