Spring 2022 Welcome Letter

Update: 1/09/2022 by Angelica Martinez

 

Ocala Rotary Sportsplex

5220 SE Maricamp Road Ocala, FL 34480

 

Welcome and thank you for choosing Ocala Rotary Sportsplex Cal Ripken League for your 2022 Spring baseball season. 

Some information about the season.

Registration Fees. Your registration fee pays for your player’s uniform & insurance, it also helps defer the cost of baseballs, lights (replacement & usage), equipment (batting cages, L screens, catchers gear, helmets, field rakes, chalk, etc.) & park improvements. We are continually looking for sponsors at the park. If you know of anyone or a business that may be able to help by sponsoring please contact Angelica at  OcalaRotarySecretary@gmail.com.

Volunteers. There are many volunteer opportunities at the park. Parents are strongly encouraged to get involved! We appreciate all who have and will sign up to coach this season.  All teams will have a scheduled “Field Duty” night, where the parents are to help in the concession stand and coaches to help with field duties.  We appreciate all you do as parents and coaches. (Please reach out to Angelica, OcalaRotarySecretary@gmail.com. with any volunteer questions.)

New Here? We are happy to have you and your family join us for the first time.  For those of you that are new here is a bit of information on how we operate at Ocala Rotary Sportsplex. First we open up registration and you register your player and yourself if you would like to coach.  We then send out email updates informing everyone who has registered about evaluations. We do not have a "tryout" but an evaluation, as everyone is placed on a team.  We then have a player draft where  Managers come to draft their teams.  After the teams are drafted, you will be updated via email and if you have not already downloaded the "Sign Up Play" app on your phone, I would do so now, as this is our primary way of communication amongst your teammates and coaches with practice days and game day information.  Once Games start, practices are brought to a minimum as we now have games that take over the week.

Thank you for your support of your child & we look forward to a great season!
