Game Fees

No one document exists that explicitly calls out what THSLL Member School Programs get in return for the fees they pay to the THSLL and SWLOA.  However, THSLL Member School Programs get the League, a 501c3 not for profit organization that has made possible boys high school lacrosse in the State of Texas for 24 years.  That includes the organization, management, and oversight of the THSLL Season including scheduling of games, tournaments, and championships, and associated SWLOA official assignments, the oversight and management of the League and its Membership, including eligibility and code of conduct enforcement, and management of all the Federal and State Reporting requirements for a 501c3. 

The THSLL Rulebook and TSLA, Inc. bylaws (available on www.thsll.org under the League Rules link under Site Navigation) define the totality of the Board and the League what is done on behalf of the Membership.  A THSLL Member School Program representative is part of the budget approval which includes the fees and reflects where the Board plans to distribute the fees.  
Through www.thsll.org, and assigned usernames and passwords, we allow our THSLL Member School Program representatives to enter and submit their team information and game information, and to make modifications up to the cutoff date voted on by the Membership.  For management, quality control, and audit purposes we do not allow THSLL Member School Programs to modify their game information and/or schedules online after the cutoff date, instead requiring them to contact the State Administrator, via email and telephone for changes and additions. 

The THSLL is in the third year of a three-year contract, and is in partnership, with the SWLOA for League officiating and the scheduling software and scheduling process.
