The worst of winter may not have even hit us yet, but the Crofton Athletic Council is hard at work making sure your child has a sports-filled spring and summer.
Registration is under way for boys and girls lacrosse, baseball/softball/T-ball and fall cheerleading. The costfor boys lacrosse is $40; and girls lacrosse and cheerleading is $30per child, while baseball, softball and T-ball is $25. If you have all registrations in the mail by March 1, you will avoid having to paya $10 fee increase per sport.
The new year means you will also have to pay the $30 family athletic fee.
