UPDATE!

As of August 23 our Juniors programs are full. We will take registrations for a waiting list spot. 

 

Hello Tempe South families!

 

With the kids back in school, I want to make sure you're aware of the baseball options with Tempe South this fall.  For our 3rd year, we are providing a fun way to keep the kids playing ball in Tempe.  And with the addition of Bloomquist Field, we get to have these games and clinics in South Tempe!!

 

For the fall, we have a limited number of player spots available.  Please don't wait till the last minute to register!

 

Here's the overview and key details.  A simplified age chart is at the bottom of the email.

 

For ages 9-10-11-12, registration is now open.  Fees are $100/player.  We will have 5-8 teams in both Minors and Majors divisions.  

  • Teams are announced on 9/21. 
  • Practices start 9/24 and games run from 10/17 through 12/7.  
  • Teams will have 1 midweek practice, an optional Saturday practice and 1 Friday night game per week.  We expect that players will be involved in other sports and activities, so coaches are advised to plan for less than perfect attendance.  Depending on the number of teams, we might add the occasional Wednesday night game as well.

Games and practices will be at Bloomquist Field (TSC), Mantei Field (Broadway & Hardy) or Gonzo Field (Rio Salado & Mill).  Some games will be at Stottlemyre Field (Baseline & Priest) with our partners at Tempe Guadalupe Little League.

 

 

For ages 13 & 14, registration is now open.  We have one complete team and hope to have enough interest to field a second.  Players in this division will compete in a fall season against other local little leagues.  Games are played in Chandler, usually at Kyrene Rd. & the 202.  Practices will start in the next 2 weeks.  

  • Estimated schedule:  15 games per team.  Games on Mon/Thurs/Sat.  Seasons starts around 9/15, ends the week before Thanksgiving.  Usually have 2 games per week.

 

Ages 5-8:  Free clinics will be at Bloomquist Field on Thursday nights, October 18 & 25, November 1 & 8.  No advance registration is needed.  Start times will be announced on tempesouth.com in early October.

 

What division should you register for?

  • Born on or after 9/1/2010 = league age 8 or younger.  Free clinics
  • Born between 9/1/2008 - 8/31/2010 = league age 9 & 10.  Minors division (introductory kid pitch).  
  • Born between 9/1/2006 - 8/31/2008 = league age 11 & 12.  Majors division.  All players ages 11 & 12 will be placed in fall Majors division.  This will give them a chance to play with players their age and gauge their readiness for this division in the more competitive spring season.  Requests to play "down" in Minors will not be considered for the fall.
  • Born between 9/1/2004 - 8/31/2006 = league 13 & 14.  Juniors division.  Full 90' bases, prepare for middle school distances.  Requests to play "down" in Majors division will not be considered for the fall.
