Hello Tempe South families!

 

With the kids back in school, I want to make sure you're aware of the baseball options with Tempe South this fall.  Once again, we are providing a fun way to keep the kids playing ball in Tempe. 

For the fall, we have a limited number of player spots available.  Please don't wait till the last minute to register!

Here's the overview and key details.  A simplified age chart is at the bottom of the email.

For ages 9-10-11-12, registration is now open.  Fees are $100/player.  We will have 5-8 teams in both Minors and Majors divisions.  

  • Teams are announced on 9/20. 
  • Practices start 9/23 and games  from 10/18 through 12/6.  
  • Teams will have 1 midweek practice, an optional Saturday practice and 1 Friday night game per week.  We expect that players will be involved in other sports and activities, so coaches are advised to plan for less than perfect attendance.  Depending on the number of teams, we might add the occasional Wednesday night game as well.

Games and practices will be at Bloomquist Field (TSC), Mantei Field (Broadway & Hardy) or Gonzo Field (Rio Salado & Mill).  Some games will be at Stottlemyre Field (Baseline & Priest) with our partners at Tempe Guadalupe Little League.

 

For ages 13 & 14, registration is now open.  We have one complete team and hope to have enough interest to field a second.  Players in this division will compete in a fall season against other local little leagues.   Practices will start in the next 2 weeks.  

  • Estimated schedule:  15 games per team.  Games on Mon/Thurs/Sat.  Seasons starts mid-September and ends the week before Thanksgiving.  Usually have 2 games per week.

 

Ages 5-8:  Clinics will be at Bloomquist Field on Thursday nights, October 24, November 7 & 14.  Advance registration is needed (nominal fee).  Start times will be announced on tempesouth.com in early October.

 

What division should you register for?

  • Born on or after 9/1/2011 = league age 8 or younger.  Three clinics
  • Born between 9/1/2009 - 8/31/2011 = league age 9 & 10.  Minors division (introductory kid pitch).  
  • Born between 9/1/2007 - 8/31/2009 = league age 11 & 12.  Majors division.  All players ages 11 & 12 will be placed in fall Majors division.  This will give them a chance to play with players their age and gauge their readiness for this division in the more competitive spring season.  Requests to play "down" in Minors will not be considered for the fall.
  • Born between 9/1/2005 - 8/31/2007 = league 13 & 14.  Juniors division.  Full 90' bases, prepare for middle school distances.  Requests to play "down" in Majors division will not be considered for the fall.
