Season

The season starts at the end of April. It is a 10 game season with games on weeknights. Practices will be up to the coach as to when and where. 

Affiliation

Our 3rd-8th grade age groups are affiliated with the Utah Boy’s Baseball Association (UBBA). A state tournament will be held by the UBBA the week of July 12.  Games could be played any day that week during the day or evenings.  Top teams from the local tournament will be eligible to compete in the state tournament.

If we do not have enough of our own teams in the 9th-12th grade age groups will be combined with American Fork’s Colt league.  Games may be played at Saratoga Springs Patriot Park, American Fork Rotary Park, or Pleasant Grove Manila Park.

Team Creation

Per UBBA guidelines all teams must be created with a tryout/draft process.  No teammate requests can be taken for this program.  The tryout/draft will be held at the end of March. The tryouts/draft will be held at Patriot Park at 444 E. 400 S.  Participants will be notified via email of details as the date approaches.  

Because of COVID-19 we had to hold blind drafts last season.  In normal years a child returning in the same age division would automatically be placed on the same team as the previous year.  But because of the blind draft teams will be re-drafted from scratch this year to help make teams as evenly created as possible.

Colt league teams can put themselves together or request friends.   

Tryout/Draft Dates and Times  

Age groups will be split into groups in an effort to keep the tryouts as short as possible for each child.  Please show up at your child’s assigned group time. Please bring a mitt to the tryouts.  We will provide bats and balls.  The tryout will consist of an opportunity to show hitting skills with 5 pitches pitched from a machine, running as they will run to first after 5 pitches, catching as they will field a throw from short stop, and finally fielding at short stop and throwing to first.

Coaches Needed

As with all of our programs we depend on volunteers to coach our teams.  We greatly appreciate our volunteers and encourage everyone to volunteer if you are able.  To volunteer to help coach a team please sign up during the registration process.  As a thank you to all our head coaches we give a $40 credit after the season is completed to go towards a future Saratoga Springs Recreation program.
