Mosquito 11U Spring Baseball
Evaluations will be held on Sunday, April 14th at 1:00pm at LAKEVIEW PARK (rain or shine, come prepared). Come ready with glove, batting helmet (& chin strap), proper shoes (baseball cleats), protective cup & baseball pants. The coaches & assistants will have the players go through some drills to get an idea on skill level to help make evenly matched teams. Teams will be chosen by Tuesday evening & parents will receive an e-mail/call. Some teams will begin practice Wed April 17th. All of these dates are with the hope that the weather cooperates and the fields are ready.

We are always looking for Coaches & Assistants...please volunteer if you can, it is fun & much appreciated. It really is a great age to coach & we love enthusiastic parents to come share their knowledge & love of the sport too! Please contact Dan Braddick or President, Michael Sanfilippo if you are interested & want to know what to expect as part of the coaching team.

There will be no set daily schedule for each team's games & practices as we only have the 2 fields to use. The season will begin with 2 teams practicing on each field for skill development then into league play. All practices & games are held at Lakeview Park (Peanut Pool Ball Diamonds) in the East Hill area of Vernon.

Parents are to remain at the field during practices & games. This is to ensure the safety of your children, in case of an injury you must be at the field to attend to your child as the coaches can only do so much.

The kids love to have an audience...A POSITIVE ONE!! Come cheer & enjoy the learning experience. There is no tolerance for negative words (swearing, put downs, etc;) directed at the coaches, players & especially the UMPS!!

2024 Schedule & Format:
  • The first few weeks of the season will be for practices before we move into games.
  • Each team will have at least 2 nights per week that they will be at the fields.
  • Coaches are also encouraged to arrange extra sessions on the weekends at the fields or by taking advantage of our three batting cages that can be booked through your director.
  • Games will begin at 6:00pm and end at approximately 8:00pm, depending on the time of year; light being the determining factor
  • Each child will be expected to be at the field ready to play 30 minutes before game time
  • Playoffs will be the 2nd and 3rd week of June.
Summer Mosquito Baseball
Summer baseball tryout dates will be announced later in the season.
