Winterball, 2016 - Waitlist Registration Still Open

 

Winterball, 2016 Waitlist Registration Still Open

General registration has closed.  The Minor, Major and Junior division teams were selected on Monday, August 15th.  Waitlist registration will remain open through 9/15, however at this point we cannot guarantee team placement.  Waitlist registrants will be placed to team as space opens up, in the order that they they registered.

Winterball (sometimes termed ‘Fall Ball’) is a great opportunity to build on the accomplishments of the spring season.  The main focus is player development, allowing players some additional practice and game experience to hone their skills going into next season.

The number of teams and games depends on the number of players that register, and the number of managers and coaches that volunteer.  Last year we had 5 Minor, 5 Major, and 2 Junior Division teams; we are anticipating a similar turnout this fall.  Practices will start on August 17th, with the first game tentatively planned for Sunday, August 28th.  Games are typically one during the week and one on Sundays, running through October. 

There will also be several games against teams from other leagues, with some will be at our home Folsom American fields, and some at the other league’s fields, which adds a nice element to the experience.

IMPORTANT:  League Ages for Winterball is what the player will be for the next Spring season.  That means if your player was 10 for the 2016 season, they will be considered league age 11 for Winterball.

Players that will be league age 7 through 14 (for the 2017 Spring season) are invited to register.

We are planning for four divisions of play – Juniors, Majors, Minors and (new this year) our ‘Up and Comers’ division, which will cater to the more junior players.

Also new this year for FALL, we will be doing player evaluations on August 10th and 12th, tentatively planned for 6pm each day.  Player evaluations will allow us to better align players of like ability, thereby promoting the best developmental experience possible.  Players league age 8 through 12 are required to attend one of the two player evaluation sessions to be eligible to be placed on a team.  7 year olds will be placed on an ‘Up and Comer’s’ division team, and players 13 and 14 will be placed to a Junior division team.  

To sign up, visit the registration page.  Like previous years, in addition to players we need Managers, Coaches, Volunteers and Umpires.  The corresponding registration forms for those positions are included on our registration page.
