DIVISIONS / PLAYER SELECTION
Age divisions are 9-10 year olds, 11-12 year olds and 13-14 year olds. The age is determined by the player’s age as on January 1st of the season year. This age is set by the league sanctioning organization. Players within each division will be evaluated in areas of throwing, catching, hitting, running, and various agility measures in order to group them comparably for team assignments. Team assignments will be completed by mid-March. Players will be contacted by coaches selected by the HJRSB Board of Directors.
Volunteer coaches will be selected per review of candidates by the HJRSB Board of Directors. Anyone interested in coaching should note such on the Player Registration form and by submitting a Coaching Application. Coaching applications are available on our website at www.hjrsoftball.com. Additionally, coaches are expected to sign a “Coaches Creed” that outlines expectations of the organization. Perspective coaches shall attend HJRSB coaching fundamentals and team development training.
Tentatively, outdoor practices will begin in mid April. Players and coaches should expect to practice twice a week prior to the end of May start of the Mason league season. Once the season begins, teams may practice once a week, depending on field availability.
