Welcome

Welcome to the Spring 2023 VBA Season Registration!

  PLEASE READ IN FULL, IMPORTANT INFORMATION BEFORE YOU REGISTER!!!

THIS REGISTRATION IS FOR BASEBALL ONLY.

 

This registration session will allow you to complete contact information, sign up for participation and submit payment. To complete registration through our secure site, please have your Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or checking account information available.  Following the completion of this registration, you will see a charge on your account.

For all divisions coaches determine practice days and places and the game schedule is determined after teams are formed.  

Players will need to have their own glove.  Many bring their own bat and helmet as well but teams will have some extras as needed.  Baseball cleats are recommended but not mandatory and your coach will determine the color pants for your team.   The league provides a team jersey, hat and belt.  

Opening Day and Closing days will be announced shortly. 

Divisions are as follows:

All ages listed below are league ages.  League age is the age your child will be BEFORE May 1, 2023 (except for t-ball, see below)

Registration will be by league age and not by division.  We will place players in divisions based on evaluations and parent conversations.   There will be a place for notes where you can request your player be in a certain division but please keep in mind that not all requests will be granted. 

If your child is looking to "play up" please register them in the highest division you can per the system and in the notes make the request to be considered for a higher division.
