3rd Grade Baseball is an instructional league for kids in 3rd grade for the 2019/2020 school year, building upon the basics of player pitch baseball, as well as continuing the progression of building fundamental baseball skills. This season focuses on instructing and developing pitching. Coach pitch is removed and players will pitch all games. The players are also introduced to game situation and philosophies, and to the reduction to 9 fielders.
Practices and games are held twice per week, Monday through Thursday, and may vary from week to week. Please note that requests for specific nights and fields are not available in our House Program for 2020. We will make every attempt to make the nights consistent, but there will be games and practices on a variety of evenings so to better provide a variety of competition.
**There are no evaluations for this level. Teams will be selected by the level coordinator. There will be no special requests for player placement on teams or with certain coaches. The only requests honored will be siblings being placed on the same teams. Coaches may still request to coach together, with a maximum of 3 per team. Coaching requests are not guaranteed, and may not be honored if all teams are not covered with coaches.
The level coordinators for 3rd grade is Kristin Chlan
Registrations will be accepted January 13 - April 30, 2020. Players registering after April 30th will be “wait listed” with no guarantee of making a team, if the teams are already full AND will be charged a late fee of $25.
**This level is for kids ending the 2019/20 school year in 3rd grade. The player must be in 3rd grade at the time of registration. Players who are not in 3rd grade will be reassigned to the proper grade level.
