REQUESTS
We humbly request that you remind your children that participation in Homeschool Baseball requires a kind and helpful spirit, good sportsmanship, and modest dress (no short shorts or bare midriffs). Thank you for your cooperation with these requests.

BASIC INFORMATION:
(CLICK HERE FOR OUR FAQ SHEET)

All fields will play baseball except for the 3-5-year-old t-ball team and any all-girl teams and the older co-ed team, which will play softball. If you have a 3-5 year old playing t-ball, please note that you will need to stay at the t-ball field with your child.

Field placements will be sent via email. If you don’t have email, stop by the picnic table at field 2 when you arrive the first day to see which fields will be hosting your children’s age groups. As you register, we will assign your child to a field based on age. If your child needs to be on an older or younger team based on his size or physical ability, please make a note on your registration form. We make every effort to accommodate all special requests, but we cannot guarantee to do so and appreciate your understanding of our limitations.
REGISTRATION FEES
The registration fee for each season is $10 per player with a maximum registration fee of $40 per family. This fee covers liability insurance, equipment needs, an end-of-season party, and team photos. Homeschool Baseball hats and t-shirts (optional) are available for $5 per item (not included in registration fee or family maximum).

To register, please mail in your registration form, payment, and signed Statement of Agreement. We need to receive all registrations by March 25, 2014 for the spring season. On applications after those dates, a $3 late fee PER CHILD will be imposed above and beyond family maximum, and a $5 late fee on the starting day. Please tell your friends NOW (not the week before we start playing!) and get your own forms in as soon as possible to avoid the extra fee. We have grown so tremendously that we will be cutting off registration at about 24 children per field. We did have to turn some children away last season, so be sure to register promptly and reserve your child a place on a team.

After you have registered, we will NOT contact you again before the first game day unless you provide us with your email address, in which case you will be notified on which field your child will play.



2014 SPRING BALL:

The season will begin on April 1st and end on May 20th played every Tuesday, weather permitting, from 12:00-2:00 for most teams (a little less for the younger teams). In the event a game must be canceled, all families will be notified by email by 10:30am. If there is no email message by 10:30, assume that we are playing. Those without email will receive a phone call if we must cancel play.

VOLUNTEER POSITION DUTIES





As an all-volunteer league, we are dependent on ALL parents to volunteer for some position, especially as coaches and assistant coaches. Consider asking available grandparents, older siblings, or family friends if they would like to help out with these positions. Please prayerfully read over the responsibilities and see if you can offer your assistance. Coaches may deduct one child’s registration fee, but NOT the shirt/hat fee. If you volunteer to coach on your registration form, you may assume that you are needed whether or not you have been contacted. Please come prepared to coach and we will have equipment for you.
