Regular Season Refund Policy
We understand that sometimes life happens and circumstances might require your child to withdraw from our program. If that happens, here is how refunds work:
- If you withdraw prior to the Evaluation date, your Registration Fees will be refunded in full less a $30 Administrative Fee.
- If you withdraw after the Evaluation date, your Registration Fees will be refunded in full less a $30 Administrative Fee and the $40 Evaluation Fee (if your player evaluated).
- If you withdraw after the season has started (including pre-season practices), a pro-rated refund of Registration Fees will be granted less a $30 Administrative Fee and the $40 Evaluation Fee (if your player evaluated).
Baseball is an emotional sport and passionate responses from players, coaches and parents is understandable. North Regina has implemented a 24-Hour Cool Down Policy to help defuse emotional situations and minimize heated confrontations. We believe it’s in everyone’s best interest if we take some time to cool down and approach the situation with a calmer perspective. For that reason, coaches are advised not to engage in discussion with a spectator about an incident or situation that occurred during the game until at least 24 hours later. As a spectator, we request that you not approach a coach to discuss an incident or situation until everyone has had a chance to cool down.
By having everyone respect the 24-Hour Cool Down Policy, we believe concerns can be fully discussed and a suitable solution can be reached. This helps preserve the respectful, family atmosphere at our park and increases our player’s enjoyment of the game.

This policy allows players to evaluate for the age group above their appropriate Division provided they meet the following requirements.
- The player must be entering their second year in the appropriate Division.
- The player must rank in the top five of players evaluated for their appropriate Division.
- The Player Agent Committee must agree that the player is ready to move up based on conversations with references provided. Readiness will be based on the player’s level of maturity, leadership and knowledge of the game.
If all of the above criteria is met, the player would be offered the opportunity to evaluate for the older Division. The player must then rank in the top 80% of the evaluated players deemed eligible to be drafted in the AAA Division. The player will not be able to play in AA in the higher age Division.
Process to Apply
- Complete the Playing Up a Division Waiver before the close of Regular Season registration. Submit the waiver to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- The Player Agent Committee will review the waiver and contact references to determine the player’s readiness for moving up.
- Parents will be notified prior to evaluations if the readiness criteria has been met.
- Player will attend evaluations for their appropriate age Division.
- If the wavier was approved and the player placed in the top 5 of their Division, they will be invited to participate in the higher Divisions evaluations. This will happen very quickly so families must be ready to attend the higher Division evaluations or forfeit the waiver.
