Mission
The goal of the Demarest baseball and softball program is to help aspiring young softball athletes learn a sport they can enjoy for a lifetime in a positive, safe, and supportive environment.
Rules and Expectations 

In order to assure your child's best experience in our programs, you must review the complete Rules, Objectives, and Expectations of the Tri-Town Baseball and Softball Programs.

Seasons

Recreational: April-June

Travel: April-June; additional late summer travel baseball may be available

Annual Signup

Late Winter 

 

Each year, we ask all parents to register on time, as we are having increasing problems with selecting teams and ordering equipment and uniforms with all of the late sign-ups. Please note that requests for placement of children 

on specific teams are not possible. Due to the large number of children registering, children will play on the teams that they are chosen for. Please understand this policy prior to registering, and make your decisions on your child's participation prior to registration day.

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT SPRING TRAVEL TEAMS & REC TEAM PARTICIPATION/ATTENDANCE:

Any child wishing to play on the tri-town-sponsored SPRING TRAVEL teams MUST be registered and play Recreation Baseball/Softball. Travel players must make every effort to attend all their scheduled Rec games and team practices. Travel players will be subject to minimum required games played at the rec level (at least 70 percent participation) in order to maintain their eligibility to play on a Tri-town travel team. Abuse of this rule may result player being suspended from playing on travel team or dismissal from team for more flagrant violators.

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT SUMMER TRAVEL TEAMS:
