2022 West Fargo Baseball - Youth Baseball

Objectives of West Fargo Baseball
  • The purpose of this organization is to provide competitive baseball through the development and operation of a baseball program for 5 to 15 year old youth residing in West Fargo School District No. 6.
  • This organization will seek to develop the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, courage and loyalty in the local youth.

Participation Requirements
  • Participant must reside within West Fargo School District No. 6 or attend a private school in the FM area.
  • No refunds of registration fees will be made unless the family moves from the area or the player is medically incapable of playing. Under no circumstances will a refund be granted after team placements have taken place.
  • Registration must be completed by February 27th, 2022. Only registrations received by the deadline will be guaranteed placement on a team. Any late registrations will be subject to a $25 surcharge per player after 2/27/2022. Please contact our office with any questions at [email protected].
  • Players provide their own gray pants, glove, bat & recommended cleats - the league provides a jersey and cap for the players to keep.

Important Registration Notes
  • All players must register during normal signup, including potential travel players. If a player is selected for a travel team, the player will not be placed on a league team.
  • During registration process, you will have the ability to request a certain coach or player(s) to participate with. This is NOT guaranteed but we do our best to accommodate these requests.
  • A payment plan is available when you check out. Half of your payment will be due upon registering and the other half will be automatically taken out on 2/15/2022.

2022 Registration Fees (per registered player)
5-6 Year Olds - $95
7-8 Year Olds - $ 250
9-12 Year Olds - $ 330
13-15 Year Olds - $ 350

Registration must be completed through our secure site, using your Visa Card, Master Card, Discover Card or checking account information.
In order for the registration system to recognize that your family is registering multiple players, please register all of your players in 1 registration session. Failure to do so will result in a forfeiture of your family's discounted rates.
There will be a max registration cost of $600 if registering multiple players of the same family. If you decide to register all players individually, we cannot honor the max fee.

Fundraising
There is NO MANDATORY Fundraising this year. We are still offering the raffle (ages 7-15) to offset the cost of registration, however, the raffle sales go back to you if you choose to do it and the raffle will be drawn in July with a daily cash prize. If you choose the raffle option in the registration form, you will receive a max of 40-$5 raffle tickets per paid registration to offset your registration cost that you can sell. Raffle tickets will be handed out for those that choose when you have your first practice in the spring. 

Age Charts - Are we using the Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken age chart or the Little League age chart? Can my ballplayer "play up" a level?
  • For Red River Valley League play we are accepting both Cal Ripken & Little League age charts. The player may choose which age group they want to compete at and can use either age chart.
  • West Fargo Baseball allows players to play a level 1 year older than their age based on the Little League Age Chart from ages 5-7 (example: in the last year this is allowed, a 7YO could play at the 8YO level). After age 8, the organizations with whom we're affiliated are more strict in their age rules so players will be required to play at the level determined by the age charts. Please understand, this means if they played up in the past, they will be required to play the 8YO level 2 years in a row to become compliant again.
  • If a player chooses to be in the all-star selection process for Little League, the player must sign up under the age listed on the Little League Age Chart.
  • If a player would like to sign up for travel baseball, the player must sign up under the Cal Ripken/Babe Ruth Age Chart.

Game Schedule/Game Nights
No regularly schedule games will be played on Friday nights for any ages. Game nights per age group are to be determined.
The baseball season will begin in early May and end in late July with a end of the year tournament for 8U and up hosted by Fargo Youth Baseball. WFB will send out an email with exact starting dates for each age division.

Practice Nights
Practice schedules will be determined after teams are formed with practices typically held 1 to 2 times during the week. Weekend practices are at coaches' discretion. West Fargo Baseball assigns days & times for field and batting practice availability, but each team's actual practice session is determined by coaches.

Coaches/Team Managers
We are always in need of volunteer coaches for all age groups. If you are interested, please select the co-coach option in the registration, no experience necessary.
All coaches will have the opportunity to create their own teams by submitting a list of players. Coaches must have parent agreement with the player's parent to put on their roster. All other players will be placed on teams with consideration to requests, school affiliation and address.

Travel Teams
Travel teams will be in place for ages 9-15YO, where the number of players and coaching volunteers support them. An email notification regarding travel tryout dates and times will be sent out to all registrants for each age group. Tryout dates and times are typically mid-March. We will also post tryout information on our website.
