Each player needs a glove and a helmet with a chin strap. If he/she wishes to bring a bat that is okay although we provide bats for each team, but any bats must be wood or composite.  We suggest that you bring water or juice to keep your player hydrated during the game.  Running shoes will be okay or soccer cleats.

Yes, we always need coaches and assistant coaches. We ask that all parents help out with the coaching in the games and practices, it is more fun if everyone gets involved.  We see the “coach” as the main contact person but everyone else “pitches in.”  If you want to be a head coach or assistant coach please mark it on your registration form or contact Kimberley Baird at kimberley.m.baird@gmail.com
