WHEN WILL THE PRACTICE/GAME SCHEDULE BE POSTED?

 

We are still working hard to schedule all divisions. All schedules will be finalized and posted no later than April 8th. 

TEAM MANAGER or HEAD COACH?

 

They are the same thing! Baseball has a long history of calling "manager" the person responsible for overseeing and making final decisions on all aspects of on-field team strategy, lineup selection, training, and instruction. For our teams, they are also the primary point of contact between parents and the league.

ARE WE STILL USING TEAMSNAP?

No, our technology has moved from TeamSnap to DICK'S Team Sports HQ. This includes registration, website, and mobile applications.

WHAT MOBILE APP SHOULD I USE TO RECEIVE TEAM COMMUNICATIONS AND UPDATES?

We will be using the DICK'S Team Manager app. During the coaches clinic, we will be helping your coaches learn how to use the app and be the primary point of contact for any questions. The new app will be able to sync your team's schedule with the website and allow instant alerts and communication between coaches and parents.
