"8th Annual Special-All-Stars Program"

 Peer-toPeer Volunteers still needed (must be 12+ years or older)..contact  mhgriff@optonline.net

RBSA be holding the 8th annual “Special All-Stars Program” designed for children with special needs.  The program will take place on 4 consecutive Sundays, Apri-May from 10:00 am – 11:30 am.  In order for this program to be a success we need your help. 

The program requires that each participant have a one-on-one peer volunteer to assist them through the 6 stations the program has set up.   Peer volunteers should be 12 years of age or older.  Each station will have a lead volunteer to direct you on how the station works.   The 6 stations are catching, hitting (t-ball), bunting, base running, ground balls, and throwback.   It will be an incredible experience for everyone!  

Please join us for this great experience!  The response over the last 6 years has been wonderful! 

Marianne Griffith is again spearheading the program along with the assistance of many RBSA board members. 

If you have any questions, please call Marianne Griffith at 201-652-1853 or email her at mhgriff@optonline.net.  She would be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have. 

 TO REGISTER AS A PEER VOLUNTEER FOR THIS PROGRAM ONLINE, PLEASE GO TO:  www.ridgewoodsports.org.

This will take you to Village of Ridgewood Community Pass website.  If you are an existing user, please enter your User Name and Password.   If you are a new user, click on the link “Create a new Account”.  Once you have signed in, a Welcome page will appear.  Just below the "Register Now" section, select "Ridgewood Baseball and Softball Association" as your organization; then select the Special All-Stars Program and click Register Now!.  Simply follow the prompts to complete the process. It is important that you remember to check the weeks you are available to volunteer.

Annual Wiffle for Cancer Tournament-- June

The Annual Wiffle for Cancer tournament in memory of Nick Currey will be held in June (date TBD) starting at 12:00 noon at Ridgewood High School, 627 East Ridgewood Avenue in Ridgewood.  (Check-in begins at 11:30 a.m.)  In the past eight years, hundreds of players of all ages and skill levels have taken part in the event which has raised over $100,000 to date. All proceeds benefit the Nick Currey Fund for Ewing Sarcoma Research. The fund was created in memory of Nick Currey, Ridgewood High School Class of 2004, who lost his 14-month battle with Ewing sarcoma on November 3, 2005 at the age of 19.

Nick was a lifelong player in the RBSA all the way through 12th grade Bonvarlet.

Participants are invited to put together a team of 3 to 5 players and register at www.wiffleforcancer.org.. There is a $50/team entry fee, all of which goes to childhood cancer research.  Additional donations are always very much appreciated.   Any questions should be directed to Ralph Currey at wiffleforcancer@gmail.com.

The tournament features two divisions—a "competitive" division for those teams (high school and college age boys/girls and competitive adults) who want to compete seriously for a shot at bragging rights as tournament champion, and a "recreational" division for those teams (younger kids and noncompetitive adults) that primarily just want to have fun and support the cause.

Players of all ages are welcome. The recreational division is the best choice for younger kids.

Teams in each division will be grouped into four-team brackets for an initial round robin. Each team will play every other team in the bracket once, so every team is guaranteed to play at least three games.  At the end of the round robin, the top teams will advance to a single elimination championship round.

There are trophies for the winning teams as well as best team name and shirt.

For further information and online registration, visit www.wiffleforcancer.org.
