The list of age group commissioners can be found under the baseball webpage.  Head Coaches will receive their Concession Work Deposit refund and will not have to work a shift in the concession stand.

Practices:
During pre-season; teams will be assigned one weeknight slot and one weekend slot.  Once games begin; teams will practice once a week.  We cannot arrange for specific practice days.  Coaches will select times slots when they receive the team roster. Once season games begin there will be no assigned practices for the T-Ball age group.

Concession Duty: 
We are a volunteer-based organization and rely on parents to help run Concessions. A Concession Work Deposit (CWD) fee of $25.00 will be added to your league fee.
