-Closing Ceremonies: Where we take a moment to thank our players and teams once more, and recognize our Division Champions! In the Fall we recognize our “Rising Stars”, and let them play one more game of baseball; and in the Spring we recognize our All Stars as they get ready to represent our park in the State Tournament!
-Work Day: Each Friday before Opening Ceremonies where we come together to make sure our park is looking good! Always involves light work, so come ready to serve! Time TBD.

My child is ______ years old, what division should they play in?
They should play in whichever division lines up with whatever their age is on May 1st, 2022. See the Age Requirement section for additional information.
I missed assessments, can I still sign up?
As long as we have space, absolutely! Divisions fill quickly, so sign up early! Spots are 1st come 1st served. We cannot add more teams after the draft, so make sure you sign up before assessments!
What do I need to bring to asssessments?
For Assessments you should bring your glove, bat, batting helmet and probably a drink. You do not have to wear baseball pants or a jersey, though most will. Athletic clothes are just fine. Cleats are ok to wear, and it is always a good idea to wear a cup.
When will my child's Jersey come in?
Your player jersey and hat will be in before Opening Ceremonies. It will be picked up by your team manager the Friday night during the annual work day before Opening Ceremonies. If you are a part of the “late sign ups” crowd, your jersey and hat will be in as soon as possible based upon vendor availability.
My Child is not doing well with their team/coach, or their friend is on another team, can we switch to another team? Can we move up/down divisions?
To keep the draft process intact and run by integrity, we do not allow team swaps. Trust the process! They will have a great time by the season's end!
How do Assessments work, and what are they?
Your child will go through a catching, throwing, fielding, running and hitting workout. They will be graded on their performance, and drafted accordingly.
My Child would like to play on the same team as their friend, or be with a certain coach, can that happen?
Requests are just that, a request. Every effort is made to honor them, but it is ultimately up to the Managers drafting. Nothing will be done that compromises the integrity of the draft process. The only guarantee is that “same home” siblings / family must be on the same team, unless otherwise specified by the parents.
When do my child's Instructional Assessments take place?
Instructional players do not have assessments. they are placed on a team and will be contacted the weekend immediately after Assessments by their manager and at that time will learn their team names, colors, practice schedules, etc.
