Do you honor participant requests?

The RecPlex does honor participant requests on a limited basis. Requests will only be honored for the Shetland and Pinto baseball leagues during the 2016 baseball season. For the Mustang and Bronco leagues, the only requests that will be honored will be sibling requests. Due to the number of participants that register in our programs, not all requests can be accommodated. Refunds will not be given for requests that are unable to be made.

 

Why are we using a draft system for the Mustang and Bronco league?

There will be evaluation days on Monday, April 25th and Tuesday, April 26th that will allow the RecPlex to evaluate every player that is registered for the Mustang and Bronco leagues. Each player will then be drafted at the coaches meeting on Thursday, April 28th. Head coaches and one assistant coach will be allowed to have their children on the same team. Every other player will enter the draft.

What if my Child ends up on a team without a Coach?

As an organization we do our best to recruit the best that the area has to offer in volunteer coaches.  In some instances, we do end up with teams without volunteer coaches.  When this does occur, RecPlex does not want to take away the chance for players to participate.  Instead, a meeting with the team and either has one of the parents step up and offer to coach the team or find a way for the Parents to assume the duties of coaching the team.  In most cases, 2-3 parents on the team take the opportunity and the results have been very positive.
