As of January 1, 2019, LAOUT leagues & tournaments require a LAOUT organization membership.
But, why?! We’re glad you asked. Membership helps LAOUT as an organization, and you as an individual, in several ways:
- MORE AGENCY | As a member of LAOUT, each and every person is invited to public committee meetings and has the right to run for a co-chair of said committees. Thus far we have the Equity Committee, League Com, Marketing Committee, and Prom Task Force; and we plan to revitalize our Club Committee in the spring.
- PROGRAMMING | We aren’t satisfied with all of our offerings being good, we want to make them great! We’re continuing to invest in the process of finding more fields in better locations and paying our league and tournament directors more so that they can create better events for you!
