ITEMS WE PROVIDE AND WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO PURCHASE

Foley Parks & Recreation will provide uniforms and equipment (bats, helmets, balls, and catchers equipment) for each team. You will need to purchase the following items:
Glove
Cleats
Catchers Cup
Bat (if you prefer your own, it must have a USA stamp and be 2 5/8 inch barrel or smaller)
Batting Helmet (if you prefer your own, 6U-10U require face guard)

**Uniforms will be passed out at practice (before games start) by your coach.**

PRACTICES AND GAMES

Your coach will contact you to let you know when you will have your first practice.

Practices will be 1-3 days a week until games start. Once games begin, your practice schedule will depend on your game schedule. Teams are not allowed to meet more than 3 days a week. No games or practices will be scheduled on Wednesdays, Saturdays or Sundays with the exception of the games played on Opening Day.

In the event of rain, we will make a decision no sooner than 4:00pm to cancel games/practices. Coach’s will be notified immediately and will be responsible for passing that info along to their team. We will also post information on our Foley Parks & Recreation Facebook page.

 

IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER:

  • Registration fees must be paid in full before your child receives their uniform. 
  • We will need a copy of the child’s birth certificate before the season starts if the child has never participated in any Foley Parks and Recreation youth sports programs.
