Player Rating and Draft
All players in machine pitch (7& 8 year olds), minors (9 & 10 year olds), and majors (11 & 12 year olds) will be required to attend a player rating session at the GCAA complex. All players will run through a series of drills and each coach will have an opportunity to take a look at all of the “free agents”. Once the coaches complete their scoring, they will convene to begin drafting their teams. If a family has 2 children playing in the same division, those kids will be guaranteed to be on the same team unless requested otherwise by the parents. If 1 child is drafted then the other child will automatically be selected as that coaches next round pick. T Ball (4, 5, & 6 year olds) do not attend assessments. They will be randomly placed on teams by the computer.
Practice and Games
All teams will have 2 practices per week, before games start. You’ll receive additional information from your child’s coach after the coaches draft selection. Coaches and parents, please ensure you arrive to practice on time. Most coaches would like to try and have players warm up their arms just before practice time to maximize how much time can be used on the field. We have several teams that need to use our facilities and the fields are scheduled to ensure everyone receives an equal amount of time.
Games will be held Monday, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays with the exception of opening day. If games get behind at the end of the season due to weather, there is the possibillity of doing games Wednesdays or Saturdays.
Fall: Registrations are in July. Practices begin in August. Games are September and October.
Spring: Registrations are in January. Practices begin in March. Games run from late March to early June.
