RARO Policies on Jerseys, Refunds, Age Determination:
RARO Jerseys - Jerseys for RARO programs are available for purchase at the RARO Office (300 Diamond Street in Lexington) at a cost of $25.00 each. These jerseys are mesh reversible and are used for baseball, softball, soccer and basketball programs, so one jersey is all each child needs. Each player is required to have a jersey to participate.
Jerseys are returnable for exchange in sizing as long as they have not been used or washed.
Refund Policy - RARO will refund any program fees paid if the request is made prior to a registrant being placed on a team. After that occurrence, a request for refund must be made to the RARO Board of Directors, either in written form or by attending the next scheduled Board Meeting.
Age Determination – Age for most RARO programs (see exception below) is determined as of September 30 of the current year. This date was chosen by the RARO Board to match the same age determination date as local school systems, insuring that in most cases that participants are involved in programs with their peers. Those who wish to request a waiver for the age determination date must do so to the RARO Board, either in writing or in person at the regularly scheduled RARO Board of Directors Meeting before the appropriate season begins.
Age determination dates for nationally-sanctioned programs that RARO offers, such as Babe Ruth Baseball, Cal Ripken Baseball and Babe Ruth Girls Softball, are determined by those governing bodies. As such, no requests for waivers of those determining dates can be considered.
