9U Baseball

Age Requirements:

9U is for players born in 2011 and 2012.

We anticipate having 6 to 8 teams in the division. The season will start at the beginning of April and run to the end of June. 9U has a combination of practices and games 3x per week throughout the season. Practices and games times vary from week to week. All games and practices will take place at Fireman's Park and Maynard Park. Our 9U teams only play other 9U teams within Carnarvon, so no travel is required. The season will end with a fun all-club tournament!

Gear Requirements:

Your child will receive a team t-shirt, socks and a Carnarvon Ball Club hat on the first day of the season. This is their uniform, so please ensure that they wear it for each game. They will also need a batting helmet, glove, grey baseball pants and an athletic support. Baseball cleats are not mandatory but most children wear them at this level (soccer cleats are okay!). Please ensure that you mark your child's name in everything. A white label or masking tape works well on the outside of the batting helmet and handwritten on labels in shirts, glove and hats.

Assessments:

Attendance at assessments is mandatory. Our goal in doing assessments (at all levels) is to ensure that we have balanced teams and thus, a more competitive league. Having equal and balanced teams also makes playing much more fun!

Team Selection:

Players are assigned a total score based on their assessment; these scores are used in selecting the teams.

Summer Ball Team and Fees:

Interested players from Carnarvon try out to make a Carnarvon Summer Ball team. This team plays other top teams on the Island. The season ends with an Island-wide, regional tournament. The minimum cost is $50/player.

Field Prep:

Near the start of the season we will have our annual pre-season field preparation day. Date TBA.

The more hands available to help, the more efficiently the work will get done.

Coaching:

This league is run entirely by volunteers, coaches included!  It is our goal to have a minimum of 2 coaches per team with 2 parent helpers (to help out at practices and games) and 1 business manager for the team (to send email reminders to the team families on behalf of the coaches) for each team at the this level. 

Each team will ultimately determine how they would like to structure their coaching staff, but the following is a rough guideline of what is entailed with each role:

Head Coach/Manager (1):

Assistant Coach (1):

  • Must submit a criminal record check prior to season start (done annually).  Follow these instructions: http://www.carnarvonballclub.com/pages/crc
  • Must complete an online NCCP Level 1 coaching certification (cost to be reimbursed by the association): http://nccp.baseball.ca/register.php
  • Attend every practice and game
  • Assist with practices, drills
  • Run warm-ups
  • Base coaching and/or running the pitching machine

Team Business Manager:

  • Organize team volunteers for field prep and score-keeping
  • Liaise with Head Coach/Manager for team communication
  • Collect player availability for practices and games

 Parent Helper (2):

  • This is not an official coaching role, does not require a criminal record check and you will not get the glory of wearing a coaches shirt...but you will be greatly appreciated by parents, kids and coaches.
  • Involves bringing your glove and helping out at all practices and games.

Parent involvement:

All families are required to assist with team duties. These duties consist of score-keeping, field prep and field marshal at ALL SIX regular season home games in addition to concession duties. Don't worry! We will provide training opportunities for these duties, so no advanced experience is required.
