Divisions and Expectations

Blast Ball

Player expectations: your child will play one time per week from early April to mid June. There will be one weekend session each week.  Each session will be up to 1.5 hours long. The goal is for the kids to have fun learning fundamental baseball skills like throwing, catching, and hitting while also learning the basic rules of baseball. 

Parent expectations: at this level we expect parents to stay at the park. If you are unavailable to stay please ask another parent to keep an eye on your child. The managers, coaches and coordinators are volunteers focused on the baseball so are unable to take kids to the bathroom, keep track of belongings, etc. Most teams welcome parents to jump in and help out during practices and games at this level.

Volunteer commitment: Blast ball parents are required to complete two scheduled volunteer shifts per child (to a maximum of 4 shifts per family) – most of these shifts will be in the concession however additional opportunities will be made available throughout the season. In addition, parents are expected to help at the team level by preparing and taking down the field. The volunteer shifts contribute to essential core funding of the league and also give you a chance to get to know other families in our community. It is usually a lot of fun. 

Cost: The registration fee covers equipment usage plus a team shirt, hat and a team and individual photo for each player to keep. It also covers operational costs for the league.

If your child is independent, calm, and focused it may be fine to leave him or her. However, if your child is likely to require extra attention to stay on task or keep track of his or her belongings, please remain on site at the park so the coaches can remain focused on baseball/softball.
