The Crofton Athletic Council has announced days and times for registration for baseball, softball, boys and girls lacrosse and cheerleading. All sports except cheerleading are scheduled for spring and earlysummer.
The cost will vary from sport to sport, but the annual $30 family membership fee is due with the first registration you make. Both baseball and softball cost $25; boys lacrosse is $40.
Girls lacrosse and cheerleading cost $30. Cheerleading will be a little different this year, with a tryout for girls who wish to cheerfor a football team. Those who don't make a team or do not wish to try out will be placed on a team that will cheer for one of our countysoccer teams.
Everyone will be able to cheer, so no one needs to stand in lines. You will be able to mail in registrations or come to the two walk-in registrations, set for 9 a.m. to noon Jan. 25 and noon to 3 p.m. Feb. 1 at Crofton Elementary School.
For information on these programs, you may contact the commissioners of each sport: Mike Reineck, baseball, 261-6819; Elaine Dorsey, softball, 261-6708; Fern Frye, girls lacrosse, 721-1428; Chet Hebbel, boys lacrosse, 262-5536; and Julie Watkins, cheerleading, 858-1419.
These commissioners, as well as all the others in the CAC, ask that if you have any equipment or uniforms, please turn them in. With times so tough, the programs lack the money to replace things that are not returned. Without the proper equipment or money to buy new items, kids might be turned away from our programs.
