2018 Spring Registration Officially Open

Written by

The 2018 Spring Baseball and Softball registration is officially open. We know it is a little early to be thinking about baseball with the Christmas Holidays upon us but we hope you will take a moment to register your player before the New Year.

For those of you who were not involved with our Fall Ball season, we had a great time and a great turnout. We had nearly 80 kids play with us this Fall that did not play last Fall. That bodes well for a solid turnout for our Spring season.

Here are a couple updates to keep in mind:

Tentative Spring Schedule - Our tentative Spring schedule is posted to www.chairesll.com. We have included tentative dates for the entire season. Please review them and add them to your family calendar.

Registration Link - Here is a link to the SI registration site: http://chairesll.siplay.com. When registering, you can bypass the need for three proofs of residency by using the school verification form. If you player's school is in the Chaires League boundry, this form can be filled out by thier school and becomes a permanent proof of residency and does not have to be filled out again.

Softball - We will be registering girls for softball this Spring. We held a clinic this Fall for girls interested in playing at Chaires this Spring. It was well attended and we intend on holding pitching, hitting and catching clinics in January and February. If you know anyone who is interested in playing girl’s softball at Chaires, please let them know that registration is open. We need everyones help to make this division successful.

Senior Division - We are also forming Chaires Senior Division teams this Spring. If you are interested in playing, games will likely be played at Fred George Park since our big field won’t be ready to play until Spring of 2019. This division is for ages 13-16.

Sponsorship - We would like to thank our first sponsors of the 2018 Season:

NicksCW RobertsPun

If you are interested in sponsoring a team or a banner or know someone who does, please use this link to select your sponsorship level and pay. Team sponsorships will be assigned on a first come first serve basis. Please download our sponsorship flyer for additional information.

2017 Fall Ball Registration is Now Open

Written by

Good Morning. Registration for our 2017 Fall Ball season is now open. You can register your players now through August 31.

chairesll.siplay.com/site/

If you have never played at Chaires before, once you click the link above, you will see a green login button in the upper right corner of the page. Click that button and then click the create account link. The registration process will follow from there.

We will be fielding baseball teams in our Machine Pitch (ages 6-8), Minors (ages 9-10) and Majors (ages 11-12) divisions.

We will not be registering softball players this Fall. However, we are excited to announce that we are working with several coaches and fully expect to field softball teams in Spring of 2018. To that end, we will be holding several softball workshops this Fall, dates to be determined. They will focus on hitting, pitching and fielding. Once we have finalized the details, we will alert you via email and post on Facebook.

If you are interested in Tee Ball, we will have a Tee Ball division in the Spring

Cost: The cost for all players will be $50.

Coaches: If you would like to be a manager or an assistant coach this season, you will have an opportunity to choose that option on the registration form. If you have any questions about coaching, please let us know.

School Verification Form: If your player goes to a school that is located in the Chaires-Capitola Little League boundaries, you can use the school verification form instead of providing the three forms of address verification every year. You will only need to submit the form once. Simply print the form accessible via this link and take it to your player’s school. Once they complete it, you can load it to the SI registration system and we will have a permanent archive of it.

If you submitted a school verification form or a birth certificate in the past and do not want to have to load it every season, simply state that you have already uploaded the forms in the comments section of the registration forms.

Evaluations: All players are required to sign up for an evaluation time. This is not a tryout. Our coaches will evaluate each play and then a draft will be held to build the teams. Every player will be placed on a team.

Jersey Numbers: During registration, you will be asked to include three number options for your player’s jersey. Please be sure to include that information or we will have to assign your player a number.

Additional Information and Tentative Dates
Registration 8/1 - 8/31
MP Evaluations Monday 9/4, 6:00-8:00
Minors/Majors Evaluations Tuesday 9/5, 6:00-8:30
Practices begin Saturday 9/9

2016 Spring Evaluations

Written by

We wanted to give you an update on our progress with the 2016 Spring Season. This year we will have 3 Machine Pitch teams and 6 Baseball Division teams, which is a combined Majors and Minors Division.

We have selected the 2016 SPring Coaches and they are as follows:

TeeBall

  • Taylor Beech
  • Jeff Cornish
  • Kevin Corradi
  • Mike Glantz
  • John Wiley
  • Jason Zaborske

Machine Pitch

  • Russ Clark
  • Ross Decker
  • Bill Garber
  • Elkahn Gray
  • Allan Malone
  • Joey Matthews

Minor Baseball

  • Anthony Allbaugh
  • Peter Fisher
  • David Gregg
  • Daniel Jeffers
  • C. Mantzanas
  • Chad Pursell
  • Billy Strickland
  • Keith Wemm

Major Baseball

  • John Bentley
  • Mike Glantz
  • Danny O’Donnell
  • Eric Shugart

If you requested to manage a team this Spring, you will still have an opportunity to be an assistant coach once the draft is done and your child has been placed on a team. Please let your Manager know when they contact you after the draft.

Machine Pitch evaluations will take place on January 23 from 9am-Noon. Minor and Major Baseball divisions will take place January 23 from 1pm-5pm. Please arrive early so we can start on time.

Players should come to evaluations with their glove and cleats. They should also bring a bat if they have one. When players arrive for their assigned evaluation time, they will be given a number to put on their shirts. That number will correspond to the number on the player list.

Each player will be evaluated on their ability to:

  • Catch fly balls and throw to second base - 5 fly balls
  • Field grounders in the infield and throw to first base - 5 ground balls
  • Hit - 5 pitches

Each coach will evaluate players and prepare their selections for the draft. 

The draft will run as follows:

  • Coaches will draw a draft order from a hat and the draft will be conducted in a snake format.
  • Each Manager will automatically have his own child placed on their team. They will then proceed to pick players until all players who evaluated are chosen. 
  • If a Manager has more than one child or has selected one Assistant Coach, those children will be assigned to the team in leu of the Manager's third, forth, etc. picks. 
  • Names of all players who did not attend the draft will be separated by age and placed in a hat.  The Managers will pull a name out of the hat until all non-evaluated players are placed on a team.

The draft will take place on January 27 at the Chaires Community Center and teams will be announced that night via email and the website.

Practices will begin on February 1. Opening day will be February 27.
