Majors (11-12 years): $95

6. Which level should I sign my player up for?  
In general, sign your player up for the age level that they will be as of May 1, 2017.  Fall ball is intended, in part, to help prepare players who are moving up to the next level in the spring for the larger fields and higher level of play that comes with the next level up.  However, if you feel that your player is not quite ready for that level, it is also OK to keep them at the lower level for fall.  Per Cal Ripken/Babe Ruth league rules, though, they will have to play at the appropriate age level in the spring.
7. I still have more questions! 

Contact any member of the Baseball Committee for help!
8. How can I get more involved? 
GVAA Baseball is completely reliant on the efforts of parent volunteers. We encourage all players’ parents to consider volunteering in some capacity for our organization.  We ALWAYS need coaches.  We also currently have an opening on the committee for a Fundraising Coordinator, and are always seeking parent volunteers to help prep the fields or help out in small ways throughout the season. Please contact any member of the committee if you are interested in volunteering.
