SUSSEX WANTAGE

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What division should I register my child for?

In general, the divisions will break down by age as follows:

Tee ball - 6 and under - also first time players
AAA/Coach Pitch - 7 and 8
Minors/Player pitch -  9 and 10
Majors - 11 and 12
Juniors -13 and up

If your child has never played before and is 7 or 8, they may need a year of tee ball prior to playing AAA. If your child has never played before and they are 9, they may do well with a year of AAA/coach pitch, instead of moving directly into minors/player pitch.

NOTE: Normally children can be evaluated in the Spring clinics (March). Unfortunately, with COVID this year, we will likely not be able to have the clinics indoors.

I have never coached before but I am interested...can I still coach?
Anyone can coach!!! We need all the help we can get.

The most important thing is that you are involved with your children. You don't have to know a lot about baseball, just need to be willing to get out there and help. That is step 1.

We will have a coaching clinic prior to the season starting. In that meeting, we can go over drills, practice plans, etc. Any questions you have regarding coaching can be sent to [email protected]

What can I do to help out/volunteer?
Volunteers can do a number of things to help out the league.

Coaching - see above
League administration - join the League Board and help out with running of the league
Field maintenance - anything from raking the fields after the game, lining the field before the game, helping with field maintenance prior to the season, etc.
Concession stand worker - during the season, selling snacks at the concession stand at Brookside
Opening day parade coordination - helping out during our parade
Wantage Day/Sussex Day help - sit at our table during community events

Volunteering can be anything you can think of. If you have another idea in mind, please let us know.

I know someone who wants to be a sponsor. Who should they contact?
We are always in need of sponsors. Sponsorship fluctuates year to year. Some people come into the league while others leave as their children age out. If you know someone who would like to sponsor a team in the league, please email [email protected]

What do I get for bringing in a sponsor?
If you are able to bring in $500 of sponsorship for the season, you will get a $45 credit for registration. This credit is good one time per family, per season.

If you know of sponsors and can get them to sign up, please email [email protected] We will review the sponsors and work on getting you the $45 credited to your account.
