Tumwater Youth Baseball - Spring League

Tumwater Parks & Recreation’s spring baseball league is open to boys and girls, grades K-5. Out of district players are accepted; however, they will be placed on a wait list and added to teams needing players. The season runs early March thru mid May. This league offers three divisions of play for grades Kindergarten/First grade (K/1), Second/Third (2/3) grades, and Fourth/Fifth (4/5) grades.

Registration

Registration for the 2020 Tumwater Baseball season opens on Thursday, January 2, 2020 and closes on February 21, 2020. The season runs early March thru mid May. Registration fee of $90 includes shirt, pants, and hat. Registrations after February 21 will be assessed a $10 non-refundable late fee and added to teams needing players.

Scholarships:  

A limited number of scholarships are available to those who are eligible. Required forms and 50% of the fee must be submitted by Friday, February 7 to be considered. Call (360) 754-4160 for more information.

Uniforms & Play 

All players are outfitted with uniforms (shirt, pants, and hat). Uniforms are available for sizing at registration. Teams practice two times per week, typically weeknights, with the possibility of Saturdays, beginning in early March. Games begin in early April (typically the week after Spring Break.)

K/1st division is coach pitch for the entire season. 2nd/3rd division begins with coach pitch and progresses to kid pitch. This format significantly increases the hitter’s opportunity to put the ball in play resulting in more defensive opportunities which is fun and exciting for everyone! 4th/5th division will be kid pitch only. 

Volunteer Coaches

The Tumwater Baseball league cannot operate without volunteer involvement. Parents and interested community members are invited to get involved as a coach and create a positive experience for the youth of this community. Volunteer coaches are needed so we encourage you to contact Tumwater Parks & Recreation today to receive an informational coach’s packet (or download below). League registration and coach’s packets are available in the Parks and Recreation office and online beginning in January.
