FAQ



When Are Games and Practices?

There are no schedules published until registration is complete. We cannot make schedules until we know how many kids are signed up and how many teams we need to create. Every team will play one evening during the week and then on one of our Saturday timeslots. Every week the day and time will rotate.  We do this for two reasons, number one so that kids that are in other activities on specific days can also participate in baseball, number two, baseball needs to be played on a diamond and there's only so much diamond space available.

Take softball for example, we have two diamonds, 
if we have a division with six teams it is mathematically impossible for all six teams to play on the same night. 

 If a kid has swimming every Wednesday he may only miss one or two games during the year.  If his team always played on Wednesdays then he would not be able to participate.

Saturday time slots are 930,1130,130 and 330. Weekday games start at 6pm. We also have some night games for our divisions with kids age 11u and older. These are held at 730pm or 8pm.

Practice schedules for pre-season will be distributed in late March early April (weather depending), Game schedules will be published in April. After the season starts, coaches are responsible for scheduling practices.

Tee Ball practices typically start one week before opening day. Notifications typically go out in the middle of April.

Senior divisions typically start in late May to avoid conflicts with High School games. Schedules come out in late April early May.


Can My Son/Daughter Play Up or Down Their Age Group?

No. We do not alllow any kids to play in a division that is not their age group.

Team Calendar:

If you have copied your child's team calendar feed to your personal digital calendar such as Outlook or Google or thinking about doing it in the future this note is for you.

To reiterate, if you are using a 3rd party calendar it will not be synced if changes to the schedule are made.
 
Smartphone App
Please download the "Dicks TSHQ" app from the app store or google play store. The app is the best/easiest way to communicate with your whole team, coaches and view all your children's schedules in one pace.

Additional Practices
Your coach may or may not schedule additional practices outside the official schedule, but he or she will communicate those directly to you.
