13U (PEEWEE) DIVISION FAQs
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 email@example.com
Q: WHAT IS PEEWEE?
A: Peewee is for 12 and 13 old boys and girls. They will continue to learn how to throw, catch, hit and base running. Sliding, stealing bases and other essential fundamentals of baseball are introduced in Peewee.
Q: WHERE IS PEEWEE PLAYED?
A: Peewee games are played on the Lloyd McConnie diamond at Martingrove Gardens. We will be interlocking with Rexdale and Weston and some games during the summer against Bloordale. We will advise where the diamonds are when the schedule is released.
Q: WHEN DO WE PLAY?
A: All games start at 6:30 pm, more information will be provided once we have full schedules 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 pm. It is important that you tell your coach if your child will not be attending a game or practice.
Q: WHERE ARE THE PRACTICES?
A: 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.
Q: HOW MANY INNINGS ARE PLAYED IN EACH GAME?
A: 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
Q: HOW MANY PLAYERS ARE ON EACH TEAM?
A: We aim for 12 players for each team.
Q: HOW MANY TEAMS ARE THERE?
A: We are hopeful for 3-4 teams this year.
Q: CAN MY CHILD CHOOSE A CERTAIN TEAM OR COACH
A: 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..
Q: WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING TO THE GAME?
A: Each player needs a glove and a helmet with a chin strap. Every player must wear an athletic cup, whether male or female. 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.
Due to COVID all players are required to bring their own hand sanitizer and a chair to sit on instead of using the players benches.
Q: WILL THERE BE UNIFORMS?
A: All players receive a baseball cap, jersey and pants (on a date to be determined). All players MUST wear the full uniform, including the pants for all games and practices. We are not insured if players are not in full uniform, including the pants, so the player would not be able to play or practice.
Q: ARE THERE CALL-UPS FROM PEEWEE TO BANTAM?
A: Normally yes there would be callups, but because of COVID we cannot have callups this year.
Q: WHERE CAN I REGISTER?
A: You can sign up on line on the website. You can also download a registration form (and the other documents required) from the website and mail it to the league at our post office box (which address is on the registration form).
Q: WHEN IS PICTURE DAY?
A: Picture days are June 13, 14 and 15 at St. Maurice Catholic School, the day and time for each team to be determined.
Q: CAN I HELP OUT AND BE A COACH?
A: 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 Jill DeLarzac (VP).
Q: CAN I VOLUNTEER?
A: Our league is run by volunteers, if you have time to assist at the games and practices please do so. If you have time to volunteer for some other jobs in the league please contact our Volunteer Co-Ordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
