All baseball/softball levels will be based on grade completed as of 2013/2014 school year. Girls and boys play together for T-Ball and Rookies. Ideally, a maximum amount of players placed on a roster is 12. Exceptions may occur based on the situation.

Individual and team photos will be taken. Dates and times will be posted online and on a printed schedule. On the 1st day of baseball/softball, teams will meet at their assigned field. During the first week participants will work on skill development and rules of the game. There are 2 rain out dates built into the schedule. If more than 2 days are cancelled due to weather, those days will be made up the week of July 28-31. For weather related information and other updates, call the Cancellation Line at 433-5363. Equipment: Players should bring their own baseball glove with them to practice every day. Bats will be supplied by the West Fargo Park District. For sanitary reasons, the West Fargo Park District highly recommends players bring their own helmet. However, helmets will be provided for those who do not bring their own. Carpooling: For carpooling purposes you may request to play with two other individuals, however these two individuals must be in the same level and school as your child. These registrations must be mailed together or turned into the office at the same time. To help prevent errors in this process we encourage participants not to use online registration if making carpool requests. This procedure only applies to registrations received by the registration deadline. Minors or Majors: Requests to play on the same team will not be guaranteed. Siblings will be grouped together only if requested on registration form. Daycares: If you are responsible for transporting a group of players call the park office before April 4 at 433-5360 and we will limit your players to be on 2 teams.

Ways to Register

Cancellations

Refunds

Unattended Child Policy

Mail in, drop off, fax or register online at wfparks.org. A drop box is available after hours at the park office.

Call the West Fargo Park District cancellation line at 433-5363 or check the wfparks.org website.

Once registered for an activity a refund will be issued only if the activity is cancelled, or you provide a doctor’s note explaining a medical condition preventing you from participating.

Because the West Fargo Park District cares about patrons, the following policy was adopted. We ask all parents and guardians to be on time when picking up their child from a West Fargo Park District activity or facility. Any child not picked up 20 minutes after an activity ends is considered an “unattended child." Program leaders will remain on site until all patrons have left the premises. However, after 20 minutes, the West Fargo Police Department will be contacted to pick up the child and escort them to the proper authorities. Children under the age of 7 must be accompanied by an adult or a student age 14 or older.

You will not be contacted before activities begin. To confirm that you are registered or to check on an activity’s start date, call 433-5360. Please note that early registration dates are not activity start dates.

Reduced Rates

Reduced rates may be offered to residents with limited incomes. Eligibility is in accordance with recognized income guidelines for state and federal programs. For more information call 433-5360.

Americans with Disabilities We are committed to supporting the Americans with Disabilities Act. If you require special accommodations for participation in any activities or facilities, please contact the West Fargo Park District at 433-5360.

Most activities have registration limits and may reach that limit before the early registration finishes. Registrations after early registration will only be accepted if room is available.
