Player Draft Selection
Field Maintenance Tips
This website contains a bunch of different drills for all age groups as well as coaching tips. It is a great website with a wealth of information that will teach the kids while also allowing them to have some fun which is what it's all about.
We believe that a draft selection where players are drafted as “free agents” and remain on a team together promotes strong player development, increases teamwork, enhances camaraderie among team members and allows teams to build upon skills that they have learned, progressively. These efforts are designed in a way that allows us to teach our kids while they grow as players.
All coaches are expected to be present for the player scoring and subsequent draft. Coach Pitch may have 2 assistant coaches and Minor and Majors will be allowed 1 Assistant Coach of record, but are encouraged to enlist the help of any parents willing to assist.
If the Head and or Assistant Coach has a player, that player will be guaranteed a spot on that coaches team. If the coaches of record have more than 2 players (children) combined, the draft pick will bump back 1 round for each player over 2 until all teams have an equal number of players.
Once a coach drafts a player, that player will remain on that coaches team unless the player chooses not to be on that coaches team again and decides to re-enter the draft. Once a player re-enters the draft, they can not be drafted by the previous coach.
If a family has 2 children playing in the same league, those kids will be guaranteed to be on the same team unless requested otherwise by the parents. If 1 child is drafted then the other child will automatically be selected as the next round pick.
Please visit individual league pages for more information about each league. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us via our contact form on the contact us page.
