Happy Friday! Congratulations, we have all almost made it through the work week and the weekend is in sight, I can't wait! I wanted to take a moment and give everyone a little insight into how our league works and what to expect during the 2019 Season.
As this message goes out, we are in the middle of our Registration period and things are going well. We currently have 68 families registered for our program, last year we ended the season with 110 families, in my view we are trending in the right direction and should have similar to 2018 numbers for registration. We expect more families to sign up and are hopeful we will hit our registration goals. Please share this message with your friends and neighbors, it will help us immensely.
Right now we are in need of girls for our Rookies program. The Rookie Girls program is set up for an awesome season, but we need more girls to fill the team. Please tell your friends and neighbors to sign up today. To give you an idea of the age group, this division is comprised of girls in grades 1st-3rd grade, we have no boundary limitations.
Our Junior girls program can use more girls as well. These girls are in grades 4th - 5th and this is the first opportunity for the girls to learn how to pitch. We will have programs and resources to help teach the girls how to pitch and grow their softball skills, I personally know a couple of the coaches and I can tell you know, they are top-notch and will do a great job in 2019.

Hey Parents -
Happy Snow Day. We will be participating, rain or shine, in the 2019 Milwaukee Brewers Little League Night.

Last year we sold over 175 tickets, hopefully, this year we can get over 200 tickets to this event. I will post the form as soon as I have it.
Happy Hump Day!!! Our store is now open!!!! We have some great new options for the latest JAYBA gear. We have opened the store now so that you can take advantage of the gear throughout the season. Orders ship in about 12-14 business days, once the store closes. We will keep the store open through March 31st. Please take a look at let us know if you would like something else, and we will try to make it happen.
The winter is here and the new year is upon us. We are just days away from opening our 2019 Baseball, Softball, and TBall registration. Registration begins January 1st, 2019. We hope you will join us in 2019.
We are busy planning away for 2019. We have plans to improve all aspects of the league in 2019. During the offseason, we have made drastic improvements in our playing surfaces. We have had all the weeds pulled and the grass edges, on all our diamonds, has been cut back and groomed, plus we have had the baseball diamonds leveled. We are also looking to make improvements to our scoreboard operations and electrical outlets on Fields 3 & 4. Lastly, we are in the process of purchasing some additional equipment to help keep the fields groomed. We hope these improvements will make playing at Town Hall Fields even more enjoyable.
We hope to improve other features of our league as well. We are looking to establish a regular & consistent schedule for both the Girls & Boys programs; making it easier for parents to plan and prepare for the weeks ahead. Also, we have created two different groups for TBall. We will have two options for parents.
1. TBall (ages 4-5) will provide an opportunity for first-time players to try baseball. Core skills such as throwing, catching, and hitting will be the focus for this age group. The team sizes will remain small to offer a better opportunity for support and instruction from our coaches.
2. Coach Pitch TBall (ages 5-7) will be closer to what things were like in the year previous. Coaches will pitch to the players and if they are unable to hit, we will use the Tee. Coach Pitch will also encourage the kids to take skills to the next level and help them prepare for Rookies Baseball & Rookies Softball.
Hopefully, this information is helpful, and it will answer any questions you may have about registration. If you have questions, please feel free to email me anytime. Lastly, don't forget about our OffSeason Skills Camp. Registration is closing soon.
3. Now offering AA Boys. Back by popular demand, we will be offering AA Boys. This age group is for kids ages 11, 12, & 13 years old. This team has NOT been filled in the past, therefore, please sign up but you will be waitlisted until the team is full. You do not need to pay until you know if the team is full or not.
Registration is now open. We are actively seeking youth athletes to participate in our program. We have baseball, softball, and Tee Ball for all ages and all skill sets. We want to add more teams in 2019, last year we had 13 Teams, and everything went great, this year we want to have more teams to continue growing our program.
When you are considering a league to join, before you sign up, think about the benefits. JAYBA plays all home games at Town Hall Fields. THF has fantastic concessions, and all games are centered around our pavilion and located close to a HUGE jungle gym and park. Our rates are low, lower than most other communities such as West Bend.
West Bend Little League - Rookie Girls & Boys is $100
Richfield Youth Baseball - T-Ball is $75, Rookies is $75
As you can see, we are doing everything we can to keep our rates low and our facilities in top-notch shape. Register your son or daughter today and join us in 2019. Email me if you have any questions about our program.
