T-Ball

 

Registration for the Spring 2022 Season is now closed! Registration for the Spring 2023 Season will be open on December 1st.

We offer a T-ball league for kids ages 5 to 7 years old in order to teach kids the fundamentals of baseball including hitting, throwing, and playing the game. Each week our Crossroads kids attend a practice where they work on skill development and then each Saturday they play a game with another team. In addition, we offer a devotional each week during the practices to teach our kids and families more about Jesus Christ and the gospel. The league is co-ed and for children between 5 - 7 years old (age as of 3/1/21). The registration cost is $60.

Team Placement

As Crossroads Sports has grown to the extent that we now have more than 3000 participants annually, the number of "same team player requests" and "specific coach requests" has reached the point that we are no longer able to accommodate all the requests due to time constraints along with our desire to attempt to create "equally skilled" teams.

With that being said, as this is a ministry in which we use sports as a way to reach new families (outreach requests), we will accommodate a request to play on the same team if the person you have invited has not previously participated in a Crossroads Sports League.

In addition to this we are unfortunately not able to honor specific date and time requests.

However, we will still allow you to select one night that you are unable to practice, Do our best to have siblings practice on the same night.

Practices

  • Practices will be held once per week either on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday evening.
  • Players will be assigned a practice time of either 5:00-6:15 pm or 6:15-7:30 pm.
  • Each practice will include a 10-minute team meeting & devotion.
  • Due to possible family scheduling conflicts, you will have the opportunity to exclude one practice night.
  • Practice days will remain the same for the entirety of the season
  • Practices will not be made up if inclement weather causes a cancellation. (please view our complete weather policy)
