Tryouts for Heat Players Age 13-16 will be held in Fall / Winter 2016 for 2017 Season:

The fee for the 2017 season will be $350 per player and is payable upon acceptance to a team.

Please make checks payable to Hatboro-Horsham Heat.

If you are interested in playing please make sure you are committed to make all practices and games as there are only so many spots on each team. Only School Baseball should take priority although usually School Baseball is complete by the time HH Heat Baseball starts. 

The season will run from late May (after school ball is over) through July and possibly in to August depending on playoffs etc... 

There is no guaranteed playing times as this is competitive real baseball and will be managed as such with standard baseball substitution patterns.

 

Anyone interested in Managing or Coaching a team should submit their qualifications as soon as possible for consideration and will be required to complete a commitment and code of conduct document if selected. Deadline for Manager and Coach submission for 2018 Season is 9/15/2017.  Please include any previous experience as well as references from those experiences. Information and input will be considered from any previous management or coaching roles and organizations. Interviews will be conducted as required. Background checks will be required.
We can only have teams if there is enough volunteer support for Manager and Coaching roles.

Code Of Conduct

AS A PLAYER, I promise to always play with good sportsmanship and respect for my teammates and opponents. I will be courteous to all coaches, officials and other parent volunteers who are trying to help me become a better player. I will do my best in all practices and games have patience with myself and remember that I am playing these games for fun. I will attend every practice and game I can, knowing that my team will depend on me to be there. Finally, I will play hard at every position that my coaches assign to me.

 

AS A PARENT, I, promise to encourage good sportsmanship by showing support for all players, coaches and officials at every game. I will focus upon my child’s efforts and performance rather than the overall outcome of the game. I will never ridicule or yell at any child, including my own, for making a mistake or losing a game. I will never use profanity or physically or verbally abuse any players, coaches, officials or spectators. I will participate in positive cheers that encourage all players and discourage any cheers that redirect that focus, including those that taunt and intimidate officials or opposing players and fans. I will help my child enjoy the experience of playing on a team by doing whatever I can, including being a respectful fan and providing whatever help is needed by the team or league according to my skills and availability. I will endeavor to learn, understand and respect the rules of the game, the officials who administer them and their decisions. I will remember that the coaches and league officers are all volunteers. I will not be critical unless I’m ready and willing to make the necessary effort to correct the object of my criticism; and I will bring any perceived problems to the attention of my child’s coach IN PRIVATE. I will bring my child to practices and games on time and, if I do not stay, will make sure that my child is picked up promptly afterward. I will also give advance notice to my child’s coach whenever my child will be absent from a practice or game. Finally, I will demand a sports environment for my child that is free from drugs and alcohol and will refrain from their use at all team-sponsored events.

 

AS A COACH, I will honor all of the above promises that generally apply to parents; and I will never forget the trust that parents place in me while coaching their children. I will do my best to develop the talents of every player on my team, to treat them with respect and fairness and to help the entire team learn the principles of sportsmanship.
