All Coaches from Softball, TeeBall, Rookies, Minors, Majors, and Babe Ruth meet on this night to review certifications, league rules, and league events. Coaches will also receive their team equipment, work out their field choices, and identify their practice schedule. Softball and TeeBall Coaches will assemble their teams.
All Rookie, Minor, and Major players & coaches attend. Players perform a series of baseball related activities to get a sense of where each players’ skills are for the purpose of helping coaches assemble their teams. TeeBallers who are ready for Rookies are also invited IF parents feel they can handle being on the same field with 7 & 8 year old players at the Rookies level.
Coaches meet on this night to assemble teams based on player performances at Evaluations - The goal is to assemble the most competitive teams possible. Within a few days after this date, players will be rostered, and parents will be able to see and interact with their team in the Sports Engine App.

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 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)
Rookies (7-8 years old)
Softball (7, 8, & 9 years old)
Minors (9-10 years old)
Majors (11-12 years old)
Babe Ruth (13-15 years old)
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.
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.
