Registration for our Fall season is now OPEN!
From a competitive standpoint, Fall Ball is in between our recreation games and travel league games. Some stricter rules are enforced, but the emphasis on competition does not reach that of travel games and more closely resembles our recreation games. Our Fall Softball teams will again play within divisions of the Hudson Mohawk (HM) District 7 Girls Softball Traveling League at all levels. Our Fall Baseball teams will once again play within divisions of the Eastern States Baseball League (ESBL). We will also be offering in-house development programs in both softball and baseball – see below.
For 8U (In-House), we will be running our own in-house program primarily focusing on instruction and skills development through both individual and team based drills and scrimmages. Emphasis will be on throwing, fielding and hitting. In the past, the program was one weeknight a week plus a set time on Saturday. Exact details for this year’s program are still being worked out. We will let you know when they are finalized. All 8U players will also have the opportunity to play on our 8U HM team, as listed below.
For 8U (HM), 10U, 12U, 14U, and 17U, play consists of doubleheaders on four consecutive Sundays beginning on September 9th, and ending on September 30th (8 games total). In addition, each team will practice one to two times per week on top of the games. Travel will be within the local area, i.e., Latham, Burnt Hills, Shen, Rotterdam, etc. We may be scheduled for home games, if our league is asked to host on one of the Sundays, but we will not know until schedules are released by HM.
For 8U, 9U, 10U and 11U, all players will participate in an in-house skills clinic, held each Tuesday and Thursday 5:45 – 7:30pm. All players will have the opportunity to tryout for our travel fall ball teams at 8U, 9U, 10U and 11U. Play for the travel teams will be on Saturdays and/or Sundays, beginning on or around September 8th or 9th, and ending around October 6th or 7th (8 – 10 games total). Some days will consist of doubleheaders. We will have some home games, as well as away games within the local area at locations such as Niskayuna, Guilderland, North Colonie, etc. We will know exact game dates when schedules are released by ESBL.
