2024 Baseball Registration has been cancelled due to lack of participants.
 
Spring BASEBALL

We have teams for players whose playing age is 5-13 years of age and we offer a multi-child discount!  Playing age is the player’s age as of August 31 the previous year.  Home games and practices are held at Indianola Park.  Away games are played against teams in the Bremerton area.

Register here: 

Practices typically start around the 3rd week of March and the first games are usually the 3rd Saturday in April…we will post more specific info as soon as we have it.  We are a member club of the Kitsap Adult Pee Wee Association www.kpapwa.com.

KYSA will provide players with a jersey and ball cap.  Each team has baseballs, bats, batting helmets, and catcher’s gear.

Players will have to provide a baseball mitt, molded rubber cleats (no metal spikes), grey baseball pants and a maroon baseball belt (if they wear a belt).

Parents may opt to provide any optional gear for their players such as personal helmet, bat, batting gloves, elbow pads, ankle guards, etc.

We are looking for coaches for the upcoming spring season.  Please contact our Baseball AD, Bob Cornwell  at [email protected] for more information and to let him know you’re interested!

What is the age cutoff for baseball?

How much is registration?
Registration for Baseball is $175 for D, C, B string, and Coach Pitch, $125 for T-ball. We also offer multiple player discounts which are applied at checkout.

What does my registration fee go towards?
Because we are a non-profit organization our sports programs run solely on your registrations! Your registration fees help pay for field rentals, sport equipment, insurance fees, official fees, field maintenance, lavatory facilities, ball caps and game jerseys which you get to keep!

Do you offer any scholarships for players?
Yes, we do, but because we factor our scholarships into our seasonal budget and registration fees we only have a limited amount of scholarships available on a case by case basis. You may request for scholarship info by contacting our registrar prior to March 11th.

When do practices begin?
Practices begin on the 3rd Monday of March. Practice days can vary between 2-4 days a week and are dependent on the coach's discretion. A coach will contact you with specific details in regard to your locations, time and days of the week. From previous experience, coaches normally prefer their players to arrive 15 minutes before their scheduled practice time for warmups.

Where are practices and games located?
We typically practice at Indianola Park located at the corner of Indianola Rd and Orca Dr.  T-ball and coach pitch have practiced at Kola-Kole Park in Downtown Kingston in the past.  Our home games are played at Indianola Park.  Away games are played against teams in the Bremerton area.

What should we provide?
Below the knee or full length gray baseball pants, maroon socks, maroon baseball belt, rubber molded cleats, and a baseball mitt. Although we typically find that players tend to bring their own baseball bats, we also provide at least 1-2 bats in our team equipment bags for those who don't.

How long is the season?
Our Baseball program takes place during the springtime (mid March) and ends at the start of summer (mid June).

Is my child able to play up/down?
Requests to "play down" are rare and made on a case-by-case basis. These cases are to be presented to the Warren Avenue Board and then to Central Council at one of the KPAPWA meetings which take place normally every first Wednesday @ 8pm, located at Sheridan Parks & Recreation Center. Central Council is the deciding factor in all play down requests. We do allow players to "play up" but highly encourage that players stay within their string level determined by the Pee Wee age bracket. "Play up" requests are to be made to the registrar, coordinator and/or head coach and will be reviewed by the Warren Avenue board for approval.

How can I volunteer?
You may volunteer for one or more of our roles available upon registration. Coaches and helpers that will be interacting with players during practices and/or games are required to fill out a Coaches Pledge, WSP Background Check, and take the online Sudden Cardiac Arrest certification course.
