JARRETTSVILLE REC BASEBALL

IN-HOUSE RULE BOOK

A. Registration Guidelines
Registration:

The age groups are determined by the player's age as of April 30th of each year.


Jarrettsville Baseball offers programs for the following age groups: Age 4 T-Ball, 5-6 Clinic, 7-8 Rookie, 9-10, 11-12, and 13-15.
Player's will be evaluated and drafted in an effort to evenly distribute the levels of talent for the teams. The evaluations will take place each year in March, prior to the draft and team selections. Player's in the 4t-ball and 5-6 age groups are exempt from evaluations.
Parent's of 6, 8, 10, and 12 year olds may request their child to "play up" to the next higher age division. Potential "play ups" must first be evaluated prior to the season draft. Only those player's deemed to be competitive in the new age group will be allowed to play up, and only if there is space available in that group. A player who has played two years in an age division does not automatically qualify to "play up" to the next age group. He will be evaluated first and must be deemed competitive in order to play in the next higher age group. The final decision for "play up" requests will be made by the Baseball Director.
Parent's of 9, 11, and 13 year olds may request their child to "play down" to the next lower age division. The player will be evaluated and must consistently demonstrate that he does not have the skills to safely play at his own age level. The final decision for "play down" requests will be made by the Baseball Director.

B. Jarrettsville Baseball Managers/Coaches Selections
Jarrettsville Baseball Coaches are selected each year based on the applicant's history with Jarrettsville Baseball, reputation, past performance, and level of experience. All interested baseball coaches are required to submit a coaches application form each year in order to be considered. All coaches are subjected to a background check, as required by the Jarrettsville Rec Council and Harford County Parks & Rec. Selection for coaching a team is conditional on a successful background investigation.
Additional requirements to be a Jarrettsville Baseball coach include attending, as much as possible, all Jarrettsville Baseball Coach's meetings. The monthly meetings begin in late fall and continue each month as specified by the Baseball Director.
