What do I need to purchase?

Due to Covid-19 guidelines, we are recommending that if you are able, you supply a helmet and bat for your child.  We will not be allowed to share helmets this year.  If you are not able to purchase a helmet, your coach will assign one to your player for this season only.  

If your child has a bat, please have them bring it to each practice.  It is best if each player has their own, but if that is not possible, we will do our best to sanitize bats as often as possible.

Please plan on purchasing baseball glove, bat, helmet, and cleats (not necessary at lower levels) for your player.  In addition, a protective cup is required for male players.

  Everything that your player needs to participate is provided, except for a baseball glove, bat, cleats (not necessary at lower levels) and a protective cup for male players. Team helmets are shared so some parents prefer to buy their player his/her own helmet. All helmets must be NOCSAE approved and our bat policy is posted on our website. 

Is Fall Ball different than spring ball?

   Fall ball is designed to allow for more instructional baseball, in which your player is encouraged to "play up" in the level that he/she will be playing in during the following spring to allow them to prepare for the next level of play and get used to the rules and skill level.



What if I want to manage or coach?

Please contact the VP of the division that you are interested in participating in.



How long is the season and when does it start? 

  AA, AAA and Intermediate divisions start play in mid April and their seasons conclude with tournaments by the end of June. Rookie and A divisions start on the 1st Saturday in May and conclude by the end of June.



Do you have All-Star Teams?

Yes. We play in All-Star tournaments in July at ages 8-12. All-Star tryouts  take place in June.



What if I want more baseball for my child than just the in house season?
