When will I know what team my child is on?

  • It is our plan to draft at or soon after our coaches meeting, (mid-March).  For players age 9 and Once the coaches complete their drafts your coach will contact you.

Are siblings placed on the same team?

  • Yes – for Tee Ball and Coach Pitch siblings are placed on the same team.  For pitching machine and above brothers are placed together on baseball teams and sisters are placed together on softball teams.

What do I do if I have not heard from my child’s coach?

Can my child play above or below the age appropriate division?

  • Players are occasionally placed above or below the normal division for their age based on their ability or other factors.  Due to safety concerns and the need to have appropriate numbers on each team this will need to be approved by the coaches involved and the division director.

  • The league provides balls, bats and catching gear and the parent will provide the mitt.
