Unionville Recreation Association (URA) Baseball Registration Now Open for the 2014 Season!
Registration for URA Baseball is now open and will continue through mid-January 2014 or until programs fill, whichever comes first. Chartered by the Babe Ruth League, URA offers a variety of age appropriate divisions which are affiliated with Cal Ripken Baseball. URA is open to all residents of the Unionville-Chadds Ford School District, Kennett Consolidated School District and the Avon Grove School District! URA Baseball is a Recreational program – all registered players make a team, no one gets cut.
The URA Baseball Program supports well over 350 players in our Cal Ripken Divisions (ages 5-12) alone. Once again URA will offer the extremely popular machine pitch baseball for boys and girls ages 5 and 6, where rules drive success for all players. Additionally, URA baseball will be entering their 5th season of the 50/70 format for baseball players ages 11 and 12.
For the more competitive players, URA baseball offers post-recreational season tournament team opportunities. URA continues to be extremely successful, capturing numerous district and state championships across all age groups and have advanced as far as a Regional Championship game! In the 2013 season, more than 65% of our recreational players also participated on post-recreational season tournament teams. We also hosted a number of successful tournaments at various age levels. URA softball also offers post-season tournament opportunities as well as numerous pre-season, in-season and post-season skills clinics. To participate on URA tournament teams, players must also meet participation requirements in the Recreational league.
Lastly, URA Baseball focuses on the player but is also organized with the parents in mind. No games end beyond dark and while we are a 100% volunteer run organization and have a numerous volunteer opportunities, come game day URA parents do not umpire games, nor do parents work a snack bar – parents are coaches, spectators and cheerleaders for their kids!
