All divisions start in May, as soon as the fields are released from the city. Coaches will be in touch with the start date, but please assume the first week in May, barring no weather issues. JR House League (JR/SR T-ball and coach pitch) wraps up the second Saturday in July with a Day of Champions. All other division end between the last week of July and early August, depending on the number of children that have registered and teams/division.
All players, no matter the division or gender, require their own helmet, glove and athletic supporter. The need for baseball shoes is a matter of personal opinion and not really needed at the lower levels. Metal cleats are only allowed at the Bantam level and higher for travel baseball. Houseleague uniforms are included in the registration costs and includes a cap and shirt. Grey baseball pants are recommended but not required.
Bats are provided at all levels of houseleague and purchasing your own is a matter of personal opinion.
In the Bantam/Midget Houseleague program, bats used must meet the following specifications:
