Is my child eligible to play Warwick Township Baseball?
If you live within the WTB boundary area (boundary map), and your child is between the ages of 4 and 12 as of April 30, they are eligible to play for Warwick Township Baseball.
If you do not live within the WTB boundary area, but the public/parochial school where your child attends is within the boundary area, your child is eligible to play for Warwick Township Baseball.
Warwick Township Baseball is a Little League organization and abides by all of the rules and regulations followed by all Little League organizations.
How much does it cost to register for Warwick Township Baseball?
The cost to register for the 2019 Spring season is:
All ages will receive a uniform t-shirt, pants, and hat . All age groups will play roughly the same number of games (slightly less for T-Ball). The difference in price is due to the fact that umpires and junior umpires are used to officiate games in the older age groups.
Is there a discount to register multiple children?
The family maximum for the 2019 Spring season is: $365 per family (Does not include the $50 Booster Card fee)
What are Booster Cards?
The Warwick booster cards are cards that offer discounts at many local businesses. A card can be used any number of times throughout the entire year.
The booster cards are the only mandatory fundraiser the league runs. When you register a child, a $50 fee is added to the registration (per family; not per child). Early in the season, you will receive 5 booster cards that you can then resell at face value ($10) to recoup your $50.
What are the responsibilities of the team parent?
The team parent typically facilitates communication between the league and the team. For instance, letting parents know the details of opening day, picture day, etc. They usually create a snack schedule for the younger teams, distribute pictures, and may organize collection for a team party/coach's gift at the end of season.
What is the $50 non-participant fee?
WTB functions based entirely on the volunteer efforts of everyone that participates in the program. There are many ways an individual can volunteer including coaching (head or assistant), being a team parent, or simply volunteering 2 hours to get the fields ready on field day or cover the snack stand. We offer the non-participant fee as an alternative to those volunteer options. Anyone who would like to get more involved with the program is encouraged to attend one of our general meetings or send an email to any of the board members on our contact page.
What else can you tell me about T-Ball? I'm not sure my child's ready for it.
WTB's T-Ball program is an extremely casual way to introduce kids to the game. Everyone bats and plays the field every inning. Games are shorter and parents are encouraged to get involved, including being on the field with the kids to help them out. T-Ball is all about having fun, trying to hit the ball, and hopefully by the end of the year, knowing which way to run around the bases. :)
What about the other divisions? When does (machine pitch, kid pitch, keeping score, etc) start?
If you are unable to find the answer you're looking for, please email the appropriate division coordinator.
Can I sponsor my child's team?
We are always looking for sponsors for our in-house teams. A sponsorship gets your company's name on the back of a team's t-shirts, a link on our web site, and a team plaque. For 2016, the cost of a sponsorship is $250 for one team, $400 for 2 teams and $500 or more for a Premier Sponsorship. Premier Sponsors will have a team uniform branded with the sponsor name and will have access to additional sponsorship opportunities. We will try to make every effort for sponsors to be able to sponsor their own child's team. Sometimes due to special requests and the number of sponsors in a given age group, it's not always possible.
What about special requests?
We do our best to accommodate requests to play with a certain friend or for a particular coach. Sometimes the number of requests for a coach or the number of friends (and friends of friends) makes it impossible to honor all of them. In addition, for leagues that have drafts, we are not always able to meet those requests. For non-draft divisions we do try to take into account the school a player attends to increase the chance they will play with kids they already know.
What types of payment do you accept?
The preferred method of registration is through our online system which will accept Visa and MasterCard. We are no longer able to accept checks via the online system.
How are refunds handled?
|100% refund during open registration|
|85% refund during late registration period until first practice|
|No refunds after first practice|
I'm interested in signing my daughter up. Are there many girls that play Warwick Township baseball?
We do typically have a number of girls in the league (usually at the younger ages). Girls are welcome to play at all ages and when possible, we try to structure our teams so your daughter would not be the "only girl on her team". As they get older, most of the girls tend to gravitate towards softball. Information about the Warrington Warwick Softball Organization is available on their website.
When are the games played?
During the season (early April through mid-June), teams play 1 game during the week and 1 game on Saturday. For an age group with an uneven number of teams, it is possible to have a week or weekend during the season with no game.
Where are the games played?
Most games are played on the six fields at the Guinea Lane complex. We will sometimes utilize the field at Hidden Pond for the younger age groups as well.
How long are the games?
All Little League games are 6 innings or two hours. T-Ball games are usually played for 60-90 minutes or until the ice cream man shows up. :)
What can you tell me about practices?
All teams will be given field time for 1 practice/week before the season. Due to games and field availability, it can be more difficult to get practices in during the season. The number and times of practices will depend on your team's coach.
When does the season start and end?
Opening Day for the Spring 2019 season will be April 6th. The playoffs will most likely coincide with the end of the school year.
How many games are there?
Most age groups play approximately 14 games during the season, plus the playoffs.
What equipment does my child need to be able to play?
Your registration provides for your child's hat, shirt, pants, and socks. Your child should have his or her own glove. And cleats are highly recommended. Many players like to have their own bat and batting helmet but that is not required. Each team will have a team equipment bag that will include batting helmets and catchers gear.
Are there tryouts?
There are no tryouts for in-house baseball. If your child chooses to play travel baseball, there is a scheduled tryout for each age group. Also, if you would like your child to "play up" an age group, they would need to be evaluated by the age group coordinator on an individual basis.
What is Travel baseball?
WTB participates in the Suburban Travel Baseball league with other area teams from Warrington, Northampton, Holland, Middletown, Morrisville, etc. The travel program, games, practices, etc are in addition to the normal WTB in-house program.
To play travel baseball your child must be registered for WTB by your child’s age appropriate try out date and attend the tryouts at ASBA as scheduled. Teams will be selected following the tryouts and indoor practices begin immediately. The number of travel teams Warwick offers is based on the number of players that try out and the availability of quality coaches. The Suburban Travel season runs approximately the same length as the WTB in-house season and games are played on Friday evenings and Sunday afternoons. Travel players will typically have 4 games (Fri/Sun travel; Sat/Wk Day in-house) and 2 practices (1 travel; 1 in-house) per week.
How do I sign up for Travel baseball?
There is no separate travel registration. If you would like your child to try out for one of the travel teams, they must be registered for Warwick Township Baseball and they may indicate their interest in trying out by answering "Yes" to the question on the registration site, "Is your child interested in playing travel baseball?"
What are the age ranges for Travel baseball?
The team that your child tries out for in Travel baseball is determined by your child's age on 8/31/2019. A list of the age ranges for Spring 2019 is available on our Travel page.
