Registration for WORKS opens soon 1

Registration for the WORKS Little League opens soon.

Parents interested in having their children play in the WORKS Little League — which serves the neighborhoods of Woodhaven, Ozone Park, Richmond Hill, Kew Gardens and South Ozone Park — can register for a spot on four different days this month, beginning on Jan. 5 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Registration will also take place on Jan. 11, 19 and 25, all during the same time as on the 5th, at the league’s headquarters, located at 84-01 Jamaica Ave in Woodhaven. The cost of registration is $110 per family for all divisions, except the Challenger Division, a team for special needs children, which costs $75 per family. Payment must be made by cash, check or money order.

There will be a late fee of $10 charged to anyone who applies after April 1.

Those interested in registering must bring a copy of their child’s birth certificate and proof of residency.

“The philosophy and goal of Little League Baseball is to teach good citizenship, build character, and team work through the game of baseball,” the league said in a statement. “These are all tools required to be successful in life.”

There are teams for boys and girls ages 4 to 15.

The league was formerly called the Rich-Haven Little League, but rebranded when it merged with the Ozone Wakefield Little League in 2002.
