FAQ

 

What equipment does my child need?

For all ages, your child will need a baseball glove, baseball pants and cleats. Older boys also need an athletic cup.  Helmets, bats & catcher’s gear is provided for each team. Each player will receive a shirt, hat, and socks.

If you have extra, gently-used baseball equipment or if you are in need of equipment, please contact Baseball director for donation.

How do I sign my child up for travel baseball?

See www.senecawareagles.org

What is the minimum age I can sign my child up for baseball or softball?

4 years old and entering Kindergarten at the start of the next school year.

When can I sign up for Baseball/Softball?

Registration opens mid-January. It will also be included in the IM Schools Thursday Packet

I am not from Shamong.  Can I still sign up for your program?

If your township has a recreational program for baseball for your child’s age group, then you can NOT sign up for IMAA Rec Baseball.  The program’s Director & IMAA board will make the final decision based about out of town players.  Please send an email to admin to be considered.

When are practices and games?

A practice/game schedule will be created after team selection.  Practices and games usually start around 5-5:30pm Monday-Friday and on Saturday mornings.  Most likely there will be 2-3 games/practices a week (weather permitting).

I want my child to play in a different age group than is listed.  How can I do that?

Generally, we like to keep children in their own age group, but in extenuating circumstances, you can consult with the director of the program.

Which program should I sign my child up for?

Baseball divisions are separated by grade. Baseball divisions also have an age requirement, with the cut-off birth date (May 1st). It is highly recommended that baseball players play within their grade. In some instances, a player may be too old to play with his grade, so he may need to play with the grade above him/her. Similarly, if a player's skills are not appropriate for his/her grade, he/she may play down a grade. Grade level changes should be approved in these cases by the director.
