2018 PLAYER REGISTRATION IS OPEN
   
FEBRUARY 18, 2018      HCSL BOARD OF DIRECTORS


Player registration is now open for the 2018 Season of the Houston Collegiate Summer League.

Originally started more than 30 years ago as the AABC Gulf Coast Stan Musial, the Houston Collegiate Summer League will be celebrating our 3rd season of summer ball in the Greater Houston area, and player registration is now open for the upcoming 2018 summer season.

In 2018, the HCSL will field 8 teams, play a 21 game regular season schedule with a post season tournament for which its regular season league champion will represent the league at the 84th NBC World Series in Wichita, KS.  League games will be played at Premier Baseball Complex and Northland Christian HS.  In addition to the move to Premier, the HCSL has also secured experienced collegiate umpires from the Southland Conference (a regional NCAA D1 conference).  Our experienced coaching staffs and league officials will be dedicated to a great summer experience.

For players who do not live in the Greater Houston area, the 2018 housing/lodging options are limited to local area contracted extended stay hotels and short term apartments.   

Players wishing to register for the 2018 season shall be in compliance with our newly implemented eligibility guidelines.  Guidelines were implemented to ensure compliance with our recent affiliation with CSB.  A non-refundable player registration fee of $50 will be charged at time of registration.  The Player League Fee, and all payment plans, shall be paid in full no later than June 1st. 

Player League Fee shall be established by the individual teams, if you are registering as a Pool Player, the Player League Fee shall be $600 for Pitcher Only and $700 for Position players.  Housing plan costs for out of area players shall be $1,000 with players being partnered up.
