When does the Fall Season start? Camp sessions begin on Saturday, Sept 8 at 9 am. Camp Facilitators will call, or text to remind you of the date.

How long does the season run? The Fall Baseball Season runs 6 consecutive Saturdays, ending Saturday, October 13. 

Is Fall Season competitive, or is it a "baseball camp?  Fall Season is a Baseball Camp, with weekly scrimmage games. We will host instructional drills followed by a scrimmage game each Saturday morning.

How much does it cost? Registration fees for Fall are $75. These fees are due at the time of registration.

Are signups limited? Due to time restrictions and the nature of the program, each division is limited to 25 campers, which provides a  much higher coach-to-camper ratio, and allows for more one-on-one instruction for the kids.  If the rosters are full, you may request to be put on a waiting list. Historically, both divisions fill before the end of signups, so sign up early to reserve your spot.

I have more than one child, and money's a little tight. Are there any sibling discounts? We don't offer sibling discounts for Fall Season, but fees are more more affordable, as we don't require Fundraising or  fees other than the $75 registration fee in Fall.

Is Fundraising required? Fundraising is not required for the Fall Season.

What does the cost cover? In return for your registration fees, your child receives a T-shirt and hat, and a snack each week We are a non-profit organization. Everything is put back into the League. Your fees also cover the material costs of running the League -  water and utilities for the fields, baseball equipment, and maintenance of the grounds.

Can I pay my fees by credit card or check? Returning players may mail their forms in with a check to cover the fees. If you come to one of our signup sessions, you may pay by cash, check, or credit or debit card. A 3% processing fee will be assessed if you use a credit or debit card.

Is my child too old / too young for your League? If your child is not yet 5 by April 30, 2018, he/she is underage. If your child turns 14 before June November 5, 2017, he/she is too old to play in this League. NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE GRANTED FOR OVERAGE CHILDREN! Underage exemptions may be granted on appeal.

My child has no baseball experience. Can he/she still play? Absolutely! We believe that everybody has to start somewhere. We have some beginners in every division. We do ask that you play some "catch" with your child as often as possible.

Are there "tryouts" for this League? There are no tryouts - if you sign up, you play baseball. Also, we do not hold player evaluations for Fall Baseball.

We had an unpleasant experience with another league. What makes your League different? We are an independent League and not governed by the policies of larger organization. For the last ten years, we have partnered with the national renown Positive Coaching Alliance (www.positivecoach.org). They are a non-profit organization out of Stanford University whose main goals include dispelling the "Win at all cost" mentality that is prevalent in youth sports today. We realize that winning is one of the goals of all sporting events, but a second, more important goal of a youth sports organization should be to use the contests to teach life lessons. All of our coaches, managers, and board are required to attend a PCA workshop annually. All coaches, managers, and other volunteers will be asked to submit to a LiveScan background check as well.

I've heard this League isn't that competitive. Is that true? Judge for yourself. Several of our alumni have played or are playing successfully at high school and college levels.

I'd like to help coach my child's team. What are the requirements for coaches? As noted above, coaches are requires to attend a one-evening Positive Coaching Workshop in February. If you missed the February clinic, you may make it up by completing the online Double Goal Coach workshop - you may be responsible for a course fee. We will have a LiveScan mobile unit onsite at both of our live Workshops (beginner and advanced) to allow you to tackle the LiveScan requirement conveniently. Check our Coaches Corner Page for other LiveScan options.
