PYJSBA NEEDS COACHES & UMPIRES! Below are who we have so far. Please consider joining us! Our community’s children NEED YOU!

As of 2/1/2023

Umpires - 2

Coaches

TeeBall - 9

Rookies - 3

Softball 7, 8, & 9 - 0

Minors - 3

Majors - 3

Babe Ruth - 0

We’ve had some questions regarding practice and game days and times, so people can sign up for their Volunteer Shifts. While schedules can and do change due to weather or emergency, the following is what we can provide:

Games:

Games are scheduled based on umpire availability, field availability, and coach availability. We have a fairly clear picture of when these games will be based on confirmed umpire availability.

TeeBall games last about an hour. All other levels are capped at two hours in length.

TeeBall (4-6 years old)

  • TeeBall transitions to weeknight games on their practice night once coaches feel they are ready. Some coaches opt to begin this transition sooner than others. Because TeeBall does not require umpires or specific field dimensions, schedules are worked out among coaches at our first Coaches’ Meeting on or around March 1.
  • TeeBall Saturday games are scheduled for 10am at the LEH Sports Complex.

Rookies (7-8 years old)

  • Rookies weeknight games are scheduled on Tuesday nights.
  • Rookies Saturday games are scheduled at 11am.

Softball (7, 8, & 9 years old)

  • Softball 7,8,9 officially has enough for a team!  We will look to practice 2 nights a week on Mondays & Fridays to accommodate girls who are also playing baseball, and once coaches feel they are ready, we will look to schedule games if possible. Schedules are worked out among coaches at our first Coaches’ Meeting on or around March 1.

Minors (9-10 years old)

  • Minors weeknight games are scheduled primarily on Thursday nights. Depending on field, opponent, and umpire availability, a game here and there could be moved to Wednesday night.
  • Minors Saturday games are scheduled between 1 to 6pm depending on field, opponent, and umpire availability.

Majors (11-12 years old)

  • Majors weeknight games are scheduled primarily on Wednesday nights.  Depending on field, opponent, and umpire availability, a game here and there could be moved to Thursday night.
  • Majors Saturday games are scheduled between 1 to 6pm depending on field, opponent, and umpire availability.

Babe Ruth (13-15 years old)

  • Babe Ruth weeknight AND weekend games are scheduled primarily around the middle school and high school players’ schedules and field availability.

Practices:

Practices at all levels are held during the week, typically starting at 6pm. The days are up to coaches to decide based on their schedules and field availability, which we decide as a program at our Coaches’ Meeting scheduled on or around  March 1.

  • TeeBall (4-6 years old) typically practices 1 night during the week for an hour to an hour and a half. These practices may transition to games when coaches feel their team is ready.
  • Rookies (7-8 years old), Minors (9-10 years old), and Majors (11-12 years old) typically practice 1-2 nights during the week for two hours. 
  • Babe Ruth (13-15 years old) typically practice 1-2 nights during the week for two hours, but this level is not as consistent because the bulk of these players play for the middle school team. 

Regarding everyone’s concerns about messages from other organizations offering baseball to players in our town, please refer to the topic on our FAQ Page. Your concern and loyalty are Second to None, but it’s simply another option to play more ball just like it is for players from here to South Toms river who want a Ripken Baseball experience.

We are excited to announce “Skills & Drills” Sessions begin on January 16 for all 9-15 year old baseball players! Details are emailed once registration is confirmed.
