NORWAY —  The Norway Recreation Department and Norway Youth Baseball are teaming up to offer registration times for baseball, softball and tee-ball from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 5, at the Norway Town Office. Other dates are 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 8, and 5 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 13. 

All parents are asked to attend one of these times to obtain information for their child’s athletic activity.

Baseball is for boys and girls age 6 to 12 as of April 30. Fees are $45 for a single child and $65 for up to four children.

Babe Ruth is for age 13 to 15 and the fee is $100 a player; the baseball family fee does not apply to Babe Ruth.

Softball is for girls age 6 to 18 as of Jan. 1. Fees are $45 for a single child and $65 for up to four children.

New this year, girls under age 12 will belong to the Babe Ruth Softball League. One of the advantages of this change is it allows creating a rookie softball level. All girls from age 6 to 12 will have skill assessments done to place them in the correct level of play: tee-ball, rookie, minors or majors.

Tee-ball is for boys and girls age 4 to 7 and the fee is $25 a player.

For baseball and Babe Ruth, make check payable to Norway Youth Baseball. For softball and tee-ball, make check payable to Norway Recreation Department.

Family fees do not crossover between baseball, softball and tee-ball. These programs are “pay to play,” no tax dollars are used. All funding comes from registrations and fundraising.

The Norway Recreation Commission is looking for positive coaches who have an understanding of how to teach the fundamentals of tee-ball and softball.
