10U Raiders with a come from behind W over Burnt Hills tonight! Great job ladies! ... See MoreSee Less

Everyone,

As the Spring season is now behind us, we know everyone has visions of summer cook-outs, camp-outs, and pool parties. However, we here at South Colonie Youth Baseball / Girls Softball are busy planning our 2017 Fall Ball season, and want to let everyone know that registration for the Fall season is now OPEN!

From a competitive standpoint, Fall Ball is in between our recreation games and Spring/Summer 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, and our Fall Baseball teams will once again play within divisions of the Eastern States Baseball League (ESBL).

SOFTBALL

For 10U, 12U, 14U, and 17U, play consists of doubleheaders on four consecutive Sundays beginning on September 10th, and ending on October 1st (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. NOTE: Registration age for Fall Ball is based on the level that the player will play in Spring 2018, i.e., a player who played 10u and turns eleven in 2018, will play 12u fall ball this year.

For 8U (Mini Minors), we will again 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.

BASEBALL

For 8U, 9U, and 10U, play will be on Saturdays and/or Sundays beginning around September 9th or 10th, and ending around October 7th or 8th (8 - 12 games total). Some days will consist of doubleheaders. In addition, each team will practice one to two times per week on top of the games. 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.

REGISTRATION

The Fall Ball registration fee this year for each player (except 8U Softball) is $80 and goes towards players' jerseys, umpire fees, HM/ESBL league fees, and insurance. The cost for our 8U Softball in-house program is $40, and all players receive a shirt. To register, go to our website at www.southcolonieball.org/registration and click on the 'Register' button!

We hope to see you for Fall Ball!

The Rookie Division is for players 6-7 years old (as determined on May 1st, 2017). In this division, the players are pitched to either by a coach or pitching machine. The fielding positions are more defined than in T-ball. Players will learn more of the fundamentals without being concerned about the majority of the rules.

Minors

The Minors is for players that are 7, 8 and 9 years old (as determined on May 1, 2017). In this division, the kids will experience a combination of coach pitch and kid pitch and a hard baseball is used. While keeping it fun for the kids as they learn is always our goal, the competitive part of the game of baseball is introduced as team records are kept and there are playoffs and a championship game at the end of the season.

Intermediates

The Intermediates division is for players ages 9, 10 and 11 (as determined on May 1, 2017). The games are played using a certified umpire behind the plate and a youth umpire in the field. The kids do all of the pitching in these game. The teams go through a round of playoffs and a championship game at the end of the season.
