SCARSDALE FALL BASEBALL - REGISTRATION OPEN AND INPUT REQUESTED
by posted 08/16/2014
 

**Attention: Lengthy and informative Email**

Scarsdale Little League wants to invite you to sign up your children for what promises to be a great fall season!  We have already sent messages about dall development clinics conducted by Professional coaches.  Signup has been strong.

This messages has additional information about 1, and possibly 2 other programs for children not only in 4th through 8th grade but also for all players 8 years old and older.

**We need your input**

 

1a) Fall Baseball League (4th and 5th/6th)

We will of course have our traditional baseball program for 4th graders and a combined "in-town" league for 5th/6th graders.   The program is open to all incoming 4th – 6th graders. There are no tryouts.    

The season will likely have all games on Saturdays at Noon (this time may change if we find conflicts) starting on September 13th. The season will last from 6 – 8 weeks. 

Practices will be left to the discretion of the parent coaches (volunteers requested in registration) and the cost of the program is $150.

To register your child, please click on the following hyperlinks:  

4th Grade Fall Registration or:  http://assn.la/Reg/?r=3:67033 

5th/6th Grade Fall Registration or: http://assn.la/Reg/?r=3:67034

 

1b) 7th/8th Grade (13U Travel Baseball)

We also plan to form a travel team for 7th/8th graders, as we have done in the past, to play in either the WBA (Westchester Baseball Association ) or D20.    As noted above, these are competitive leagues and tryouts will be held on September 2nd.    

If you are interested, please click on the following hyperlink

Fall Travel Baseball – 7th and 8th grade or http://assn.la/Reg/?r=3:67035 


Registration will not require payment until you are selected to a team (payment for those on the team will be approximately $400). 

 

2) ***Fall Travel Baseball Program– Important Input requested ***

Due to the success of some of the newer travel programs in the area, we have received numerous inquiries about Scarsdale entering Fall baseball travel teams in the (WBA) at earlier age levels.  Historically, we have only entered a 13U team in the Fall.

The Westchester Baseball Association is a competitive age-based travel program with leagues in the Fall for ages 8 – 13.  Little League International, the official governing body for youth baseball,  uses April 30th as the cutoff for the ages.  A child turning 9 on May 15th, for example, would play 8U. 

As noted above, we will still be running our traditional fall in-house/in-town program, but we would like to gauge the level of interest in having Scarsdale fall travel baseball teams as well.

Details: The travel season would run from the weekend after Labor Day through the playoffs in the first week of November.    There will likely be two games per week and one practice. 

We have been told that we can inform the WBA of any conflicts and they will do their best to schedule games to avoid conflicts.  For example, last year there were numerous doubleheaders on Sunday morning.            

If you would potentially like to participate, please send e-mail to    by Friday, August 22nd with the following information:

  1. Player’s name/Grade (entering)/Date of Birth;
  2. Potential conflicts with other sports/activities (with days of the week if you have them);
  3. Whether you are registering in our fall in house program and if so, whether you would continue to participate in the in-house program if your child were selected to play on a Travel team. This information is necessary because it will be difficult to have the Travel program if it will cause us to lose the players necessary to field teams in our traditional in-house league,
  1. Whether you would be able to commit to playing in the majority of games. This is also important since we need to be able to count on having enough players every week.        

Please know that unlike our in-house program where all can participate, Travel programs are more competitive and we are likely to have try-outs (and therefore selections) the first week of September (likely on September 2nd).   The approximate cost of the program would be $300.

Once we gather your input, we will seek approval from the Scarsdale Recreation Department for the fall program if there is sufficient interest and of course keep you informed.

Should you have questions, please write   .  
 
We look forward to seeing your children in the fall.

Play Ball!
