Each year the Ridgeway Advancement sponsors summer baseball programs for the youth in the Village of Ridgeway and Town of Ridgeway.  This summer the programs being offered include the following:

Tee Ball – boys and girls – ages 4 & 5 (age 6 if first year playing)A tee and soft ball will be used to assist teaching the basic rules and skills of baseball.  Start date anticipated to be week of June 6 with day(s) of week to be determined by coaches.

Coach Pitch – boys and girls – ages 6 & 7 (one year of prior tee ball experience suggested)Players will have a baseball pitched to them by a coach and continue to develop baseball skills to include hitting, catching, throwing and game strategies.  Games will be played with other teams so travel will be required in surrounding communities (primarily Barneveld).  Start date anticipated to be week of June 6 or earlier with day(s) of week to be determined by coaches.

Summer baseball – 3rd and 4th grades – boys and girls
Summer baseball – 5th and 6th grades – boys and girls

Players will continue skill development and participate in game competition.   Players on the team will compete against other teams in the Southwestern Wisconsin Ruegsegger Sports League and travel will be required for away games.  Parents are responsible for getting players to games not coaches.  All home games are played in Ridgeway.  Games expected to begin week of June 1st through mid-July.  Practice expected to begin mid-April.  Typical schedule will be two league games played each week.  3rd and 4th graders play league games on Monday and Thursday nights at 5:30 p.m. and 5th and 6th grade play league games on Monday and Thursday night at 7:30 p.m.  Ages will be combined, if necessary, to roster a full team at the highest age.

The summer baseball programs being offered will depend on the amount of participants interested so it is very important to complete the form and return it to school by Friday, April 15th.

Tee Ball/Coach Pitch – No fee is required.
3rd through 8th grades – $30
Jr. and Sr. Babe Ruth – $40
Family Max – $120

Fees can also be covered by working the food stand during any Ridgeway Advancement event in 2018.  Your options would be to work 3 shifts to cover one $30 fee.  The family max is 8 shifts.  If neither of these options works for your family please contact your coach, or someone on the Ridgeway Advancement to discuss other options.  We don’t want to see any children left out.

You will receive more information about the summer baseball program by phone or email in the upcoming weeks based on the program that you have expressed interest in playing.  Thank you to the Ridgeway Advancement for supporting the youth in our community!

Fill out the form below and return to the School by Friday, April 15th.
