Team placement

We try to honor teammate requests.  Please enter three names at the time of your child's registration.  The NAA drafts the teams pairing up friend requests and schoolmates.

 

What do you do in practice?  

Coaches introduce and teach players the main baseball fundamentals: proper throwing mechanics, proper stance and hitting fundamentals, basic fielding skills, above-the-waist catching, and base running. 

 

We emphasize having fun together as a team, learning positive sportsmanship, and developing players’ confidence in their athletic abilities.

 

How do games work?  

Rookie games are a combination of adults/HS students pitching and kid pitch.

Every player is in the batting order.  Innings change after three outs or five runs scored

Fielders throw hit balls to the appropriate base, and legitimate fielding outs retire a runner/batter.

Games are four-to-five innings, which takes about 1.5 hours.

 

The rules are listed under "Coaches Information" on the NAA home page.

 

What do players need?  

A baseball glove, water bottle, cleats are optional.  The team shirt and hat are distributed at first practice.  Players are welcome to bring their own baseball bat, batting gloves and helmet.

 

What about drop-offs?   

At this age group, each player must have a parent/adult present for the duration of the practice and game.

 

Volunteer Coaches

Your child's registration fee will be discounted if you coach.

If you would like to volunteer to coach a team, please enter the information requested in your child's registration.  We will contact you via email to let you know if you will be coaching a team on March 1st.  For each division, we are looking for 2 to 3 co-coaches for each team.  

We require all coaches to attend a mandatory coaches meeting.  We require the 3 background checks which are listed under "Coaches Information" on the left side of home page.
