Happy New Year from Norwalk Cal Ripken!
We hope everyone enjoyed their holidays. Now that they are over and the cold weather has set in, it is only natural to focus on the Spring baseball season. Our Executive Board has been hard at work throughout the Fall and Winter making plans for another successful season.
We have made one change this year. Each year we have had to scramble at the end of the season to collect the NAA raffle tickets and the money generated from their sale. This is the only annual fundraiser we do. To avoid the chaos involved in collection, we have added the $20 raffle fee to our enrollment fee. The raffle tickets will be distributed at the beginning of the baseball season and may be sold to anyone you wish in order to recoup your $20 expenditure. We have also increased our entry free for the three older divisions by $5, our first increase in a number of years. We are mindful that the economy is still troubled and we have worked hard to keep our fee as low as possible while still delivering the highest quality program in Norwalk.
We will be having our annual registration pizza party in the Community Room at Norwalk City Hall on Monday, January 27, 2014. It starts at 6:00 p.m. and runs until 8:00 p.m. You can sign up your children there and also enjoy some tasty pizza. Norwalk Cal Ripken coaches and Board members will be there to answer any questions you may have regarding our league. The pizza party is free.
Our online registration is also up and running. To access it, simply to go our website at norwalkcalripken.com. You may also mail in your registration and check to the address on the form. Finally, we will be having in-person signups at Fox Run Elementary School on February 1, 2014 and on February 15, 2014 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. We will also be at the Cranbury Chapel on February 1, 2014 from 9am to 12pm.
Note that there is a $10 discount per player for all who are signed up on or before January 27, 2014 and a $5 discount per player for all who register on or before February 15, 2014. We also give a $10 discount per player for a second child from the same family and all additional siblings who sign up at any time. NOTE: The sibling discount does not work when using the online registration, though we will promptly refund the proper amount for any payments that qualify. We encourage all of you to register as soon as possible to take advantage of these discounts.
See you soon.
