Spring 2021 baseball registration is open, and the key dates for the season are below. There are also a few changes and improvements to the program for the spring season. Please refer to the Little League age chart to determine what “League-Age” your child will be for spring 2021:

 

  • TeeBall and Machine Pitch fees have been REDUCED. All other divisions’ fees remain the same.
  • Minors- no changes
  • Majors Division (ages 11-12 but allowing some 10’s to play up) has been replaced by the Intermediate Division (ages 11-13 only, no playing up). In years past, we have played Majors in the spring and Int. in the fall. We have made the change to play Int. year-round based on several factors, including positive feedback from families regarding the Int. format, which includes slightly greater distances between bases (from 60’ to 70’) and pitching mound (from 46’ to 50’), and allows base runners to lead-off. This different age structure prohibits younger players to play up, but allows less-developed 13 year old’s the option to stay in Int. on field 4 rather than move to Juniors on the full-sized field 8. We encourage most 13 year old’s to play Juniors since this is the format and field size they will play on in both Middle and High School, and all 13 yr olds who played Juniors in fall 2020 will remain in Juniors. It is at the discretion of the player’s parents and coach’s evaluation which division a 13 yr old should play.
  • Junior and Senior Divisions will NOT start later in the spring like they have in the past, and will have the same schedule timeline as younger divisions for Spring 2021 due to the modified CMS athletics schedule this year. Jr/Sr games will therefore begin before the expected CMS middle school and high school baseball season and will initially include both weeknight and weekend games, but will be limited to weekend games only (which may include some double headers) once the CMS season begins. If the CMS season is cancelled, we will adjust the game schedule to include some weeknight games.
  • Big League Division- our local District successfully started up a 17-18 year old division last season, and several other leagues fielded teams for inter-league play. SCAA will be participating with a team for spring 2021. This division will function just like the Jr & Sr divisions with scheduling, opponents, and costs.
  • ALL DIVISIONS- SCAA is a parent volunteer run organization. We are a non-profit, member-only association. All board members, commissioners, field maintainers, uniform/equipment/concessions/awards coordinators and other volunteers donate their time and effort to make our youth sports programs possible. Without volunteers, we don’t function. Added to the registration process this year is a drop down box to select how your family would like to pitch in with our program by volunteering. There are over a dozen options with varying degrees of time commitment to fulfill, and we recognize that family and personal situations may make certain roles difficult for some members, but at a minimum each family is expected to volunteer two shifts in the concession stand over the course of the season. Please reply to this email if you have questions about any of these volunteer roles and what they entail.
  • SCAA will have COVID-related safety protocols in place, based on current State and local guidelines as the season progresses. Aside from that, we anticipate having a typical season, just like we did for fall 2020.

SCAA Baseball has structured the baseball divisions to be in line with Little League guidelines and the other Little League North Carolina District 3 associations. The structure builds our association from the T-Ball Division through Majors or Intermediate Division and then onto a full size field with the LL Junior and Senior League program.
