Below are most of the things you need to know about our Peewee Division but of course should you have any additional questions please contact our VP, Junior Baseball, Daniel Kulcyzski, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Peewee is for 13- and 14-year-old boys and girls. Moving up from the Mosquito level they will continue to learn how to throw, hit, base running, sliding, stealing bases and other essential fundamentals of baseball.
All games start at 6:30, playoff games start at 6:15. We play on Mondays, Tuesdays or Thursdays primarily. All players should arrive at least 15 minutes prior to game time to warm up. Games will be forfeited if not enough players arrive by 6:45. It is important that you tell your coach if your player will not be attending a game or practice (especially a game because they can call-up from mosquito).
The location for the practices will be on the Lloyd McConnie diamond. We also have some other diamonds available which the coach will be made aware of. Practices depend on availability of diamonds and when the team and coaches are available, primarily at this level practices are on Saturdays and Sundays. Practices are once a week for one hour.
We play 7 full innings in a game unless stopped by curfew, loss of light or weather conditions. No new innings will start after 1 hour and 45 minutes. However, once a team scores 5 runs during an inning, the “at bat” is concluded for that team
All players receive a baseball cap, jersey and pants (on a date to be determined in May at Martingrove Gardens). All players MUST wear the full uniform, including the pants for all games and practices. We are not insured and your child CANNOT PLAY if they are not in full uniform (especially the pants), for games and practices.
We will try our best to place a child on a specific team or with a specific coach. However player’s choice of team cannot be guaranteed. We try to balance the teams with skill levels. The goal is to have the players learn the game of baseball and have fun..
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. We suggest that you bring water to keep your player hydrated during the game. Running shoes will be okay or soccer cleats.
Yes, if a player feels they are ready to play up for midget they should speak to their coach and he can contact Daniel Kulczyski (the VP for the level) and his/her name will be placed on a call-up list. When a bantam team is in need of a player your player could be called up for the game. Bantam plays on Friday nights at Centennial Park (Optimist Diamond and on Thursday nights at Ourland so if you have a Thursday night game you must play your bantam game.
Picture Day is on June 15, 16 and 17 starting at 6:00 at St. Maurice Catholic School, 45 Kingsview Blvd. (Off Kipling north of Dixon Road). More details, including the day and time for your team, will follow.
You can sign up on line or in person at the scheduled in-person registration dates as listed on the website. You can also download a registration form from the website and mail it to the league at our post office box (which address is on the registration form).
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 Mark Doran.
