League Comparisons

There has been a lot of talk lately about how the league is run, the costs to run the league, etc.

I wanted to compare a few Arizona leagues going into the board meeting so you can be educated, and understand where we are as a league. Some of you want big city league, others like myself have played in many big city leagues across the country and know just how fortunate we are to have such a laid back league.

I hope this helps you better understand where we are as a league.

So here are the comparisons I did:

Cost per game breakdown:

League Per Game
LHC Mens $30.70
LHC Coed $43.90
Chandler Mens $32.14
Chandler Coed $44.14
Scottsdale Mens and Coed $37.50
Victory Park Glendale Mens/ Coed $41.62
Phoenix Coed and Mens $32.14
Prescott mens/coed $36.00
Kingman mens coed $38.00
Bullhead mens coed $50.00
Flagstaff mens coed $46.88
