Early Registration Announced for Rockaway Little League Season
The Rockaway Little League Board Directors has announced an early registration for the up - coming 2010 baseball season at Fort Tilden.
Parents who act quickly to register their kids at www.rockawaylittleleagueny.com by the end of the year will be able to pay according to last year's fee schedule, avoiding an expected raise in those fees as of January 1.
Before the raise, registration is $140 for one child, $230 for two, or $320 for three or more.
A review of some of the parent's surveys from last year indicate that many parents favor start ing a little earlier and avoiding games on Moth er's and Father's Days. Parents and Guard ians who have not completed their survey can do so by following the directions on the league's web site at rockawaylittleleagueny. com. By registering early, little league organizers will also be able to better plan for the season, determining how many teams are playing in each division, creating a preliminary schedule, deciding how many uniforms to order, etc.
Opening day is tentatively scheduled for Monday, April 12, to allow for each team to practice a few times after kids return from the public school spring break on April 6.
The league is also planning evaluation days in mid-March where prospective players will get a chance to practice in front of coaches and receive some extra instruction. This session will also allow for coaches to determine the level of each player so that teams can be filled evenly.
With organizers working diligently to prepare for Opening Day, players and parents are asked to cooperate by registering early.
