How do I signup to help my players team or to be a coach?

            During the registration process, a section will ask you if you want to volunteer and in what capacity. The success of LF Baseball and Softball starts with parents volunteering to coach and help our teams. If you are interested in coaching, please sign up through your child's registration.


When is Opening Day and when do practices and games start?

Practices will start the week of March 21 with Opening Day Parade and Games tentatively slated for April 9. The season will end on or about June 11. No schedules will be created until after registration closes and teams are formed.
           

I am registering my child and believe he/she is in the wrong age group.

Please note baseball age cut off is August 31, 2022 and Softball age cut off is January 1, 2022 (assume your child's age on these dates). The system will automatically place your child in the appropriate age group based on their birth-date.


If you would like for your child to "play up" in a higher league, please email us. We will evaluate these requests and approve them as we see fit on a case by case basis.

 

My child is only 6 and doesn’t turn 7 until after the season ends, why are they in the 7/8 league?

 

Your child has a summer birthday, for baseball registration purposes assume their age on September 1, 2022. The league we play in has establishes the age cutoff, which aligns with the school age cutoff. Previously our leagues used a May 1 cutoff. Changing to a September 1 date aligns kids in the same grade with the same sports age group. For example, the 7/8 age division used to be a mix of 1st – 3rd graders, but is now all 1st and 2nd graders.

 

My child did not play last year because of COVID restrictions; can he/she play down this year?

 

The spring 2020 season was cancelled for all players, and unfortunately, everyone missed a year of development. Additionally, since the spring 2020 season was cancelled your child may have only played one year in a given age group before being moved up. The age cut-off dates are a requirement imposed by the county leagues in which we participate and will affect every player (either for the 2021 or 2022 Spring Season). This is a league requirement and is non-negotiable; any request to "play down" cannot be approved.

 

Can I request for my child to play with their friend or request a specific coach?

We accept requests (play with a friend or Coach requests) in our 3/4, 5/6 and 6U softball leagues ONLY. We do our best to accommodate these requests, but we       have had instances where a Coach received too many requests, which exceeded our normal number of players allowed per team. We do not take requests in any other league besides those mentioned above. There are no exceptions.  

 

Where are the games played?

3/4 Tball, 5/6 Tball, 7/8 Coach Pitch will play all games "in-house" against other LF teams at our main complex on Andover Road.

 

Our softball and older baseball teams play in a broader league with teams from other local organizations. While some games will be at our home fields, others will be played at other Anne Arundel County fields. 

 

Why is the system wait-listing my player when I attempt to register?

Some of our softball and older baseball leagues may fill up before the registration deadline. Once a league is full, we will wait list to see if we obtain additional
players to create more teams, however there are no guarantees. There is no payment required to add your player to a wait-list. Please do not delay in registering your player to secure your roster spot. 

 

When will my players coach contact me?
           
Once we have our coaches meetings towards the end of March. PLEASE be sure your contact information in your online account is current since this is what is provided to the coach.
