2023 9U Registration Information


9U Intro and Advanced

The 9U program is designed to promote physical development of children through the game of baseball. The program helps develop physical literacy by using a modified game to teach the basic baseball skills to children and ensure success.

New!

In efforts to ensure our 9U athletes are participating with like skilled players, we have modified our 9U program to include 2 levels. We will be offering evaluations to 9U players that wish to play an advanced 9U program, and continue to offer our current 9U program, recognized as 9U intro, for players that are new to baseball or simply elect to play a less advanced program.

RDMBA supports the initiative to advance female baseball.  In efforts to do so, female athletes will have the option in the registration process to select whether they would prefer to play on an all female team, a co-ed team or don't have a specific preference.  All female teams will be created in each division should the registration numbers permit doing so. Female registrants are also permitted to remain in each division for 1 additional year as an overage player should they wish to do so.   

 


9U Intro

In the 9U intro program players will continue to focus on skills like throwing, catching and hitting. The beginning of each session will include practice with their team and the second half will be a game played against the other team sharing the field. 

 


 

9U Advanced

 

In the 9U Advanced program players will continue to learn the basic fundamentals of baseball (ie. catching, throwing, hitting and base running). Players will also be introduced to basic positional play as well as pitching. 

There will be some additional costs associated with the 9U advanced program and possibly some travel. A non-refundable evaluation fee of $20 will be included in the 9U advanced registration, if your team elects to enter a tournament there will be additional costs associated with that as well. Teams will most likely require parents to pay seed fees which cover all team related expenses, this amount will be set by the team. Should your player register and evaluate for the 9U advanced team and is not selected, they will automatically be reassigned to 9U intro, the difference in registration fee will be refunded minus the evaluation fee. 

 


 

Equipment Required

  • Either cleats or good running shoes (cleats are recommended as the shale gets quite dry and slippery as the season goes on)
  • A protective jock or jill
  • Long pants (joggers or track pants are ok, but baseball pants are recommended as they will last much longer)
  • A baseball glove
  • Noscae Approved batting helmet.
  • Should your player have their own bat they can use it, if not there are bats available for use in the equipment bag.
  • Your player will receive a shirt and a baseball hat as part of your already paid registration.
