  • We do not accept scheduling, teammate or coach requests for CJ Hawks teams. We pick the teams purely based on skill level and specific team needs, without any consideration for special requests. This is to ensure the integrity of the levels of the teams. However, a player may choose to move down a level to accommodate a scheduling conflict, teammate request or coach preference, assuming there is room on the team the player is looking to switch to. Players will not be moved up to accommodate any requests. 
  • Spectators may have to pay admission fees at outside tournaments. Certain tournaments that are held at MSC and Central Jersey Basketball will be run by outside organizations who charge admission fees. MSC has no control over this. Admission fees are NOT included in the team fee​.
