We have received several questions regarding the how the raffle ticket process works. Please read below to get the answers to your questions!
Q. How do I, or my child, play for free at MAA? A. The Program Registration fee can earned back by selling Raffle Tickets to your family, friends, co-workers, or anyone at all. MAA will provide you with raffle tickets equal in value to the total cost of the registration fee of all programs that you have registered for. These raffle tickets are NOT a "Chance" to "Win" your registration fee back, instead they are a legal fundraiser for everyone to earn their entire registration program fee back. For example, If the total amount of your registration fees (not including the family/volunteer fee) is $115, then you will receive 23 raffle tickets to sell at $5 per ticket, which you will need to then turn into your coach by Father's Day. Each ticket is serialized and logged so in cannot be duplicated. If you sell all your raffle tickets, you have registered for free!
Q.) When is the Raffle Drawing and what are the prizes? A.) Drawings for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners will be held on MAA All Star Day of which the date has yet to be determined. Several communications in this regard will be made to all registrants and their families. 1st place prize is $500 cash, 2nd is $250, and 3rd place is $100. Good luck to everyone!
Q.) How do I get the Raffle Tickets if I Register online? A.) For those registering online, Raffle Tickets to earn back registration fees can be picked up either from your coach or you can contact MAA Registration @
. You must have your Registration receipt in order to collect your Raffle Tickets! Again, we will log all of your tickets when you pick them up or receive them from your coach so MAA will know exactly how many tickets you have and the serial numbers of each one.
Q.) Do I also get Raffle Tickets to cover the Family / Volunteer Fee? A.) No, however you can get a refund of up to $75 of the $100 volunteer fee by either coaching, volunteering 2 hour shifts at the snack stand, attending field maintenance day, or a combination of these. Here is the break down of the volunteer refunds:
Coaching - $50 refund ($25 more if 3 parents from your team work the snack stand for 4 hours)
Field Maintenance $40 (dates to be determined)
Snack Stand $25 per 2 hour shift
Your total refund cannot exceed $75.
If you have other questions or issues regarding registration, fees, and programs specifics, please send an e-mail to
