  • Roster/Release of Liability Waivers – Additions can be made up to the fifth (5th) game of the session. Parents must log in to LeagueApps (thru the NbN website) and accept the waiver/photo release. No one will be permitted to play or participate in any activity at Nothin’ but Net without electronically accepting the waiver/photo release form.  If the parent/guardian or participant refuses to sign the waiver form, the coach must inform Nothin’ but Net and the coach cannot allow the participant to play in the program or league.
  • Schedules – coaches must periodically check the website for any changes or updates and communicate them to their parents. It is not the responsibility or fault of NbN if there is a schedule change and the players/parents have not been informed. It is your responsibility to provide us with any scheduling conflicts that you would like for us to try to accommodate by listing them on the registration form. If you do not list the conflicts when registering, please do not expect us to work around them. We cannot always work around your requests but we will do our best to accommodate them.
