When is Registration? We try to open Online Registration by January 1st and sometimes sooner. There is also an On-Site Registration the last two Saturdays in January in the Blue Mountain Room in the Giant Food Store on Linglestown Roa.
What is my best source of information for the upcoming season? www.stba.cc is kept current and open all year. Check it out and look at "2018 Season" often as we go through the Winter.
What are the Age groups? Players range from 5 - 19 in a variety of teams. Once registered, a child may be subject to "tryouts or evaluations" at which time skill will be evaluated and any concerns from the parents or coaches will be addressed.
What is the cost? The STBA Board determines new season registration fees in November each year and once known, the fees are posted to the website. There is always a discount for families with more than one player, with the oldest playing and normal fee and subsequent players are given the discount.
What can we expect during T Ball games? The first four weeks, the batters will hit off of a tee. The fifth week starts coach pitch. Batters are given five swings of the bat. If they do not get a hit, the batter is given the tee.
When will practices begin? Once tryouts and evaluations are finished, players are placed in teams and teams are turned over to the coaching staff. Coaches will contact parents with details such as practice times and locations. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT PARENTS RETAIN COACHES CONTACT INFORMATION because your coach is your best source of information.
When do games begin? Season opens in mid April. Opening Day & Picture Day are on the same day at the same site. Check the website "GAME SCHEDULES" from time to time.
Where are the playing fields? This information is posted under the GAME SCHEDULE on this website.
