Registration is March 1 to April 19. 

The registration fees are:

  • If you miss the registration deadline you will be placed on a wait list.  If there is room on a team you will be contacted to sign up.  A $10 fee will apply to those coming off the wait list.

All players are required to have a Saratoga Springs jersey.  They are the same reversible jerseys we have used in past seasons of soccer and flag football. If you need one, they are $12.  If you have one that still fits, you do not need to buy a new one.

Season

The season starts the week of May 24th. It is an 8 game season. T-Ball and Coach Pitch will play 2 games a week most weeks.  One game on a weeknight and one game on a Saturday most weeks.  Machine Pitch will play 5 games on Saturdays and 3 weeknight games.  All games will be at local parks. Practices will be up to the coach as to when and where for T-ball and Coach Pitch. Practices for Machine Pitch will be organized to allow the use of the pitching machines.

Ages

We offer T-ball for Pre-K and Kindergarten. In order to register for Pre-K, your child needs to turn 4 before the first game. Coach Pitch is offered for 1st graders. Machine Pitch is offered for 2nd graders. Grade is determined by what grade they are currently in and will be finishing this spring.

Equipment

Hats will be provided. Each player is responsible for their own mitt.  

T-ball and Coach Pitch coaches will be provided with 2 bats, baseballs, and a tee if applicable.  Machine Pitch coaches will not be provided with equipment since the equipment will be kept at the park for practices and games.
