Guidelines to be followed: 1. Federal, state and local guidelines must be the highest priority. 2. Proper personal hygiene and COVID 19 guidelines must be practiced at all activities. 

1. RETURN TO PRACTICE 

  • Any player or coach who is not feeling well, has a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher, or has symptoms identified by the CDC (CDC Symptoms Here) shall not attend any practice or event. Players will not be reprimanded for not attending. 

  • It is recommended all participants wash their hands prior to and after activity. 

  • Face coverings MUST be present and worn at all team practices and events for all coaches, officials and spectators. 

  • All players at a field MUST wear face coverings going to and from the field, while in the dugout and while not actively playing. While players are actively participating on-field, they do not have to wear their face covering.  The preference is to not use the dugout at all, but rather space 6ft apart along the fence.

  • All participants are recommended to have their own hand sanitizer with them at activities. 

  • It is suggested that Coaches have disinfectant at the field and use it on all equipment in case equipment has to be shared  (team, and individual players). No equipment should be shared between players. This is a precautionary measure.

  • All participants must have their own hydration containers. No sharing of containers. 

  • Social distancing shall be maintained at all times. Players, spectators, officials and/or coaches shall not congregate in close

    areas before, during or after activity. When social distancing of 6 feet cannot be maintained, a face covering must be worn.
  • All Coaches MUST maintain an attendance log of practices and games and a current roster for their team.  This is required to aid public health officials in their tracing abilities shall an exposure occur.

  • As facilities come available, guidelines may be in place restricting the number of participants in a group. Teams must adhere to those guidelines at all times.  

  • Spectators are strongly discouraged. If a household must remain at practice, social distancing of 6 feet from players, coaches and other households must be maintained and face coverings must be worn.

All participants at the field should adhere to the following:

  • NO spitting

  • NO sunflower seeds

  • NO chewing tobacco or spitting out of gum

  • NO sharing hydration containers

  • NO sharing equipment

We recommend all participating families adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Not drop off or pick up your player in an area where another family is dropping off or picking up their player.

  • Not congregating with other households at the field.

  • Please practice social distancing and wear masks whenever possible at the field.

 

DUE TO EFFORTS TO MINIMIZE THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE AT A FIELD, PLEASE ARRIVE NO MORE THAN 5 MINUTES BEFORE YOUR SCHEDULED PRACTICE TIME AND YOU MUST LEAVE IMMEDIATELY UPON PRACTICE COMPLETION. 

  • Leave the field as soon as reasonably possible when practice is completed. Wash your hands thoroughly or use a hand sanitizer after coming off the field. No extra-curricular or social activity shall take place. No congregation after playing. 

2. RETURN TO COMPETITION 

  • Event guidelines must be adhered to at all times. 

  • Our “Return to Practice” guidelines shall be adhered to, if event guidelines are less stringent. 

  • Social distancing in the dugout area shall be maintained to the best of participants ability.

Divisions and Ages

 

Player and team placement is based on 2021 Spring Season Play. Players entering High School this fall are not eligible.

Fall baseball is intended to allow players to get experience and prepare for the grade/age level they will be participating in the coming spring season. For that reason players are primarily placed based on the grade they will be going into in the coming fall school season. For example the 6-8 and 8u age division are generally made up of K, 1st graders and 2nd graders; the 9/10 division is 3rd and 4th graders; 11/12 is 5th and 6th graders; 13's are 7th graders and 14's are 8 graders. No player entering their freshman year of high school is eligible to participate.

Divisions within each age group will be formed based on number of teams, the competitive and skill levels of the players, and other factors.

6-8 is an open division. Meaning players and teams of all skill levels will play together. This is a modified kids pitch league intended for the younger players to get experiance seeing pitches from other players. There are some special rules that apply only to the 6-8 division. Please see rules link below for more information.

8u is an open division. This division is intended for the younger players to compete at the highest skill level and for those players ready for the next level of baseball. There are some special rules that apply only to the 8u division. Please see rules link below for more information.

9/10D3 is a developmental division. This divsion is inteneded for those 3rd and 4th graders that may be new to baseball or those players just finishing their last years of coach pitch or modified kids pitch baseball. This division will help players get ready for spring baseball and having kids pitch to them all the time. There are some special rules that apply only to the 9/10D3 division. Please see rules link below for more information.

D1 - This is for teams and players at the highest skill levels and experience. Teams that were majors level or high level AAA this past spring would likely fall into this division. Depending on registrations and particiapation mid to low level AAA teams and players could end up in D1

D2 - This is for teams and players that are looking for a higher competition level than the beginner/develomental D3 and for the older AA and lower level AAA teams and players for the mixed age divisions.

D3 - This is for teams and players that are beginners to baseball, need some more playing time to develop their skills or are the younger AAA teams and AA teams and players for the mixed age divisions.
