Early Registration

Registering early helps us to appropriately and efficiently staff programs, create schedules and order supplies.

Most activities have registration limits and may reach that limit before the early registration finishes. Registrations after early registration will only be accepted if room is available.

A Note About Registering For Team Activities

Please do not register online if carpooling.
For carpooling purposes you may request to play with two other individuals, however these two individuals must be in the same level and school as your child. These registrations must be mailed together or turned into the office at the same time. To help prevent errors in this process we encourage participants not to use online registration if making carpool requests. This procedure only applies to registrations received by the registration deadline.

Minors or Majors: Requests to play on the same team will not be guaranteed. However, siblings will be grouped together if requested on registration form.

Daycares: If you are responsible for transporting a group of players call the park office at 701-433-5360 and we will limit your players to be on 2 teams. Only 12 players will be allowed per team.

Baseball and Girls Softball

Registration Deadline for Baseball and Girls Softball is April 11. Late fees will apply on April 12.

All baseball/softball levels will be based on grade completed as of the current school year. Girls and boys play together for T-Ball and Rookies. Ideally, a maximum amount of players placed on a roster is 12. Exceptions may occur based on the situation. Team rosters will be set up according to school attending. Please specify the school your child attends or would like to play with when you register.

Individual and team photos will be taken at the Veterans Memorial Arena. Dates and times will be posted online and on a printed schedule.

On the 1st day of baseball/softball teams will meet at their assigned field. During the first week participants will work on skill development and rules of the game.

There will be no Baseball or Softball the week of July 4.

Championship Tournaments will be held the week of July 21-24 for Minors, Majors and Girls Softball. Dates and times will be determined.

There are 2 rain out dates built into the schedule. If more than 2 days are cancelled due to weather, those days will be made up the week of July 28-31.

Equipment

  • Bring your glove on the first day of ball and to practice every day.
  • Request T-shirt size and school attending on registration form.
  • Bats will be supplied by the West Fargo Park District.
  • For sanitary reasons, the West Fargo Park District highly recommends players bring their own helmet. However, helmets will be provided for those who do not bring their own.

Refunds

Once registered for an activity a refund will be issued only if the activity is cancelled, or you provide a doctor’s note explaining a medical condition preventing you from participating.

Reduced Rates for Low Income Assistance

Reduced rates may be offered to residents with limited incomes. Eligibility is in accordance with recognized income guidelines for state and federal programs. For more information call 701-433-5360.

Insurance

The West Fargo Park District does not carry insurance for participants. We suggest reviewing your family’s personal health insurance plan to be sure it provides you with sufficient coverage. We also suggest consulting a physician before starting any activity requiring physical exertion.

Americans with Disabilities Act

We are committed to supporting the Americans with Disabilities Act. If you require special accommodations for participation in any activities or facilities, please contact the West Fargo Park District at 701-433-5360.

Unattended Child Policy

Because the West Fargo Park District cares about patrons, the following policy was adopted. We ask all parents and guardians to be on time when picking up their child from a West Fargo Park District activity or facility. Any child not picked up 20 minutes after an activity ends is considered an “unattended child”. Program leaders will remain on site until all patrons have left the premises. However, after 20 minutes, the West Fargo Police Department will be contacted to pick up the child and escort them to the proper authorities. Children under the age of 7 must be accompanied by an adult or a student age 14 or older.
