Rec FAQ

FAQ  4-8 Year Olds

 

When is the deadline for registering 4 to 8 year olds?
Registration for the upcoming Recreational League season opens January 1. Registration closes March 1 so that teams can be formed, but additional registrations will be accepted after March 1 if space is available. A $10 late fee applies to late registrations.
Can both girls and boys play in this league?
Yes. Both boys and girls are welcome at all levels of play with West Jeff Baseball (Recreational League: 4-8 years old and Competitive League: 8-14 years old).
What equipment will my child need to play baseball?
Your child will need a pair of cleats, a glove, and an athletic cup for boys. Batting helmets will be provided by WJBB, along with catcher's gear and bats.
Will my child be provided a uniform?
Each player will receive a shirt, ball cap, and a pair of baseball pants. The uniform is to be used for game days.This uniform is kept by the player at the end of the season. The cost of the uniform is a portion of the registration fee.
Who will coach my child's team?
Coaches and Assistant Coaches for both our Recreational (4-8) and Competitive (8-14) Leagues are volunteers, and are typically parents of players.
Can I become a coach?
All parents are encouraged to apply for a coaching position If you have knowledge of the game, can make a commitment to a team for approximately 10 to 12 weeks, and wish to help children learn and succeed, then you can make a difference in supporting youth baseball in our mountain communities. Please see the coaching section of this website for more details and expectations. Fill out a coach application to be considered.
What are the rules for my child's age group?
This website contains a link to specific rules for each age group. 4/5-year-old T-Ball, 6-year-old coach pitch, 7-year-old machine pitch, 8-year-old machine pitch.
Can my child play with their friends?
Ideally, yes. West Jeff Baseball will do everything possible to place players with peers from their home school area, but such placement is dependent on the number of registrants from each "catchment" area of the community and may not always be possible. We do our best to accommodate parent requests made through the "Comments" section of the registration process.
What school areas make up the areas for teams?
Bergen Meadow and Bergen Valley Elementary
Wilmot Elementary
Marshdale Elementary
Parmalee Elementary
West Jeff Elementary
Elk Creek Elementary
Evergreen Country Day School
King Murphy Elementary
Ralston Elementary
Rocky Mountain Academy
Evergreen Academy
Montessori schools 

Where are practices and games held?
Practices are held at a variety of area fields, most typically Wilmot Elementary School; games are held at  Stagecoach Field and other area parks.
How often do the teams practice?
Teams at the Recreation League level typically practice once per week; practice days are decided by coaches, with input from their team's parents.
How long does the season run?
Practices will start, weather permitting, in the beginning to middle of April. Games will begin around the end of April and fall on the weekends. The season will end by the end of June.
Can my child play on the same team with the same coach each year?
That is generally the case during Rec ball and until your child transitions to Competitive league at ages 8/9. At that time, the makeup of the team changes as players attend skill evaluations for Competitive league held each September, and are drafted according to ability. For Rec league, please make note of specific coach, team, and school team requests.
