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.
Playing up requires previous playing experience with Clarksburg Baseball at the age-appropriate level:
- Players seeking to play up to 6U Baseball must have at least one season of playing experience with Clarksburg Baseball in 4U
- Players seeking to play up to 8U Baseball must have at least two seasons of playing experience with Clarksburg Baseball in 6U
- Players seeking to play up to 10U Baseball must have at least two seasons of playing experience with Clarksburg Baseball in 8U
- Players seeking to play up to 12U Baseball must have at least two seasons of playing experience with Clarksburg Baseball in 10U
- Players seeking to play up to 13U Baseball must have at least two seasons of playing experience with Clarksburg Baseball in 12U
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.
Head Coach: Teaching skills and completing the administrative aspects of a team such as making the line-up. Serving as a role model for both players and parents. No prior experience needed, as we provide training.
Co-Coach: Teaching and administering a team with 2 coaches splitting the functions of a head coach. Serving as role models for both players and parents. No prior experience needed, as CBI will train you.
Assistant Coach: Assisting the head coach with practices and games in teaching the skills necessary to make progress. Serving as role models for both players and parents. No prior experience needed, as CBI will train you.
Team Manager: Does not involve any “on field” activities. Team manager is responsible for season-long administrative and logistical responsibilities such as: team snap updates, rescheduling games, securing a field for postponed games, and taking the lead on logistics for the end of season party. Team managers can expect other roles, which lighten the administrative plate for the head coach throughout the season.***While greatly appreciated, simply organizing the weekly team snack schedule, “team mom” does not qualify for the volunteer bond whereas team manager does qualify.***
Team Courier: Does not involve any “on field” activities. Team Courier is responsible for season-long duties including: picking up uniforms, volunteer bond checks, photos, spirit wear, and trophies for their team. ALL pickups will be in the local Clarksburg area. (6 times/season)
Other Volunteer Opportunities when you select “Contact me to volunteer”:
Field Maintenance: Field chalking and raking done for 40-60 minutes on Sat mornings (2-3 times per season)
Mulch Delivery (Spring only): Help with distributing mulch orders for our annual fundraiser in March. We pair volunteers together, so a “hauling” vehicle is not needed. (1 Sat in the pre-season for 2 hours)
Uniform Help: Folding and Bagging uniforms during the preseason
Equipment Help: Preparing the bags for teams’ equipment during the season, inspecting equipment for damage, cleaning equipment, and postseason storage (1 time per season)
Photo Delivery: Delivering Photos to teams at their practice/game fields. (2-3 evenings late in the season)
Uniform Delivery: Delivering uniforms to teams at their practice/game fields. (2-3 evenings during the pre-season)

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.
