We requested a coach/teammate during registration. Will organizers take this information into consideration? In the T-Ball division, organizers make every effort to honor teammate and coach requests.

Is there player training I can do before and during the season? Tips for Parents and Players webpage has info on developing drills at home, plus the location of batting cages.

Can my child "move-up" to another division? Yes.  We use a special evaluation for 6, 8, and 10-year-olds.  Moving up means your child will be with older children who are in different emotional and physical stages of life.

Can I get a refund if my child decides to not play? Requests for refunds should be emailed to [email protected]. As a rule, refunds are not offered once the uniforms have been ordered, which is the day after the draft in mid-March
