What to Expect:

·         At the 11-12 level the players have developed timing and physical ability for gameplay.  Pitching is faster and batting requires heightened focus and timing.  

·         With all sports physical development is a factor in determining ability.  It is the coach’s job to ensure your child's safety and in doing so determining the best positions for the children to play.  Infield play is fast and requires a defensive glove to ensure safety of the player.  The coach will evaluate every player and determine their ability to defend themselves at all positions.    

·         Kids should be on the field 15-30 mins prior to game start time

·          Each team must have a scorekeeper, umpire and a scoreboard operator

    • Parents are asked to volunteer to help for these positions
