-How do I know if my child is on a protected roster? Did your child play last season? If so, please contact the Head or Asst. Coach from that team and ask he/she if they are coaching again this season and if so, did they include your child on their protected roster list? If so, then there is no need to attend the draft. If not, then you will need to attend.
-I signed up to Volunteer as a Team Mom or Coach, what do I need to do now? Please visit the "Apply to Coach" tab under "Baseball Leagues" or at the top left of this page. There you will submit a volunteer application and background check. You must complete this online check before interacting with the team or stepping on the field. This background check is good for one year.
-When will I know what team my child has been placed on? Coaches will know their rosters by February 6th. They will be given your contact info so they can reach out to you. You are also able to look online under your SportsEngine account once teams have been formed. Please allow 2-3 days for coaches to contact you and for rosters to be updated online.
-What if we cannot attend the February 3rd Draft Day? No problem! If your child is unable to attend the Draft, that's okay! Players not present will enter a "blind draft" and randomly be placed on a team.
-When will my child have practices and games? Specific practice times are chosen by team coaches at the draft. Practices are set to start February 12th. Game schedules will be announced after the draft. Opening day will be March 2nd.

CAB recreational baseball age divisions are based on USSSA age guidelines. A player's age as of May 1, 2024 is the age division that a player is eligible to play in the Fall 2023/SPRING 2024 season.
Please use this link to calculate your child's eligible age group for the 2024 Season (8/1/2023-7/31/2024):
|BLASTBALL||Competition Ages 3-4|
|5/6U T-BALL||Competition Ages 5-6|
|7U COACH PITCH||Competition Age 7|
|8U COACH PITCH||Competition Age 8|
|9U||Competition Age 9|
|10U||Competition Age 10|
|11U||Competition Age 11|
|12U||Competition Age 12|
|13U||Competition Age 13|
|14U||Competition Age 14|
|15-18U||Competition Ages 15-18|
For those age divisions that do not have enough participants to maintain "age pure" league play, that age division could be combined with another age division, such as 13U/14U. Players in any age division are eligible to register for an older age division, one year older. If a player wants to play in an age division two years older, their parents must submit a completed Play-Up Request Form.
In the Fall seasons, it is common to combine 7&8U, 9&10U, 11&12U, 13&14U and 15-18U. In the Spring seasons, it is common to combine 9&10U, 11&12U, 13&14U and 15-18U.
Players are NOT allowed to play in a younger age division, unless the player has a documented physical or mental disability. Parents of players needing to play in a younger age division will be required to complete an Age Waiver Request Form.
