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!

If you have any questions about Softball, please contact Bryan Kelly at bryankelly@southcolonieball.org . For any Baseball questions, please contact Matt Conley at mattconley@southcolonieball.org .

We hope to see you for Fall Ball!
