URA Baseball registration opens in January and runs through mid- March.
Games will begin in April, weather permitting.
URA Baseball is similar to little league baseball. We are are affiliated with Cal Ripken Baseball, and play by those rules. The primary difference between little league and Cal RIpken is Cal Ripken permits leads in our majors divisions and plays on a 50/70 field.
URA is open to boys and girls in:
Unionville Chadds Ford School District (UCFSD),
Kennett Consolidated School District,
Avon Grove School District,
Parts of West Chester Area School District.
Our youth baseball program includes ages 5-12, and features multiple divisions geared toward the age and development of your child.
Why URA baseball?
Different ways our league may be a good fit for your player’s and family’s needs:
We will hold a pre-season clinic for all players and coaches designed to provide a foundation for baseball skills development throughout the season.
We play 50/70 baseball exclusively at our 11-12 year old level, with “real baseball” rules, a better transition to full 60/90 baseball played at the teenage levels.
Our “Pee-Wee” 5-6 year old division plays games only on Sunday afternoons (plus one practice a week).
We gradually introduce pitching at the 7-8 yr old division with mixed pitching machine/kid pitch recreational league games.
Our competitive tournament baseball program plays in multiple tournaments through the Spring, Summer and (sometimes) Fall, not just our District tournament, maximizing opportunities for boys interested in playing more baseball.
Our age cutoff remains May 1, meaning that no players will lose a year of eligibility because of age cutoff changes.
We are a volunteer run organization. While we are always seeking additional help from volunteers, we do not make this a mandatory part of playing.
