PRACTICES - - are based on our Volunteer Coaches personal availability, they normally are 2 weekdays per week, approx 2 hours long on either Mon, Thu or Fri . Practices start between 6:00pm and 7:00pm, and end by 9pm.
GAMES -- are played on our fields every Saturday (apprx 12 games), with the exception of one weekend where each team will play a tournament offsite (location TBD). There is a chance there will be some Wednesday night games - this will be determined based on the amount of players who register. If there are Wednesday games, they will start at 6:30 and end by 8:30 depending on age group.
TRYOUTS -- We need all players to participate in tryouts - our Uniform provider will be at the fields sizing all players for team jerseys and PANTS - yes, we have added pants to our player uniforms at NO ADDITIONAL COST!! - If your player cannot make it to tryouts, we will order pants to match the jersey size selected on your registration form.
NEW!! Concession Stand Comittment -- Parents will be required to complete two - 2 hour shifts at our concession stand. This is common practice among youth baseball leagues - the money raised at our concession stand will help pay for OFFICAL UMPIRES. Many other youth league games are officiated by parents, family members, teens, etc...Bear Creek is one the of the FEW leagues who provide our players with professional umpires and we want to keep it that way!! We have chosen to implement a Buy-out Program in which parents can choose to buy out or, essentially not work their concession shifts. The buy-out amount will be $50. If a parent does not full fill their volunteer hours, their Childs team will receive a forfeit.
REFUNDS -- Full Refunds will be processed only if season does not start and will not include processing fee (approx. $6 per player). If you cancel after January 4th, uniform fee will be deducted. As stated in our Parental Consent and Agreement form - if the season starts and one game is played, there will be absolutely no refunds. Please note, this is a common policy across many youth leagues. (copies of registration contract available at concession stand and available on online Registration Form)
