* Registrations May 1st – May 15th will be placed on a wait list and only will be added to teams as space becomes available.
Registration is open for 6 year olds (generally speaking, those just finishing Kindergarten) who reside in the Worthington School District or attend a private school within the Worthington School District.
All Children who will turn 6 before May 15th are invited to join this fun league! Children under 6 year olds are encouraged to play in the Tee Ball league. Some older/larger/experienced 5 year olds, as well as some younger/smaller/inexperienced 7 year olds, may be accepted into the league on a case by case basis.
Girls are welcomed to play WYB CP Rookies, however WYB has a separate softball program. See www.WorthingtonSoftball.org for more information.
Teams & Coaches
Teams will be formed immediately after the registration deadline. We try to form teams based on Elementary School attended (or scheduled to attend). We make every attempt to honor any special requests.
We have a particularly high need for coaches at this level as we prefer to have smaller rosters to give the young players more action and attention. Schools/neighborhoods without a coaching volunteer will likely have to be dispersed among other teams and won't be able to be kept together.
Practices and Games
Practices will start during mid May. Games will start the end of May and run thru early July. Teams will typically have 3 events each week.
Practices/Games during the week typically start around 6:00 (potentially as early as 5:30) and last for around an hour. There is typically a game each Saturday morning or early afternoon. Sundays and Fridays are used more makeups or supplemental practices.
Games are typically played at McCord Park. Practices are usually at either McCord Park or one of the various elementary school fields around town.
The schedule will not be finalized until registration has closed, and teams have been formed.
See the Uniforms page for information regarding where to obtain league uniforms.
Parents are responsible for buying baseball pants. Baseball pants are not required and many kids wear shorts, although protection for sliding would be recommended. Kids may wear tennis shoes or rubber baseball/soccer cleats.
Each player will need his own glove. WYB does not supply baseball bats, however bats are quite often shared among teams if your player does not own one. Please consult this sizing guideline for gloves and bats.
