2022 Coaching Registration Open

To apply to be considered as a Head or Assistant coach, complete this application. All HAJBA Coaches must pass a background check and complete Concussion training as well as SafeSports Act Mandatory reporter training. Coaching opportunities are limited based on player registration.

You will be contacted by the division commissioner with your next steps. If you have any questions concerning coaching, please contact any board member. Contact information is available on the About Us page.


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.

If you would like to request a scholarship for the 2022 Spring season, or to nominate someone for a scholarship, please complete a scholarship application here.

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

2022 SEASON UPDATE

SPRING REGISTRATION OPEN! Click this link!

Please review the information below before registering.

HAJBA Families!

We are excited and looking forward to the 2022 season! Before we get the season underway, we want to ensure you understand some changes being made to the league which impact players at nearly every division.

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 TBall (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)

Additional items impacted by these changes:

  • The goal will be for TBall teams to be limited to 6-8 players per team.
  • The Coach-Pitch division will have 4 inning games, with a 1 Hour and 30 minute time limit. They will mostly follow Bantam Baseball rules.
  • The Coach-Pitch division will not have a postseason tournament, but will have an All-star game.
  • The Bantam Baseball division will NO LONGER have any coach pitch. Players will be pitching each inning, limited to one inning each. The goal is for coaches to work to get nearly every player opportunity to pitch during the season.
  • These changes will mean some players will have one additional season in a division that families have anticipated moving on from. However, we are asking that all families support this change and keep players in their age appropriate division.
  • Players in TBall and Coach-Pitch will not be allowed to move-up outside of their age bracket, except as call-up players.
  • These changes will impact returning teams to several divisions. We are considering all teams to be NEW in each division for 2022.

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.
  • Early registrations allows families to register at the 2021 rates. The 2022 rates go into effect on February 7, 2022. Guarantee play registration ENDS on March 6. All registrations beginning March 7 will be limited to availability and will include a late fee.
