With the beginning of the new year the Wellington Recreation Commission would like to announce the changes to our Cal Ripken Baseball and Babe Ruth Softball programs.  New this year, coaches will be able to roster up to 7 players before the Skills Assessments.  Each player will still sign up individually, but to be added to a roster a head coach must turn in their list of names to the WRC Sports Director.  Players not on a roster at the time of the Skills Assessments will be added to the remaining spots of each team.  All players are encouraged to participate in the Skills Assessments regardless if they are on a roster or not.  The date of Skills assessments will be determined during the coaches meetings on March 27th, 2018.  
Before a coach may turn in a roster, they must fill out a Coaching application and be cleared by the WRC.
Player eligibility:  The age groups offered for Cal Ripken Baseball are 9-10 year olds and 11-12 year olds.  The age determination is 4/30/2018.  The age groups offered for base Ruth Softball are 10u, 12u, 14u, and 16u and the age determination date is 1/1/2018.  To be eligible to play up an age group, the player must have played 2 years of Coach Pitch Baseball or Softball. Rosters must also follow Cal Ripken and Babe Ruth Geographic Boundary rules which are players must either live in Wellington or go to school in USD 353.  
Player registrations begin now!  All players must be signed up by March 16th.  If you would like to be a coach, visit the WRC to get a Coaching Application or call us at 620-326-3323 for more information.
