2022 SEASON UPDATE

Spring Season is underway

 

Fall Registration will open in late June

We are changing the division alignment to expand divisions. This change allows greater focus on developmentally appropriate baseball and softball skills. The goal is for players to master the FUNdamentals of the game before progressing to higher level play.

  • Co-ed T-Ball (4 - 5 yo)
  • Co-ed Baseball: 
    • Coach-Pitch (6 - 7 yo)
    • Bantam (8 - 9 yo)
    • Midget (10 - 11 yo)
    • Minor (12 - 14 yo)
    • Major (15 - 17 yo) - Summer division starting AFTER Memorial Day
  • Girls Softball:
    • Bantam (Coach + Player Pitch) (6 - 9 yo)
    • Midget (9 - 11 yo)
    • Minor (11 - 14 yo)
    • Major (15 - 17 yo)

Some other notes for the season:

  • HAJBA has been an all-volunteer run organization for more than 60 years. We currently have nearly ⅓ of our board positions open and several board members ending their roles after this season. In order to continue to offer this program and keep the costs affordable, we need support and volunteers. Please consider stepping up to join the board.
  • Age as of May 1 for Baseball / Jan. 1 for Softball

Scholarships for Spring 2022 Season Available

As an all-volunteer organization, dedicated to giving kids an opportunity to learn and grow from baseball and softball, we never want a player to be denied the opportunity to play because of cost.

A scholarship application does not register the player. Players still need to be registered.
