Council for Recreation Meeting
7:00 PM
Location: Indian Pride Park

2/17 UPDATE: Baseball and Softball registration forms and payments (via credit card) are now available to be completed online! Just click here to fill out the registration form. Upon completion of the form, you will be directed to pay your sign-up fees. A reminder if you are registering more than one child, you must complete separate registration forms for each individual child for our records. Thank you for your cooperation.

It’s that time of year again! As the fields of Indian Pride Park lay dormant under a blanket of freshly fallen snow, the days are flying by and that means we are getting closer everyday to Hartford’s annual springtime tradition – youth baseball and softball! We are looking forward to a fantastic spring and early summer full of loud hits, great catches and lifelong memories that will be made by the youth of the Hartford community!

The Hartford Council for Recreation will be holding two sign-up dates during the month of February to get our youth signed up for our summer baseball and softball programs. Those dates are February 7th and February 20th. Sign-ups will be held at Red Arrow Elementary School in Hartford from 6:00 to 8:00 PM on both of those evenings. These will be the only two-sign-up dates for the 2017 season, so please get your children signed up at one of these two dates!

As has been the case the past few years, NO sign-ups will be allowed without payment and there will be NO EXCEPTIONS! You must pay the fees listed below at the time you sign your children up with us. Fees for baseball and softball have been adjusted slightly for the 2017 summer season and are as follows:

T-Ball: $45.00
1 Child (Baseball / Softball): $75.00
2 Children (Baseball / Softball): $115.00
3 or More Children (Baseball / Softball): $135.00

For your convenience, we do take credit cards (Visa, MasterCard and Discover) and also offer sponsorship opportunities for families that may not be able to afford the above costs. If this applies to your family, please check with the Hartford Council for Recreation member you sign-up with for more details.


The mission of the Hartford Council for Recreation is to give the youth of the communities we serve the opportunity to participate in structured sports programs, with the ultimate goal of not who wins or who loses, but teaching our youth valuable lifelong lessons that will serve them not just today, but long into their adult lives.
