What is Summer 2020 T-Ball all about?

  • Based on AHS Guidelines Fish Creek will be able to off a T-Ball House League program where we can play games. We will have to follow the recommended guidelines and our T-Ball Division will be split into Cohorts.

 

Details on Cohorts:

  • The 50-person cohort rules applies to players AND coaches within the group.
  • Players and coaches must remain part of the same cohort for the entire season and may not be part of multiple cohorts.  This means that if a coach wants to coach multiple teams (as many due) they may only pick one to be their cohort where they can break the physical distancing rule (without a mask).
  • If a Division has more than 50 players and coaches, they will need to be divided in groups of no more than 50 and only play against teams/players from their own group.
  • Physical distancing within a cohort will not need to be maintained during game play (essentially, they will be able to play games as they normally would).
  • Physical distancing will need to be maintained when note playing (i.e. in dugouts/on benches).
  • Separation from spectators and good hygiene practices will be in effect.  No food permitted at the diamonds, this includes sunflower seeds.

 

Details on League Play and Team Formation?

  • T-Ball is considered a developmental division.  All Cohorts will follow FCLL's Modified rules currently outlined in our Spring House League Program (for more details please CLICK HERE).
  • Because of the Cohort rules, FCLL will be capping its T-Ball Registrations.
  • We would have teams of 9 players and 2-3 coaches each.
  • Teams will play games on alternate weeknights, Monday through Thursday.
  • Each Cohort would have their own designated field.
  • Teams and Cohorts will be formed randomly with allowances given for Friend Requests.
  • **Team sizes and number of teams in each cohort are subject to change based on registration numbers, City, Provincial and AHS Guidelines.**
  • We are very fortunate to be offering this Summer Baseball Program.  We sincerely appreciate your understanding and support with the program we will have.

 

What is the cost of T-Ball?

  • The cost is $140.

 

How often do they play?

  • T-Ball will see 2 games scheduled per week (weeknight only).  Games that are interrupted or postponed due to weather may be rescheduled to an available weeknight or weekend.

 

What times do they play?

  • T-Ball games generally start at 6:00 pm and will have no new innings starts after 7:30 pm.

What equipment is included in the registration fees?  What equipment do the parents/guardians need to provide?
