Blaine Area Traveling Baseball Association (BATBA)


15U Team Assignments

Summer team roster assignments for the Blaine  15U teams are being postponed until Friday May 4th.

 


15U Registration Info *Updated 4/19

Blaine 15U Pre-Season Process

  1. Player registration: April 1st- April 10th (via email)
  2. Candidates interested in coaching a 15u Summer team should e-mail  jeffamels@yahoo.com before April 10th
  3. Qualifying Tournament Spots will be reserved by April 20th for both AA and AAA
  4. Team Rosters will be posted on the BATBA website on or before *May 4th.
  5. Player payments due by *May 7th 
  6. Head coaches for both teams will be announced via the BATBA website not later than May 1st

*A meeting  was held Thursday April 19th including a subset of the BATBA board along with representation from the Blaine High School  coaching staff.

As an outcome of the discussion we have decided to postpone the naming of rosters until May 4th.   For context the intent behind the April 20th date was based on the assumption that the high school coaches would have their evaluations include outside practices and games.  However, the weather has been less than cooperative to date.  We believe this postponement is in the best interest of the players and the spirit of  the selection process.

 Blaine 15u Season Overview

  1. Each team will have a 12- game regular season schedule. Followed by single elimination playoffs (July)
  2. Each team will be scheduled for 3 tournaments (late May- end of June) and can qualify for end of year tournaments (July)
  3. In addition to any practices run by the Summer coaches; In the month of June each team will practice 2x per week during the day. These two-hour practices will be facilitated by the high school coaches. During the month of June the high school coaches will maintain direct lines of communication with the Summer coaches and the BATBA Board

Spring Lake Park 15u Program details are being finalized and will be provided before April 15th.
