Program Overview

Program Summary

Holt Junior Rams Baseball works closely with Delhi Township Parks and Recreations to provide opportunities for players of all skill levels to play baseball and to assist in building a strong foundation for Holt Junior Rams Baseball. Evaluations begin in mid- January and continue through March when final teams are formed. Players will be assigned to teams based on skill level and age.

This season, Holt Junior Rams Baseball will field teams from U8-U14. Each age bracket will play a minimum of 12 Pony League games. All teams are encouraged to play in tournaments (cost not included in program fees).

Registration & Cost

Registration is fast and simple using our online form at this site. Registration is required prior to player evaluations. Evaluations will be tentatively held in February 2020.

The cost of participating in the program for 2020 is $225 for U9-U14 and $150 for U8 to play on a basic Pony League team. These teams play 12 PONY league games, and an optional end of season tournament. At the coach and parents' discretion, additional tournaments may be added (and are highly encouraged). The cost of these additional tournaments is the responsibility of the parents.

A $25.00 family discount is extended to families with more than one player participating in the program. The registration fees are due the second week of April and can be mailed in or you can pay on-line with a credit or debit card.

Divisions

Age divisions are U8, U9, U10, U11, U12, U13, and U14. The age is determined by the player's age as of April 30th of the current season year for ages U11 and up. The age for under U11 play is determined by the player's age as of August 31st of the current season year. This age is set by the PONY sanctioning organization.

Coaches Selection

Volunteer coaches are selected per review of candidates by the Holt Jr Rams Baseball Board of Directors. Anyone interested in coaching should note such on the Player Registration form. Coaches are expected to sign a "Coach's Creed" that outlines expectations of the organization. Perspective coaches need to attend Holt Jr Rams Baseball coaching fundamentals and team development training. A background check is conducted on all coaches and assistant coaches for the safety of our children.
