Youth Baseball – Softball Program
Offered by: North Ridgeville Parks & Recreation Department
The North Ridgeville Parks and Recreation Department has begun taking registration for the 2017 season. There have been some exciting changes for this season based off of the survey results, the following changes are as follows.
· The age cut off has changed from August 1 to May 1. This change will align us with what the other communities are doing and will be more reflective of your child’s age during the actual season.
· We have also changed the age groups for Tots T-Ball (3yrs.), T-Ball (4&5 yrs.), Coach Pitch (6&7 yrs.) & H league (8-10yrs.). Due to the fact that we now offer Tots T-Ball and based on survey results we felt these changes would best serve the kids playing ball. This change allows for 5 years of development prior to moving into the traditional baseball / softball programs of kid pitch.
· T The prices have increased to cover expenses as well as survey results that indicated a price increase that eliminated fund raising was preferred. YES THAT IS CORRECT NO FUND RAISING!
· We have also rolled out a new communication tool for game cancellations. The Rainout Line will now allow us to send out text alerts as well as emails when games have been canceled or delayed. You can visit our website and sign-up for this feature on our Home page under Program Cancellation & Field Status and then click on email / text alerts. These alerts will be for home games only not for games cancelled at other communities.
