IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ
The age cutoff is your child’s age as of August 31, 2014. Skill assessments, as with practices and games, will take place at the baseball fields behind Cox Mill elementary school. Teams will practice during the week and play games primarily on Saturdays with a few weekday games as needed.

Concessions: All teams will be required to work in the concession stand at least once during the season, although it may be more depending on number of teams in all sports.

Assessments

Assessments will take place on Saturday, August 16, 2014. The time for each age group will be determined once registration closes. If your child played baseball in the Spring at Odell, and is returning to the same age group, they DO NOT need to be assessed. Only players that are new to Odell OR are moving up to a new age group will need to be assessed.

Teams will be drafted immediately following assessments. Every player will be put on a team regardless of skill.

There are no assessments for tee ball (ages 5-6).

Coaching

If you intend to coach or assist, please email baseball@odellsports.com with “Odell Fall Baseball 2014” in the subject line. Please provide your name, phone number, email address, age group(s), whether you want to be a head coach or assist, and who you are coaching with. Please note that we cannot guarantee that you will be able to coach a team. After registration is complete, the Baseball Coordinator will determine how many teams are needed at each age group. History has told us that every year we don’t have enough coaches, so please volunteer to help coach.

For the past few seasons our 13 and older boys have played in the North Meck League (NML). NML is comprised of Davidson, Cornelius, Huntersville, Mallard Creek, East Lincoln and Stewards of the Game. It is our intention to once again field teams to play with NML. We will have teams for 13/14 and 15/16 age groups.
