How long is the season?

Our Fall ball season typically runs from the 2nd week of September through late October.  
Our Spring ball season usually starts in mid-April and ends in early June.  Following this regular season, certain divisions will participate in playoffs.  Howell South LL also participates in several All Star tournaments after the Spring season.  This can last far into the Summer depending on how the team does.

How many games will my child play?

During Fall ball, games are normally held 1-2 times a week as well as Sundays.  Team practices are scheduled by each team's coach.

During Spring ball, games are normally 1-2 times a week as well as Saturdays.  Team practices are scheduled by each team's coach.

Does my child need his/her own equipment?

Yes, we encourage each player to have his/her own equipment.  This would typically include a division approved bat, helmet and glove.  Although we do provide some equipment (i.e. catchers gear), we do suggest players use their own items for hygiene purposes.

Is there a requirement of what my child needs to wear?

When you register your child, he/she will be provided a shirt and hat.  We also encourage players to wear baseball pants, cleats and very importantly a heart guard and cup as appropriate.

Do I have to volunteer?

During the registration process, you will be advised of your volunteer options.  Typically Howell South LL encourages all families to volunteer one shift at the snack stand or assist with field maintenance days.  However, we do understand that schedules are busy so we do offer and "opt out" option.

I want to help coach my child's team!

Great!  Howell South LL encourages all parents/grandparents, etc to get involved and we would love to have you coach.  Please see our forms page in order to complete the necessary player safety paperwork to become an approved coach!
