The registration fee will be $30 and the child will not be placed on a team unless the registration fee is paid and the sign-up form is filled out. A copy of the child’s birth certificate is needed if one is not on file at the recreation department already.

The Georgia Recreation and Parks Association has changed the age control date for all sports to September 1. Therefore the child’s age on or before September 1, 2019 will be used to determine the age group.

Any bats used must meet the standards approved by the GRPA and USA Bats. Approved Bat List : https://usabat.com/
