What night will my child practice/play?

Practices: Dates and times are selected by JCYB coaches who work with the league and their own schedules for available field time.  Tee ball, Rookie, Minor, and Major divisions will generally practice twice a week before season begins and once a week in season.  Wee ball is restricted to one practice per week generally on a week day.

Games:  Game play is generally one weekday and all Saturdays.  Inclement weather often happens and as such the board will re-schedule games to whatever make up dates and times are available.  We try to avoid Sundays but it is sometimes unavoidable.  

How much does it cost?
Wee ball registration is $50, all other divisions are $100.  On top of this we require $50 additionally for fundraising.  Wee ball total is $100, and all other divisions are $150
