2017 Spring Teeball & Baseball Registrations

 

All registrations for Spring Tee-ball and Baseball are done online. 

Travel baseball teams were selected this past fall.  You should register for travel only if you have already tried out and have been offered a spot on a team.  

Registration fees this year are $95 for tee-ball, $125 for intramural and $240 (8U, 9U & 10U) or $290 (11U, 12U & 13U) for travel.  

IMPORTANT - REFUNDS:  Those signing up and requesting a refund during the regular registration period may withdrawl and get a full refund.  Those requesting refunds during the late registration period will be given a refund less a $25 administration fee.  NO REFUNDS WILL BE ISSUED BEGINNING A WEEK PRIOR TO TEAMS BEING SELECTED.  Refund requests must be made by email to info@udjaa.com.  All requests will be promptly acknowledged.  If you don't get an acknowledgment please assume your request has not been received.   

Tee-ball is for girls and boys currently in kindergarten or a school-year away (Sept 2017) from entering kindergarten.  It pretty much is baseball while hitting oiff a tee.  As we approach the end of the season,coaches may begin to pitch (more like toss form a close distance) a ball to the girls/boys.

AAA is our league for 1st and 2nd graders ..... it starts as machine pitch, but most coaches prefer to switch to a coach pitch from the mound as the season progresses and the players get more comfortable with the game.  You can request player and or coaching pairings ..... we will do the best we can to accomodate those requests (although we can't ganrantee  it will happen).

Rookie League is for the 3rd & 4th graders .... it pretty much is competitive baseball with some rule age-based adjustments.  We no longer be able to accomodate requests for player or coach pairings (coaches are paired with their sons ...max 3 coaches pre-assigned pairings per team).  Teams are selected by a player draft (scheduled for March 20th)

For those interested in playing Travel Baseball in Upper Dublin here is some information that will help you signup for tryouts so you can be included in our improved Travel Baseball Program. Tryouts will be held from September 16 through October 16, 2016.

 2016 Highlights:

UD Travel Baseball joined the Babe Ruth/ Suburban and Connie Mack leagues in order to give our young players exposure to more competition. Our first season in the new leagues was very successful resulting in three championships and a second place finish – all teams finished first in sportsmanship, development and love for the game.

 

9U Made it to the semi-finals in the playoffs

10U Both teams placed first in their respective leagues

11U Placed 2nd in their league

12U Placed first in their league

13U First season for Legion Prep

15U Junior Legion enjoyed it's second season in Upper Dublin

16U Made is to the second round of the playoffs in Connie Mack A league

For 2017 we will continue in the Suburban and Connie Mack leagues. With the renewed interest in our program we will be considering adding an 8U team and a second team at the 9U through 12U level.

Please note that under our new league structure, all players 8U-12U are required to play in our in-house recreational league (this a Suburban Travel team requirement).

Our season for 8U-12U will run from approximately April 1 through June 30. District playoffs and tournaments may be played after this date. Playing Travel Baseball is a commitment, trying out for a team indicates your willingness to commit to the team and be present for games and practices.

Baseball Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What's the time commitment?
For intramurals, the season runs from the first week of April until about the second week of June. You will have practice or a game one night a week, and on Saturday (Grades 7 & 8 - we avoid Saturday's as much as possible, but there could be some Saturday games). Practices are typically 1.5 to 2 hours, and games are about 2 hours - but remember - baseball is timeless!

Q: My child is not enrolled in pre-kindergarten. Can they play?
Yes they can, if they are 5 by September 1, 2017. Other than 5 year olds (Pre-K or not) until the travel teams begin at age 8, we group our teams strictly by grade in school.

Q: Can I request a specific coach or for my son to be on the same team as a friend?
For Pre-Kindergarten through 2nd grade (T-Ball and AAA Leagues) we will accept requests, and do our best to honor them, although sometimes that is not possible. Starting in 3rd Grade (Rookie League) our teams are selected by draft, so we cannot honor requests. We use an "Open Draft" in these leagues to keep the teams as evenly balanced as possible.

Q: Is UDJAA Baseball the same as Little League?
We are not affiliated with Little League or any other national youth baseball program. However, in establishing the rules for each of our leagues, we have combined the "best of the best" to provide an environment where the boys can learn the game, and learn to love the game.

Q: I have more questions!
