2020 SPRING BASEBALL


2020 SPRING BASEBALL

Registration: WEDS., JANUARY 8TH – WEDS., JANUARY 29th 
EXTENDED TO SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 2nd - 11:00pm est

To ensure a place in the league do not delay your registration.  Registration may close earlier for some age groups that reach the maximum numbers. Once maximum numbers are reached a waiting list will be created.  We will add players from the waiting list if players drop or if we are able to host additional teams in the age group.  Late registration will only be accepted to balance individual age group numbers; a $25 late fee will be added to your registration.
 

LEAGUE AGE IS DETERMINE BY HOW OLD YOU ARE ON APRIL 30th, 2020 

COED T-Ball and Modified Coach-Pitch Baseball age groups (3 to 5-year-old):  There are no player evaluations, teams are assigned by the League Commissioner.  We do allow player request to play with a certain player or coach. This can be done during the registration process.  We cannot guarantee that all requests will be met, at times there are too many requests to play with certain coach or player for us to honor them all.  Games are typically played on Saturdays.

Coach-Pitch Baseball and Baseball age groups 6-year-old and up:   Games are played twice a week and will participate in the End of Year Tournament. Players will be evaluated and then drafted by Coaches. All players registered will be drafted.  To help balance the teams, our policy is not to allow player request to play with certain coaches or players.  Please do not ask, Thank you 
 
Coaches:
During the registration process there will be a section where parents can indicate their desire to coach.  If you have any questions, please contact your age group commissioners. The list of age group commissioners can be found under the baseball web-page tab

Practices: 
During pre-season; teams will be assigned one weeknight slot and one weekend slot.  Once games begin; teams will practice once a week.  We cannot arrange for specific practice days.  Coaches will select times slots when they receive the team roster. Once season games begin there will be no assigned practices for the T-Ball age group.

Concession Duty:  NEW PROCEDURE FOR SPRING 2020
NWRAA is a volunteer-based organization and we rely on Parents’ involvement.  We need Parents to volunteer to work a concession shift.  New this year we are adding a Concession Work Deposit (CWD) fee of $25.00 to each participant. The deposit will be added to your league fee. The CWD will be refunded to you after the completion of your work shift.  If you are unavailable to volunteer for a shift, your CWD will be used for your buyout and you will not receive a refund.  More info on the new program can be found on the web site.

2020 Spring Concession Duty

Concession Duty Obligation (Pilot Program) - 

New this year we are adding a Concession Work Deposit (CWD) fee of $25.00 to each participant.  The deposit will be added to your league fee. The CWD will be refunded to you after the completion of your work shift.  If you are unavailable to volunteer for a shift, your CWD will be used for your buyout and you will not receive a refund. 
 
NWRAA is a volunteer-based organization and we rely on Parents’ involvement.  We need Parents to volunteer, whether it is working a concession shift or working a gate during a tournament, your involvement is important.  If a family is unable to volunteer the CWD will be used as a ‘concession buyout’ like the option we have had in the past.

There will be no formal Concession Work Schedule.  Parents will have the opportunity to coordinate a work shift which best fits their schedule.  Typical work shift is 3.5 hours.   The League plans on hiring backup concession workers to fill in to keep the Concession Stand properly staffed.  The CWD will be used to fund additional staffing.


This is a pilot program and will be evaluated at the end of the season.
