REGISTRATIONS ARE NOW BEING ACCEPTED FOR THE 2014 TP HOUSE LEAGUE BASEBALL SEASON AT CHRISTIE PITS AND BICKFORD PARK; SIGN UP BEFORE FEBRUARY 28 AND SAVE $10 PER REGISTRANT WITH OUR EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION OFFER
The Toronto Playgrounds Baseball Committee is now accepting registrations for the 2014 House League baseball season
After a thorough forensic audit of its financial ledgers, the Committee has finalized its registration fees for the 2014 season.
Due to an increase in user fees by the City of Toronto for the use of the baseball diamonds at Christie Pits and Bickford Park, there will be a $10.00 per player increase in the registration fee for the upcoming season. Rest assured that the Committee did everything possible in its power to minimize the increase in order to continue its tradition of making the house league baseball experience affordable to all children and families who desire to play baseball within our community.
All interested Parents and Players are advised that the Committee will once again be offering an Early Bird Registration Fee Incentive for the upcoming house league season. Register before February 28, 2014 and save $10.00 per player on the 2014 registration fee.
In addition. the Committee is working on formalizing a relationship with the Canadian Tire Jump Start Program, which is a program that provides financial support to families so that children can participate in organized sports activities. We’re going to send the information out as soon as we can so that interested families can contact the program.
Here are the 2014 House League Fees for each age category:
- TEE BALL (2007-2010) > $120.00
- ROOKIE BALL (2005-2006) > $120.00
- MOSQUITO (2003-2004) > $145.00
- PEEWEE (2001-2002) > $145.00
- BANTAM (1999-2000) > $145.00
- MIDGET (1996-1998) > $145.00
With the overwhelming popularity of our respective house league baseball offerings, the Committee strongly urges all interested parents and players to register early to guarantee a placement in our program. ALL roster spots in our six age groups will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. Once all the available roster openings have been filled in a designated age category, any additional registrants will be put on a sequential waiting list in the event an opening becomes available.
There is also a change to this year’s form regarding registering in our Tee Ball and Rookie Ball Programs.
Last year after sending out the registration forms we set up two four team divisions in rookie ball, with one division playing on Mondays (and practicing every second Wednesday) and the other division playing on Wednesdays (and practicing every second Monday). We’re going to have the two divisions again this year, but we’re asking parents to indicate on the form which of the divisions they prefer. If you have a strong preference for one night but could also play the other night please rank them as 1 and 2. If you can only play one of the two nights rank that one as 1 and put an X in the other spot. If either night will work equally well for you (and it will be great to have some people in that position), please put a check mark on both days.
This year we are planning on doing the same type of arrangement in our Tee Ball program, except that there will be three four-team divisions…one playing Tuesday, one on Thursday, and one on Friday. This way Tee Ball families can also have a standard game night as is the case in our other divisions. We’re asking parents to indicate on the form which of the divisions they prefer. If you have a strong preference for one night but could also play the other nights please rank them as 1, 2 and 3. If you can only play one of the two nights rank that one as 1 and put an X in the other spots. If any of the nights will work equally well for you (and it will be great to have some people in that position), please put a check mark on all three days.
In both the Tee Ball and Rookie Ball divisions the spaces in the divisions will be assigned on a first-come first-served basis. There are obviously only a certain number of spots available in each division.
Parents and Players are also advised that the house league registration fee covers the cost of a trophy, picture (individual & team) and a uniform (cap, jersey and pants).
