When will I hear from my child’s Coach?
Coaches will not receive their rosters or practice schedules until the very end of March. They will be calling the first week of April.
When do Practices start?
Practices start the first week of April.
Please be patient. Some coaches are working, may be out of town and each will start when they are able.
When will I know our practice schedule?
Your coach will call with your practice schedule once they receive their teams and schedules.
What if I have not heard from my child’s coach?
Please give them until the end of the first week of April to contact you via email or phone.
What does my child need for baseball, softball, or tee ball?
All players need a glove and water for practices. All children receive a Jersey and hat the week before games start. Tee ball players can wear black shorts and tennis shoes. Baseball and softball players will need baseball or softball pants and socks. Please wait to purchase until your coach decides on what color pants and for the color of your team for the socks. There will be helmets in the coaches’ bag to share. Boys Instructional up is required to wear a cup.
Where do I get items they need to play?
The park provides the Jersey and hat. There are helmets to share in the coach’s bag. We have a borrow program at the park office (as they grow so fast!). You can borrow these and give them back or to another player that can use them when done. Play it Again Sports has great equipment and Walmart carries most everything needed too!
When do games start?
Games start the first week of May.
When will the game schedule be out?
Game schedules do not come out until the second week of April. They will be given to the coaches. They will also be linked on your rec desk page for all divisions except MERBL (Boys AA and Boys AAA)
When do the games end?
League games are set to end pending any delays by June 30th. Instructional Divisions up have optional team playoffs immediate after their last league games end. Tee Ball does not play in the playoffs, so they are done after their league games are complete!
Does my child receive a medal?
Tee Ball players and Instructional player receive medals. Rookie and up receive 1st and 2nd place medals only.
What days of the weeks are games/practices?
Practices and games run throughout the week depending on the division and coach’s availability, then on Saturday mornings. Generally, there is a practice or a game during the week, then one on Saturday morning.
Can I request a coach/teammate?
There is a place in registration to request a teammate. This is not guaranteed.
Can my child play up/down a division?
Your child may play up, but we do not allow players to play down in age/grade.
