Early Registration Still On For Rockaway Little League
Parents who register their kids at www.rockaway littleleagueny.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, and $320 for three or more.
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 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 coaches to determine the level of each player so that teams can be filled evenly.
A review of some of the parents’ surveys from last year indicate that many parents favor starting a little earlier and avoiding games on Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.
Parents and guardians who have not completed their survey can do so by following the directions on the league’s website.
