Info and FAQs
2024 Coach Pitch
Welcome to GBA Coach Pitch! The 2024 vice president of Minors is Joshua Page. You may contact him directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Coach Pitch is open to boys and girls age 5 or 6 on April 30, 2024. In other words, their birthdays fall between May 1, 2017 and April 30, 2019. We do not hold try-outs for Coach Pitch and all skill levels are welcome to register.
Coach Pitch at GBA is an in-house rec program. GBA teams will play other GBA teams in a regular season, and a short playoff and championship series. The season runs April through June. Weather and make-up games will dictate the final length/end-date of the season.
When batting, all players will be pitched to by their coach. At this level, we use foam core baseballs for your child's safety.
Schedules will be determined closer to the start of the season. Typically, players can expect at least 1 practice and 1 game a week. Your player's coach will communicate with you directly about practice schedules.
There is a service/fundraising duty for all families of GBA players. For each player you register, you will need to work 2 pop stand shifts (usually 1.5 hours each shift). If you do not want to work the pop stand, you will have to pay a $50 opt-out fee per child when registering.
Equipment for Coach Pitch includes:
Bats must be stamped USA (USSSA bats are not allowed.) Having your own bat is optional for coach pitch. If you are interested in having your own bat to practice with at home, check out this helpful guide >>
Plastic molded spikes (metal not allowed)
