Fountain City Recreation Commission

Mission

Fountain City Recreation Commission (FCRC) believes that the pursuit of excellence in the areas of academics and sports helps develop maturity and self-confidence.  We believe that the experiences a player has with Fountain City's programs will be beneficial throughout his or her lifetime.

The focus of Fountain City Recreation Commission is the development of not only the player, but also the person.  Our goal is to maximize the development of the individual through programming that challenges each player and a coaching staff that adheres to high standards.  FCRC is resolute in dedicating its time and resources to the technical, tactical, physical, and psychological aspects of playing team sports.

Offered Programs

 
Recreational Baseball:
The primary objective of the Recreational program is to enable players to learn the game in a fun and stimulating environment. The focus is on developing their skills to help them be the best players they can be, while maintaining a healthy approach to competitive play. Players of all skill levels are encouraged to participate. All players are accepted. Teams are formed by draft to maximize team parity in each league.

Spring Baseball Season: 
Registration typically opens up the first week of January, and games begin the first weekend in April, unless that is Easter Weekend, with our Season Opening Tournament.  The goal each season is for each team to play in at least 10 games, whether that is 10 regular season games, or 7 regular season and 3 tournament games, or whatever combination helps us get everyone to 10 games.   Weather sometimes causes chaos for this, but we do strive to hit the 10 game mark for everyone.  Each team also gets two practice times per week, weather permitting.   Fees are $105 other than Weeball, and Weeball is $85.  A jersey and hat is included for all divisions.  We strive to keep the fees as low as possible and still maintain good umpires, fields, and facilities.   

Fall Baseball Season:
Registration begins July 1st, typically, and Games begin the week after Labor Day.  In the Fall Season, we do not have a draft and teams are encouraged to form prior to registration ending.  Once registration ends we take the remaining players not on a team, and randomly assign them.  Fall season is more for skill building in game situations and less about the competition.  We do have a season ending tournament to allow for a display of progress for each team in a semi-competitive format.  Fees are $80 other than Weeball, and Weeball is $70.  Uniforms are ONLY included for Weeball.  We do put a cap on what the coach can spend at $25 for Hat and Shirt, unless they get a sponsor.  We strive to keep the fees as low as possible and still maintain good umpires, fields and facilities.

Bobcat Baseball:

Bobcat Baseball tournament teams are made up of players in our Recreational program that have the skill and desire to take their play to the next level. This program is based on competitive try-outs.

Recreational Basketball:
We are proud to offer our recreational basketball program to players ages 3-14. Our league focuses on the fundamentals of the game as well as providing an enjoyable experience for each player. Players of all skill levels are encouraged to participate. All players are accepted. Teams are formed by draft to maximize team parity in each league.  Registration typically opens up the first week of August, and games begin in November with a Jamboree.  The goal each season is for each team to play in at least 10 games, whether that is 10 regular season games, or 7 regular season and 3 tournament games, or whatever combination helps us get everyone to 10 games.  Weather (snow) sometimes causes chaos for this, but we do strive to hit the 10 game mark for everyone.  Currently we allow each team up to 6 saved players, and then the team(s) are completed with remaining unsaved players from our evaluations.  We have a point system in place to try and make the teams as even as possible.  Fees are $105, and jerseys are included for all divisions.  We strive to keep the fees as low as possible and still put out a good product.

Baseball Divisions

Age Determination:
Note that ages in Baseball are determined by how old the player is on May 1st.


4U - WeeBall:  (
Ages 3-4 Years Old)
This division is set up to allow our youngest players to come out to the ballpark and be introduced to the game of baseball through learning the fundamentals of the game. Things such as running to 1st after hitting the ball (and not 3rd) are some of the simple things the kids learn. It is amazing how much playing in this league helps the kids later on! No score is kept, outs are not counted. Each team bats their complete lineup and plays for 2 innings or 1 hour.

             

6U - TeeBall:  (Ages 5-6 Years Old)
Now the game begins. In this league players are introduced to the "official" rules of baseball. As the name implies, players hit the regulation ball off of a stationary tee. Three outs or seven runs ends the inning. The primary goal of this league is to teach kids the fundamentals of the game. Games are played during the week. This league also plays in our tournaments whenever possible.

             

8U - Coach Pitch:  (Ages 7-8 Years Old)
The game continues. Only this time the player doesn't hit off a stationary tee, it is pitched by their favorite coach! Players continue to learn the game and grow their skill with the help of our dedicated coaches. Players have the added incentive of hitting that line drive to make their coach "dance." Seeing a coach dive to get out of the way is quite a sight!

             

10U - Kid Pitch:  (Ages 9-10 Years Old)
Put me in coach - I'm ready to play! Now it is time for the coach to get back to the dugout where they belong and hand over the reins to the players. In this league each team fields their own pitcher to out maneuver their opponent. Players begin stealing, bases that is.

             

12U - Kid Pitch:  (Ages 11-12 Years Old)
The gloves are off and we come out to play. At this level players are continuing to improve and are playing "real" baseball.

             

14U - Kid Pitch:  (Ages 13-14 Years Old)
The players and coaches in this division have been at it a while. They love the game and play with passion. Come see them play, they are something to watch!
