Friday Night Games
Here are the times our age groups will play on Fridays:

Age Friday Night Game Time(s)
7-8YO 5:30 (only)
9 YO’s 5:30pm or 7:15pm
10-12 YO’s 5:30pm or 7:15pm

 

  • At the beginning of the season you will mark your player’s availability in SportsEngine for the 8 Friday night games
    • These games will appear in your SportsEngine app or through your account on the website (see example below)
    • 3-5 days prior to the game (Sun-Tues) you will receive a message confirming your game time and notifying you of your team color (gray or red)
    • Your player should arrive for his game time 20-30 minutes prior to warm-up

Pitching

  • 7-8 YO’s will be coach pitch
  • 9YO’s will be player pitch with an instructor and rescue pitching whereby if a pitcher throws 4 balls, a coach/instructor will pitch up to 3 strikes so that the batters can practice their hitting
  • 10-12YO’s will utilize a ball machine to preserve throwing arms during the fall season

Teams
Teams will rotate based on availability. Where possible, we will try to keep groupings of players together for consistency, but also aiming to have fair and balanced teams, while allowing for some sporadic availability of participants playing another fall sport.

Uniform Distribution
The week of Sept 6th, either at Wed night practice or prior to the game on Friday Sept. 10th, players will receive their hat and two (2!) Fall Ball shirts – one gray and one red. When you receive notice of your game time the week prior to your game, you will be told what color shirt to wear, but we will ask players to always bring both every Friday
