If you are looking for more information about the J-Hawks Select Baseball program, you have come to the right place. The Jackson J-Hawks currently has teams at the U9, U10, U12, U13, & U14 levels. Most of the J-Hawk teams play in the M.A.J.O.R. YBL League, allowing the games to be fairly local for travel. For example, next weekend the U10 team plays in a Menomonee Falls tournament. If you would like to learn more about the teams and their schedules, click the links below.

Hey Parents -
Take a look at this awesome opportunity to get extra reps for your son. Just recently Paul Wagner sent me this flyer to distribute to the league. Please take a look at this flyer and sign up if you are interested. The camp takes place on June 17th & 18th in Waukesha. If you have questions, please let me know what I can help with.
2019 Milwaukee Brewers Little League night is almost here. Please join us for a fun night at Miller Park. We will be participating in this annual event for the 3rd year in a row. Last year we sold over 175 tickets and it was a blast ( a little wet) but still fun. This year we hope to sell even more tickets, the goal is 200 tickets. You are welcome to invite as many people as you would like to this event. In the past, many families invite grandparents, aunts and uncles, and cousins to this event because the cost of the tickets are reduced and its a great photo opportunity for the extended family.
This event is for all JAYBA & JHawks families.
If you are new to this event, all kids and coaches get to participate in an on-field pregame parade. Kids wearing their uniforms are able to walk as a group (JAYBA) along the warning track and in front of the dugouts. The event is a lot of fun, there are a ton of kids from all over the state participating. This event has been going on for over 30 years and it gets bigger every year. Because of the size of our group, we also have our league name on the jumbo screen during the parade. Parents need to plan to pay for parking on their own and arrive at the game no later than 5:45 pm to line up for the parade.
Ticket forms are due NOW. Please turn ticket forms and payment (check is preferred) but we can accept a credit card, to the Concession stand. We will order the tickets at the end of the month, so please get your form in ASAP. Ticket forms are available at the concession stand now.
Date: June 25th
Cost: $22 per ticket
Orders Due: May 30th
If you have questions, please let us know how we can help or what information you need.
The season is here, and we are ready to play!!! This week marks the start of JAYBA games at Town Hall and the surrounding communities. If you are new to JAYBA, we host games and concessions Monday - Thursday at Town Hall. Our concession stand starts grilling at 5:00 pm, hot food and concessions available soon after 5:00 pm. We have some new menu items this year including; whole pizza's, mozzarella stix and marinara, and bacon cheeseburgers. We have a large variety of beverages, snacks, and candy - all listed at very reasonable prices. We accept both cash and credit at the stand.
Volunteers - Please check the schedule and make sure you know when you are signed up to help at the concession stand. If you have questions, please email Jamie (email@example.com). We have added several concession shifts to the JAYBA Party on July 13th. If you have not signed up to volunteer and there aren't shifts still available, please talk to the coach about running the scoreboard or speak to Greg about joining the Board. All parents are required to volunteer for 6 hours. Board member kids play for FREE (raffle participation remains a requirement).
Coaches - Please arrive early to your games to make sure everything is ready to go. Umpires report at 5:30 pm, please make sure your umpire is there and ready to go, if you have issues, please email Greg (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please fill in batters boxes, pitching mounds, and other holes created during the game. If you have a rainout, please coordinate directly with the opposing coach to the game rescheduled, if your age level requires an umpire, please coordinate with Greg. It is a good idea to print a copy of the rules so that you have them on-hand during a game, and only the Head Coach should discuss questions with the Umpire.
Players - Please wear your complete uniform, including your hat, shirt, grey pants, and socks. Your shirt should be tucked in and clean, if possible. Please remove all trash and equipment from the bench area after each game. Do not yell or throw a fit on the fields, baseball and softball are a privilege, and poor sportsmanship is never tolerated. If you have issues or concerns with your uniform, please email Greg (email@example.com).
Parents - Please be respectful of the games being played. The players, coaches, and umpires have worked hard to get their teams organized, and the games are meant to be fun. Do not engage is yelling, profanity, or heckling of the umpires, players, or coaches. We want our community to be welcoming to other cities, and we want people to play here, please make everyone feel welcomed.
