It’s time to get your son registered for the Fall Baseball season if he’s interested in participating.
If you are for sure wanting to participate on a Fall Bombers team –
If you are a new player and want to check out the program, join us for our Open Practice / Tryout on July 22nd at Ozzie Smith Sports Complex (Times – TBD).
We will likely have teams at the following age levels (Players will move up one age level in the Fall). If a player was 9u eligible for the current Spring / Summer season, they will graduate to 10u for the upcoming Fall season.
The Fall seasons operate a little differently than the Spring/Summer season. The OCAC will normally schedule 2 games per week and play over a 6 week schedule beginning in September. Teams playing in Chesterfield will play a smaller schedule (usually 7 to 8 games) with the season completed by early October.
It will be our intent to host practices on Sunday afternoons, providing a skills training opportunity for our teams. Depending on the number of players / teams participating we will combine age levels for these skills sessions or, if needed, have scheduled times for the respective age groups to keep the size of the group manageable.
Here is a brief description of the Chesterfield Fall League:
CBSA has a fall league that runs from Aug. 13-Oct. 7. The fall league is meant to be non-competitive play and intended to extend the regular season and get teams accustomed to new age level rules and try out players. CBSA will create Select and American divisions for 8U and older as long as there are enough teams. This is open to:
6u/7u Baseball and Softball (7 games) – $600/team
8U-14U Boys American and Select (7 games) – $775/team
Teams play at 2019 Age Levels (if currently an 8U baseball team then you would play 9U fall ball).
Not everyone who plays Spring / Summer will return in the Fall. If we had 3 teams at a particular age level for Spring / Summer play, we will likely have 2 teams for that particular level for Fall ball. Rosters will be reshuffled again as we enter the following Spring / Summer as we incorporate our returning players.
We’ll also be incorporating new players into the program in Fall Ball. New players should plan to attend our July 22nd Open Practice and can register HERE.
Program Philosophy – We’re fortunate to have a great group of coaches and welcome the opportunity to develop players. We don’t rely on just selecting the oldest and most skilled players at every age level to build competitive teams. Players who enjoy success as part of the Bombers program are committed to building lasting relationships with teammates and coaches and embrace the “process” of skill development.
