How are teams formed?
For baseball leagues 4U-6U, the league will form each team based on returning players/returning teams and team/friend requests. For leagues 8U and above, the league does not assign players to a team unless they played on that team in the prior season. Each player new to the league or those that wish not to return to their previous team will attend a brief evaluation process and coaches will draft those players onto their team on the date teams are formed. All players will be placed on a team.
What if I'm a new coach/new team?
If you are a coach that wants to start a new team and are coaching a 4U, 5U, or 6U team, you are able to pick your full team's roster. If you are coaching a team in leagues 8U and older, you are allowed to start off your team with up to a maximum of 3 players of your choosing (14U league is allowed to start off a new team w a maximum of 6 players). The rest of your team will be filled via our draft process and will consist of those players that attend an evaluation session. Those players that do not attend an evaluation session will be placed on a team via a blind pick by the coach.
When are games played and when are practices held?
Games are played on Saturday mornings/afternoons with some teams also having games on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings. The league generally does not schedule games on Wednesday or Friday evenings unless it is necessary due to rain outs. Practices dates and times will vary depending on the specific coach. The coach is responsible for finding practice space and setting up practice schedules after the season begins.
