(1)     – Rainout dates will be scheduled in advance on some Sundays in May and June.

(2)     – There is a possibility at this level we may play a couple of games against a neighboring community.

(3)     There is a $25 early registration discount if done by March 1,  2020 (except for T-ball).

(4)     Any registration taken after March 15, 2020 will incur a $25 late fee (except for T-ball).

  

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT WAITLISTING  FOR THE FOLLOWING AGE GROUPS:

Triple A Baseball, Minor Baseball, Majors Baseball, Junior Softball, Senior Softball

-          Each of these age groups have been set-up to start a waitlist after a certain amount of registrations have taken place (Please see individual registration for details). 

-          We have done this based on registration levels over the previous 3 seasons and the fact that we have run into an issue where we don’t have enough kids sign up to form another team at a particular level.  This has led us to either place too many kids on a team or we had to turn away kids after they have already registered.  Both of which we feel are not in the best interests of our program.   That said once we get enough players on the waitlist to form another team at that particular level we will certainly do so as we want as many kids playing in our program as possible.  

-          Here is an example to illustrate what we are talking about:

o   Senior Softball will start a waitlist after 13 kids (Note: Each age group listed above will have their own waitlist number specified).  If we have 11-13 girls on the waitlist we will form a 2nd team.  Once we have 26 girls registered we will move them from the waitlist to being officially registered and then start the waitlist at 27 girls. 

 

Player Evaluations

Player Skills Evaluations will take place on Sunday March 8th, 2020 at the Vernon Hills High School Fieldhouse. These skill evaluations are not mandatory but highly recommended so that we can form as evenly balanced teams as possible. The schedule is as follows:

Level

Time

Double A (Baseball)

9:00 AM – 10:15 AM

Triple A (Baseball)

10:30 AM – 11:30 PM

Minors (Baseball)

11:30 AM – 12:30 PM

Majors (Baseball)

11:30 AM – 12:30 PM

Sophomore (Softball)

1:00 PM – 2:00 PM

Junior (Softball)

2:15 PM – 3:15 PM

Senior (Softball)

2:15 PM – 3:15 PM

*T-Ball, Single A, and Freshman Softball will not participate in Player Evaluations.  These levels will have teams formed based on friend requests where possible and primary school the child attends.

 

1.       Teams will be formed in mid to late March. 

2.       Outdoor practices will begin week of April 1st weather permitting.

3.       Opening Day will be Saturday May 16th with the following exceptions:

a.       Minors & Majors will start games in mid April.  We will try and schedule a home game on Saturday May 16th for our Minors and Majors teams.

b.      Senior Softball season will begin at end of May. This is due to the fact that some girls may be playing on a high school team and IHSA rules prohibit them from playing on another team while their season is in progress.

4.       Season will end by July 4th with following exception:

a.       Senior Softball will end by the end of July.
