Registration Help:

  • Register your child using their league age date. This means use their age as of May 1, 2019 for Baseball, and January 1, 2019 for Softball. Do not use the age of the player on the day you are registering. 
  • On a full-screen or PC internet browser, hover the cursor over Player Registrations, from the drop-down menu, select your division. Baseball Registrations for boys ages 4 and up, Softball Registrations for girls ages 5 and up, and 4U Co-ed Registrations for boys and girls ages 3 to 4. 
  • On a mobile internet browser, scroll down and select View more next to Registrations. A drop-down list will appear where you can select the gender/age division for the guidelines listed above.

Definitions:

  • League - We have three leagues: 4U Coed, Baseball and Softball.
  • Division - A division is an age group that defines the level of play. We have several divisions that you can register for:
    • 4U COED: 3-4 year olds (also its own division)
    • 6U Teeball: 4-6 year olds (or "6U" for 6 and Under)
    • 7U Coach Pitch: 6-7 year olds (7U)
    • 8U Coach Pitch:  6-8 year olds (8U)
    • 9U Kid Pitch (first year of kid pitch): 8-9 year olds (9U)
    • 10U Kid Pitch (first year of kid pitch): 8-10 year olds (10U)
    • 11U: 10-11 year olds (11U)
    • 12U: 10-12 year olds (12U)
    • 14U: 12-14 year olds (14U)
  • League Age - Each league has two league ages - an upper and a lower, which are determined by a player's actual age vs the age cutoff date for a particular league, based on USSSA's age rules for baseball or PONY's age rules for softball. Age cutoff dates are: May 1 for boys baseball and January 1 for girls softball leagues.  League age may be different than the player's actual age at the time of registration or even the date on which a season's games start.  Please pay close attention and answer the league age question accurately in the form field within the registration program during the registration process, as we use those numbers to sort players for tryouts and drafts. 
    • Example 1: A boy baseball player is 9 years old when registration for 10U occurred in December, but will turn 10 on March 30.  Since he will be 10 years old on or before the age cutoff, as mentioned above, he is league age 10, even though he is 9 when you signed him up.
    • Example 2: The boy baseball player elects to play up (see Play Up Rule below) and is 8 years old at the time of registration for 10U, and will not turn 9 until May 12. He is eligible to play up, and will be league age "Play Up 9" on the registration form, since that is the lowest league age for 10U.  
    • Example 3: A girl softball player is 10 years old when you sign her up on December 1, but turns 11 on December 20. She played 10U last season, but now becomes a league age 11 player in 12U.
  • Play up Rule - Options for play ups are as follows:
    • A player that is one league age (refer to league age definition above) below may elect to play up into the league directly above for the entire season, beginning with 8U Coach Pitch and extending through older leagues.  Example: baseball player is 8 years old by May 1, 2019 but with a birthday on August 27. He is eligible to play up into 10U Kid Pitch in spring season 2019 (but not 12U) even though he will not be 9 until August.  This applies to all age groups EXCEPT 4U/Tee Ball.  A player that is not yet 5 by May 1, cannot play up an entire season into Tee Ball.  Additionally, in the example above, if the player is still 7 years old on May 1, he is not eligible to play up into 10U.  Again, to play up an entire season, the player must only be one league age below.  These decisions should be well thought out by parents/guardians before the online registration is filled out. That said, our registration programs will only allow a play up registration of a player one league below (again, beginning with 8U Coach Pitch).  During registration, you will see an option for "Play Up (age)" in the "League Age" form field.  Please fill this out accurately so league age will be reflected appropriately in our reports. 
    • A player may be selected to play up in a game-by-game scenario in the event a team in the league above cannot field a team.  In this case, the temporary play up player simply must be in the league directly below the league that he/she would play up into for a particular game (does not have to be one league age below as in the rule stated above).  This applies to all leagues equally, with one exception - a 3 year old 4U player may not play up in a Tee Ball game.  4U temporary play up players must be 4 years old. In all other temporary, one game play up cases, the "one league age below" rule does not apply.  Other conditions in this rule are:
      • The play up player must not miss his/her own team's game in order to play up with a team in the league above. (you can't skip your game to play up into another one)
      • The play up player must bat last and play outfield in the play up game.  No exceptions.
      • The coach using the play up player must report the play up player to the opposing coach and umpires before the game starts.
      • In all leagues and divisions, including 6U Tee Ball and 8U Coach Pitch, we may allow 10 (sometimes more if necessary) players to play defensively, however a complete team is technically 9. If a team in Tee Ball or Coach Pitch has 11 players but is missing two players for a particular game, he is not eligible to call up a play up player.  In all leagues, the entire roster bats in the lineup and a team will not have to take an out for missing players, unless the team is reduced to 8 players.  In that case, the team is eligible to utilize a play up player.
      • No more than three play up players may be utilized at one time on one team.
