Baseball & Softball Registration

Fall Season Registration Closed!!

***Baseball: Ages are as of 5/01/2018***

***Softball: 8U are Grades 1-3, 10U Grades 4-5 and 13U Grades 6-8***

 

Clarksburg will work with families on an case-by-case basis to make the best placement for each player based on a combination of age, skills, and experience. For example, we would recommend an 8-year old player new to baseball start in Machine Pitch for a season before progressing on to Player Pitch. If a player wants to play up a level, they will be subject to a skills assessment.

PLACEMENT POLICY:

Clarksburg Baseball makes every reasonable effort to place players on the team of their choice, as requested in the Coach and Player Preferences sections of the registration record. Clarksburg Baseball is also committed to being fair and objective in the assignment of players to teams. In the event that the number of requests for a particular Coach and/or Player exceeds the maximum allowable team size, requesting players will be assigned to that team in order of registration, as specified by the Registration Date in the registration record, up to the maximum team size. The remaining registrants not assigned to that team will be assigned at random to another team within the same age bracket. The exceptions to this placement rule are any children of the Head Coach or Co-Coaches (up to two) seeking assignment on that team, who will be afforded top placement priority or if the child played for the time the following season they will get priority, regardless of Registration Date.

About Clarksburg Baseball

Clarksburg Baseball and Softball was founded in 2007 by a small group of parents who splintered off from a Clarksburg area, broad based, youth sports, organization to focus their efforts exclusively on baseball activities. From that inaugural season, the organization has grown by five fold to include almost 40 current teams, including a recreational division, select(travel) teams, and recently added softball divisions for girls.
