Spring Baseball Registration Now Open

Spring Rec Baseball

 

The Howard County Youth Program (HCYP) Spring Recreational Baseball program is a great way for kids to be introduced to baseball for the first time or to continue to improve their skills. This program runs from March through June. All practices will be held at a local Howard County School or Park field. All games will be held at Kiwanis-Wallas Park.

Please sign up in the division that is presented to you during the registration process. The division selected is based on the participant’s age as of 8/31/2019. If you would like to request to play in a division other than the division presented, please make a note in the COMMENTS section of the registration form. Those decisions are made on a case-by-case basis by the division commissioners and the league commissioner.

Additional information about the baseball divisions, registration, and draft of participants can be found on the HCYP Baseball web page for each individual division.

Rookie and Pinto Registration Details

  • In our Rookie and Pinto divisions, we try to accommodate as many requests from parents as possible. You can request a specific coach or to play with certain friends. However, please note that we are NOT able to accommodate all requests. In any given year, we are usually able to accommodate about 75% of all requests. The most prevalent reason for an unfulfilled request is the 13 player limit for each team. When we have many requests for groups of specific kids, the number of teammate requests far exceed the total number of players on each team. We are NOT able to accommodate any requests for practice days or times.
  • Rookie games will be every Saturday at either 9 AM or 5 PM and practices will be during the week on a day and time determined by each coach.
  • Pinto games will be during the week and practices will be every Saturday at a time determined by each coach.
  • Weather permitting, there will be 10 scheduled games during the season for each Rookie and Pinto team.
  • Prices:
    • $125 ($15 discount for early bird registration by 12/31) per player in Rookie (Ages 5-6)
    • $185 ($20 discount for early bird registration by 12/31) per player in Pinto (Ages 7-8)

International, Minor, and Major Registration Details

  • Our International, Minor, and Major divisions are known as our “Little League” divisions.
  • Players within the International, Minor, and Major playing age are registered to the Little League division.
  • NEW Little League players who DID NOT attend the October or January evaluations, will be assigned to an organization by the draft coordinator.
  • New players or players returning HCYP Little League players requesting a redraft are drafted to an organization, e.g. the Yankees, before the start of the season. To request a redraft, enter "REDRAFT" in the Additional Comments field during the registration process.
  • After being placed in an organization, coaches will evaluate the players and place the player in the appropriate division based on age, skill, and roster size.
  • Once drafted to an organization, the player remains with that organization throughout the little league divisions.
  • Younger siblings entering Little League are automatically assigned to the same organization of elder siblings.
  • Weather permitting, teams in all little league divisions for an organization play games on the same day at the same time. In other words, the International Yankees, Minor Yankees, and Major Yankees play games at the same time on the same day but on different fields. There will be some exceptions during the season for make-up games and schedule conflicts.
  • Each team organization will play a game on Saturday and one or two games during the week.
  • Weather permitting, there will be 15 scheduled games during the regular season.
  • Price: $245 ($25 discount for early bird registration by 12/31) per player (Ages 9-12)

Pony Registration Details

  • All Pony players are redrafted each year. Players are drafted by coaches and not assigned by the league, so please do not request a specific coach in your registration form.
  • Each team will have one game on Saturday and one or two games during the week.
  • Weather permitting, there will be 15 scheduled games during the regular season.
  • Price: $245 ($25 discount for early bird registration by 12/31) per player (Ages 13-14)

  • Price: $245 ($25 discount for early bird registration by 12/31) per player (Ages 15-18)

We are NOT able to accommodate any requests for practices dates and times. Practices are determined by our volunteer coaches to accommodate their schedule after all players have been allocated to teams. Please DO NOT request practice times in your registration.
