Why Register Now?
With hundreds of players and coaches, long term planning is essential for a successful baseball season. Registering early helps the volunteers behind Topsfield Baseball make it all happen - from purchasing of equipment and uniforms, reserving the limited field space we have in town, and organizing baseball schedules across the five leagues and three towns. Getting a head start with respect to the number of players each year really helps in the planning process and late sign ups often create logistical issues in setting up the number of teams, numbers of players per team, etc. That's why we encourage everyone to sign up as early as possible during the registration period and avoid the late fee.
Also, If you register by March 15th each year all eligible players will have the fee waived for our annual winter training sessions.
Age / Eligibility
To be eligible for Topsfield Little League baseball boys and girls must be at least 5 years old but no older than 12 years of age on 8/31/21. There are no exceptions. "Little League age" can be determined here https://www.littleleague.org/play-little-league/determine-league-age/
Volunteers and coaches are always needed. At the youngest ages, Baseball skill and expertise is NOT a prerequisite... and an ideal Kindergarten, 1st or 2nd grade coaching team has one or two parents managing the dugout. Get involved! Simply helping the kids keep track of batting order and their hats and gloves between inning enables far more baseball learning and fun. Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org or talk to your child's head coach to get started.
What Does The Registration Fee Cover?
The registration fee includes: The Annual Little League of America Charter, the replacement of old equipment, new uniforms & hats, umpires (Minors and Majors), and the annual Parks and Cemetery fee for field maintenance. Please note that a $50 late fee will be assessed on March 15th.
