2024 Baseball and Softball Registrations Are Open

By KCRBL, 01/25/24, 7:45AM EST


The 2024 Spring season of Cal Ripken Baseball and Babe Ruth Softball is just around the corner. Registrations are now open for this season. 

Click on the Registration button in our menu bar to register your children for participation and/or yourselves for coaching/volunteering.

KCRBL made a conscious decision to keep our registration fees the same as the last few years. All levels of softball (8u, 10u, 12u) are $75. Baseball registration is $90 for Majors (ages 11-12) and Minors (ages 9-10), and $50 for Rookie (ages 7-8) and T-Ball (ages 4-6). Ages are based on “league age.” “League age” is defined by Babe Ruth League Inc as the player’s age as of May 1, 2024, for baseball, and as of December 31, 2023, for softball. 

Registration is open to all youth within our league boundary of Brookfield*, Effingham, New Durham*, Ossipee, Tuftonboro*, and Wolfeboro*. 
*Towns included in our Softball program

Also, Junior Babe Ruth Baseball is here for another season, for ages 13 to 16, at $150 per player. Yes, Babe Ruth League Inc has added age 16 to the Junior Babe Ruth level.  For 2024, our league boundary includes Alton, Alton Bay, and Middleton. Know people in those towns? Let them know that their 13- to 16-year-olds have a Babe Ruth league to play in this summer. The registration fee covers tournament fees, uniforms, umpire fees, insurance, equipment, and more. 

Deadlines to register are: Majors/Minors/Rookie Baseball on Monday, March 18; Softball on Thursday, March 21; T-Ball on Friday, April 5; and Junior Babe Ruth Baseball 13-15 on Wednesday, May 1.

KCRBL accepts all major credit cards for payment through their online registration system. 

If money is an issue and is holding you back from signing your child up for KCRBL, we encourage you to apply for a sports scholarship and even equipment assistance through The Nick's Youth Assistance Scholarship Program or Ossipee Children's Fund.

The Nick, a long-time partner of KCRBL, is proud to be able to award upward of 50 scholarships annually and is committed to ensuring all children in our community have the opportunity to play organized sports. Scholarship applications and more details can be found at and submitted to or mailed to The Nick, PO Box 838, Wolfeboro NH, 03894. 

The Ossipee Children's Fund provides tuition assistance for many programs, including  recreation, for eligible children living in the KCRBL towns of Effingham and Ossipee. The organization was established on the premise that children of working parents or parents seeking employment should be assured a secure environment in which to learn, socialize, and play. Scholarship applications and more details can be found at .

When seeking financial assistance, you will not be able to complete the registration on right away. Notify KCRBL that you’ve applied for scholarship, and then send us a copy of the YAP certificate to KCRBL upon receipt. At that time, KCRBL will issue a “scholarship code” to apply to your registration during checkout.
