F.A.Q.

 

 Is there travel required ? Yes (with exception of coach pitch clinic) this is a travel league – games are played in Hamden and in area towns – some teams may travel farther (e.g., Wolcott, Thomaston). It depends on what other towns sign up. We try to host ½ of all games in Hamden but sometimes schedules can’t be worked out that way. 

 

What Leagues are we playing in? Boys Coach Pitch will be a clinic style at Bassett. Boys ages 8U, 10U,12U will play in either Branford, North Haven, the Central CT Fall Ball League OR East Shore. Girls 10u, 12U and 14U will play in Little League D5 Fall ball (Run by Wallingford Little League) 

 

What age do I sign up my child for? General guidelines are:

 

•  Boys (who will be) ages 6 - 8 playing coach pitch in 2016 should sign up for coach pitch clinic.

•  Boys (who will be) ages 7-8 coming from coach pitch should sign up for 8U (which is a kid pitch league)

•  Boys (who will be) 9-10 who played in major green should sign up for 10U.

•  Boys (who will be) 11 that played in major green should sign up for 12U.

•  Boys (who will be) 10 -12 that played in major gold should sign up for 12U.

•  Boys who are 12 and moving to 90 ft field (Babe Ruth) in spring should sign up for 13U team.

 

What is schedule?

Games are normally scheduled for weekends – although some towns have lighted fields and will schedule some games for under the lights during the week. Expect games Sat/Sun, some double headers. Games start TBD (end of August/ beginning Sept) 

 

Extra fee? 

A few coaches have expressed interest in putting their teams into additional tournaments. The fees cover uniform, insurance, balls, umpires for play in the CCFBL or LL fall softball.  Any additional costs associated with participation in extra tournaments will be passed onto individual teams. 

 

Evaluation? 

This is to help make sure teams are divided equally and boys are placed on the right level. 

 

Is my child guaranteed a spot?

 HFBSA wants all players who want to play to do so, however there is a practical limit to the number of teams related to number of volunteer coaches.  In the past a shortage of coaches has resulted in a limitation in number of teams and we have had to regrettably turn kids away.
