When will practices start?: Practices will start on April 1st. Your coach will inform you of your practice times/days. Practices are held twice a week (one weekday and once on the weekend). Teams will not practice during the week once games start. Practices will be held at Allendale & Chestnut and Hitt Park. Keep in mind if Coaches have access to other baseball fields in surrounding areas, your practice MAY NOT be in Greenwood. (Coach's Discretion)

Can I request to be on a certain team?: We will do our best to accommodate requests, but we will also make sure that the players are placed to ensure a competitive balance in our leagues.

I would like our two kids to be able to play on the same team, but they are different ages. Can I get them on the same team?  A younger player may play up a grade level. An older player may not play down a grade.

When do games begin?  Games will start on April 29th. 

Where can I find schedules?: All schedules can be found under “Sports” at www.greenwoodmoparks.com. They are typically posted a few weeks before the start of games.

I have signed my child up to play. What team are they on?  Children are placed by the draft and parent request. Not every child will end up on their requested team. We do our best to meet all request. In every division, your coach will contact you with team placement. The placement of children on teams doesn’t happen until The Coaches Mandatory Meeting. Coaches will be in contact with parents after this date.  

We cannot practice on a certain night a week. Can I get on a team that doesn't practice that night?   We don’t set the schedule until teams are formed. There is no set schedule for divisions practicing on a certain night. Generally speaking, the coaches request a few nights they are available and we accommodate the best we can. Each team is given one weeknight and one weekend practice time. If you cannot make a practice night, work that out with your coach.

How much does it cost to play?   All pricing is on the registration page.

There seem to be fields sitting empty when a team could be practicing. Why is that? Teams are not scheduled to practice during the week once games start. However, your coach can check the field schedule and see if there are any openings and he/she can contact Brad Beeler, Sports Director to schedule practice time. It will be first come, first serve.

What color is my team?  The colors for the teams are the last thing that is decided. Until the teams are set and a few other things are worked out no one knows what color the team will be. Your coach will let you know as soon as he is told.

My child is on a competitive team, can they also play in the recreational league?   No child can play on a competitive team and play in this recreational league.

I want to coach/manage my child's team what do I do?   If you haven’t signed your child up yet please indicate, during the registration process, that you would like to either manage or coach a team. If you have already registered contact Brad Beeler, the Sports Director. This information is available on the Contact Info page. There is a process behind approving coaches. Year over year the number of coaches is different for each division. It all depends on the number of kids in each division. Once the process is complete your league rep will let you know if you are allowed to coach. After approval, all coaches and managers need to pass a background check. Background Checks are $14, and should be paid at the time of registration to be considered.
