What is the volunteer fee, why is it required and how can I earn a refund?
The volunteer fee is required to elicit greater volunteerism and parent participation with the league. The Wm. S. Hart Baseball & Softball league is a non-profit organization staffed and supported by a team of dedicated volunteers. You can earn your $50 volunteer fee back during the regular season by participating in any number of volunteer opportunities which may include working a shift in the canteen, helping out with equipment distribution, assisting with tryouts or one of many other activities. A three hour commitment is required.

What are the benefits of early / online registration?.
Early registration will offer more options for selecting a tryout time and will be a savings of $20 per registrant over in walk-in registration. Additionally many of our leagues will reach capacity prior to the dates for tryouts and onsite registration. To ensure your children have the opportunity to play we highly recommend early online registration.

How do I know what league to place my child (children) in?
Please consult the league age chart which is posted in the league forms section of our website. Generally the online registration system will ‘suggest’ placement based on the player's age as of 08/31/2018 for baseball and 12/31/2017 for softball.

What if I selected a time for tryouts that I can no longer attend? Is it possible to change my selected tryout time?
You may select a different tryout time based on availability however the deadline to change any tryout time will be the close of online registration (8/31/2017 – 11:59 PM). No changes will be permitted after this time.

What if I need to cancel my child’s registration?
You may cancel your registration at any time up until the draft/team assignment process is complete. If your registration is canceled before tryouts have begun, there will be a refund reduction of $30 per canceled registration. If your registration is canceled once tryouts have begun for the league there will be a refund reduction of $100 per canceled registration. No refunds will be given after the drafts/team assignments are complete. Tryouts for the Fall season begin on September 9, 2017, at 9:00 AM.

Will my child (children) tryout for team assignment?
With the exception of Shetland league it is recommended that your child tryout on one of the predetermined dates. Shetland aged players DO NOT TRYOUT.

What if my child (children) do not tryout or if we are unable to attend tryouts?
Children who do not tryout will typically be assigned to a team via a hat pick during the drafts. All children with a confirmed registration will be placed on a team.

If I have a conflict in practice days, where and when do I make that request?
You can note the conflict during the online registration process. If you register at walk-in, you can tell the personnel in the tryout booth. There is no guarantee of team placement even with a conflicting practice day. No team movement after draft.
