Frequently Asked Questions

What Equipment do we need to buy, and what will be furnished?

With your registration, we will provide a jersey and hat for each player.
Your player will need a batting helmet, baseball glove, cleats, and a USA bat (if this is their first bat, you may want to wait until practice/etc so your player can try and 'size-up' other kids bats, in order to see what fits their size/ability first).  Click HERE to see bat regulations.
They will also need socks, pants, and a belt. Your coach will tell you what colors to buy for those items, so you can wait to get that until your coach contacts you after we have created the teams. 

When will we have practices?

After our draft, you should be contacted by your coach. 
The coach will set your practice schedule and locations. 

When does the season start?  How long is the season?  What days will they play?

For Spring, we are planning on playing 12 games in 9 weeks (11 total weeks, with Spring Break and All-Star Break included).  So, there will be 2 weeks that the kids will have to play 2 games (Opening Day will count as one of the 12 games).
We are anticipating a season start date of 2/27/21, running through 5/11/21.  We have tried to create space in the schedule in order to better allow coaches to have at least 1 practice per week, once games are underway.   
Final scheduling for is subject to actual registration numbers.  We are planning on having the 4U, 6U, and 8U play on either Tuesdays or Thursdays (or both), while 10U, 12U, and 14U will play on Mondays and possibly Thursdays (or both).  Fridays and Saturdays are designated for makeup games, as needed.  We have 3 dates already scheduled on the calendar which is available HERE.
Again, actual scheduling depends on the registration numbers that we have and how many teams are formed.

Where do we go to sign up?  How do I register my kid?  How much is it?

You should receive a confirmation email once your child is registered.

In person.  We will have two in-person registrations at Kate Barr Ross Park baseball 4-plex on 1/9 and 1/23 from 10am-2pm.  We will register you online while there, but you will have the ability to pay cash or check.

Our standard Spring registration fee is $150. Due to the successful registration numbers for our newest age group, we are again offering the 4U Foal division for this Spring. We have priced this division at $90, because we understand that there are a lot of first-time players in this division and initial equipment purchases can be a burden. We were also able to reduce the price for this division because the 4U Foal division is strictly instructional, without umpires. Our 6U Shetland and 8U Pinto divisions received a reduced price of $130, because our umpire fees are less for these divisions.

"LEAGUE AGE"   My child is 4, but the only program available is 6U.

Are you confused about the age brackets and the divisions?  Don't feel bad.  There are many people asking the same questions.  So, we wanted to try and explain/clarify that here.

Here's how the age bracket works (I will use a DOB of 8/17/2016, for our example).
Per the PONY (our governing organization) bracket, the player in our scenario would have been considered to have a "league age" of 4 for last Spring (2020), because PONY's age bracket for 2020 is from 9/1/2019 to 8/31/2020.

We purposely setup the Spring 2021 divisions to utilize the correct ‘league age’ that your child should fall under.
In our scenario above, the player's "league age" for Spring of 2021 will be 5, because he/she will turn 5 between 9/1/20 and 8/31/21.

We only allow 1 division as a choice, because it makes registration so much easier for our board, as well as the parents.  We used to have parents that mistakenly signed their 4-year-old up in the 8U division (for example).  If you feel that your player (according to this scenario) shouldn't be playing in the age group that is shown for them, please email us with your concerns.

PONY's age bracket is the same as the Texas schools, so your player should be playing with the kids that are in their grade.  So, in our scenario, the other kids in his/her grade should be in 6U as well.
