Guidelines for Baseball Teams structure and forming.  WALLEN COMPLEX

 

 

 

1.         Team consist of volunteer Head Coach, and 2 assistant coaches. Depending on each year the number of registration and volunteer coaches we have.  The following rules will go into affect if we don’t have enough coaches to players to roster under the number of 13 boys:   IF we don’t get enough head coaches to keep roster to a min.   Then Teams may not be able to carry 2 assistant coaches, unless they were on last year roster.  Any of the new teams will be limited to 1 asst. coach.  Explanation is that we will need for some new or old Asst. Coaches to step up and Head coach a new team.

2.       If an assistant coach steps up from current team or thru registration and takes over as a head coach of new team they will be allowed to have 2 asst. coaches of their own, but have to be register online thru our website for back ground checks prior to week before each draft. And also must be under the rule of Min. number of kids on roster of 13.   So example would be if we have 6 head coaches and we have enough to create 2 or 3 more teams then still has to keep us 13 and under after the 2 or 3 teams.   We will not allow 2 asst. only 1 for a new or old team till we can say that our min. number of boys is going to be at 13 or less,  with allowance for late registration on average 10 spots.  So if we have 72 kids we would have 6 teams we will allow for 10 spots from there so would need 7 teams.  Would put us at 10.5.

3.       Determination on the teams will be on the Baseball Board Drafting committee.  This will need to be determined by 3/1 on initial numbers for coach search by 3/10 would need a set amount of teams

 

4.       Head Coaches that start the season with the asst. coaches, listed at or prior to draft night from prior year roster in new division.  Are classified as assistant, no new asst. coaches will be allowed on that team unless have a sponsor pick to use for that asst. and his boy.

 

5.       Only if the assistant listed on prior chooses to be re-enter the draft for tryouts and listed on their registration they are wanting to reenter into the draft from prior year teams.  A head coach can then pick up a new asst. coach and his kid.

 

6.       The Assistant must notify prior to 3/10 that they didn’t attend to enter draft want to stay on team.  No matter what is explanation the asst. coach cannot say he is not asst. coaching.  He still listed as a asst. coach for the next year.  Unless he leaves the team or park for min. of one year.

 

7.       No kids from prior year roster who fails to register prior to Sunday before their draft night will not be allowed to be put back on that roster unless the head coach choose to use draft pick with in the snake draft, or sponsor pick.  NO asst. coach can be late as in prior list all asst. coaches will be set prior to 3/10.

 

8.       Asst. coaches and Head coach’s kids will be placed prior to draft night.  Not necessarily night of Grading must be fair.

 

9.       Spring Season is tied into the Fall season of same year, but the kids in fall from prior year will not be part of future Spring season.   Spring rosters will be used for Spring roster year to year.

 

       Rules for Sponsorship for teams 

 

1.       Types of Sponsorships:  Team Sponsor, Field Sign, or Scoreboard Sign

Sponsorship application has to be submitted by 3/10/2018 all sponsorship logos. Color schemes and money needs to be paid by 3/10/2018.

2.       We offer a team sponsor and if team sponsorship is full we will use the sponsorship money to do 2 field signs for 3 years.  So. one example would be if 2 parents have a sponsor for the team.  We will either by choice of parent to put their child on that team or be moved to a team that needs a sponsor.   The team that kid was on will only have 2 team sponsor picks.  Sponsorship follows the player not team.

3.       No sponsor legacy, may be allowed 2 sponsor picks.

4.       New sponsorships new to the division is allowed 2 sponsor picks the first year only.

5.       Renewal Sponsorship in the 2nd year or 3rd year of division is only 1 pick.

6.       If a parent/coach/asst head coach generates 2 team sponsors and one is willing to move one sponsor to another team or move it to field or scoreboard deal, will be allowed to grand total of 2 sponsor picks.  Up to only 2 sponsor picks.  

7.       The team that is receiving the sponsor pick from above doesn’t have a sponsor pick generated then will be allowed only one sponsor, if the team gets another sponsor and willing to move team sponsor, field sign or scoreboard sign then they would be allowed a total of 2 sponsor picks.   This would continue till up to Draft Night.

8.       Sponsor picks cannot be to take other kids from other teams.  Parents must request to be redrafted only thru website registration to a new team, they must show up to draft and be graded by Board Members.   Parents must request all and do leg work to finalize by 3/10

9.       Unless the board needs to use the deal to draw volume.  Coaches then have, to have approval from sponsor.

10.   Trade sponsor get no Pick unless the trade sponsor is actual child.

11.   All Sponsor players must be placed prior to draft night and must Show up for Draft or will not be allowed to add player to you roster.   This is to be fair to fill ratings in top spots.

 

 

 

Coaches kids and Asst. coaches will be rated by Baseball Board members not that coaches.  Need to be fair on grading.

Draft procedure.

 

1.        All players from prior year that registered online prior for new season will be placed, no tryout is required.

2.       All players entering the draft and show up for draft must be drafted first.

3.       All kids that are entering draft that do not show up for the tryout will be put into a hat and pulled.

4.       If we have prior year grades we will input last year grade.

5.       No Hat pick will be pulled till all kids that showed up draft with a grade will be placed prior to going to the hat.   Can’t skip your live draft player for a hat pick.

6.       When evaluating players be fair and honest,  don’t rate A because you know he going to a team.

7.        Players that register late will be placed in order after the last team of the snake order or currently left off.

8.       All trade must be approved at Draft night by all Coaches in that division.
