 Register online through March 30

 

 

In person and on-line registrations received through March 30, 2016 will be guaranteed a position on a roster.  After March 30, 2016, online registration will remain open; however, all registrants after March 30 will be subject to the registration freeze described below.

 

Registration Freeze:

If you do not register by March 30, 2016, there will be a registration freeze.  This is something we must do in order to be able to ensure that all of our registered players are placed on a team and that we have secured enough coaches.  Inquiries for registration beyond March 30th will be placed on a waiting list in the order in which they were received.  A description of the late registration process will be on the website as the time nears.  Sending multiple emails regarding the same player will only delay the process.  Although you may not hear from us right away, please know that we make every effort to have every child placed.

 

2017 Season

The season begins on Saturday April 15, 2016 with our Opening Day Parade.  Since we register through mid-March and then hold a meeting for our managers at the beginning of April, you should be contacted by your manager by April 4th.  If you do not hear from your manager by April 4, please send an email to baseball@syag.com with "No Call" in the subject line.  

 

Practices

Prior to Opening Day, your team will have two practices.  Uniforms will be distributed by the manager at one of those practices.  During the season, practice is at the discretion of the coach.

 

Parade

Players march into the season at our opening day parade on Saturday April 15.  Players assemble with their team at Samoset Middle School beginning at 11:30am.  Marching commences at 12:00, traveling east on School St, making a right onto northbound Gatelot Ave, then a right onto Smith Rd, and finally into Smith Road Park for the ceremonies.  Families are encourage to park at Samoset Middle School. Following the parade, you can exit out of the rear of Smith Road Park Field #4 for a short walk back to Samoset. 

 

Opening Day

Most teams play on opening day - Saturday, April 15.  Your coach will have the schedule at the first practice.
