What age group should my child play?
For Fall 2022 and Spring 2023:
Your child should play whatever age he will be on May 1st, 2023.
For example: If he is 7 right now, but will turn 8 before May 1st, therefore being 8 on May 1st, he should play 8U baseball. If he will still be 7 on May 1st. He should play 7U baseball.

I attended a CBA tryout and have not heard anything yet? What do I do?
Our CBA coaches typically try to form their teams quickly after the tryout. If you have not heard directly from a coach within two weeks of the tryout. I would suggest attending the next tryout or coach look.

These bats must be permanently stamped with the BBCOR.50 Certified Mark or made of wood and manufactured by a licensed USSSA manufacturer. Also, as the CBA does not restrict bat diameter, you advantage you son by purchasing a bat that is larger than 2 1/4 in diameter. TRAVEL TEAMS - these rules apply to the CBA recreational league only, bats restrictions will be dictated by the governing body of the venues you compete in. Please feel free to contact any board members with any bat questions you may have.
