FAQ’s

When does the season begin:  Practices start in February and games run from March through mid-May

Where are games and practices:  Practices can be at any of our three fields (it is up to the coach).  We use Boulder Creek Elementary, the District Office Field (formerly Quail Hollow) and San Lorenzo Valley Middle School field.  We try to keep games on their assigned fields which would be 6 and 8U – Boulder Creek Elementary; 10U – The District Office Field; and Upper Division – San Lorenzo Valley Middle School

What does my player need to begin

They will need a pair of cleats and a glove.  The glove size varies depending on what division your player is in as follows:

6U & 8U – Squishy size 10 ball

10U – 11″ hard ball

Upper Division – Hard size 12″ ball

When you purchase gloves you will see that they are sized by the size of ball the player will be using.

 

They should also have some form of black pants (baseball style pants are recommended but not required).  If they choose to wear shorts it is a league rule that they must wear sliders with the shorts.

 

They do not have to have a helmet or bat as the league provides a certain number for each team.  However, we do recommend the 10U girls have a fielders mask.

 

What does the league provide:  Each player will receive a team jersey, sweatshirt, ASA Insurance and team photo.  Some teams decide to collect money for socks and visors, these are not provided by the league.

 

How often are games?  Once games begin there will be no more than two games per week.  One on a weekday and one on the weekend (6U and 8U sometimes only do one game per week).

 

When will we practice:  That varies with each coach.  At the beginning of the season they sign up for practice slots.  Your coach will let you know the first week of February when and where you will be practicing.

Can I request a certain coach/team?:   The only age group that can make requests is the 6U and 8U Divisions.  The 10U and Upper Division are formed via draft to keep the teams equal.
