Frequently Asked Questions

Yes.

How much does it cost?

The cost is $100 for TBall and $125 for coach pitch, minors, and the majors.

How is a player’s age determined?

A player’s age for a given season is based on their actual age on April 30 of this baseball season.

When are evaluations for Coach Pitch, Minors and Majors?

The evaluations typically occur during the third or fourth Sunday in February.  Evaluations should be attended by all players in Coach Pitch, Minors and Majors.  Evaluations allow us to determine the current skill level of players.  That information is used to help divide the teams as evenly as possible.

When does the season begin?

Expect practices to begin around the 1st week of March.

When do the games start?

Games will typically start during the last week of March.

When does the season end?

Regular season games will end near May 30th.  Please plan to attend closing ceremonies end of May/beginning of June.

How frequently are the practices?

Expect practices to be 1 night during the week and also on Saturdays.  Practice days and times vary depending on field and coaches availability.  Once games start, practices will stop.

Where do we play games?

All baseball games are currently played at Hidden Rock Park.  The address for Hidden Rock Park is 1920 Hidden Rock Lane, Maidens 23102.

How do parents receive communications?

Communications will be sent by text or email from the baseball commissioners, coaches, team moms, and/or GYAA communication director.

How are decisions made about field closures?

Goochland Parks and Recreation operates our playing fields.  Parks and Rec offers a text/email service for field closures updates.   They usually make their decision by 3pm on questionable weather days.   Please sign up at rainedout.com and search “Goochland” where you will find a link for Goochland Parks and Rec.  Please keep in mind sometimes these decisions are made last minute by Parks and Rec.  We appreciate your flexibility during these times.

**PLEASE always wait for communication from your coach.   If it is not actively storming coaches may choose to have practices in grassy areas or batting cages.

What equipment does my son need to play?

Your son will need a glove to participate in any level of baseball.  Please be sure it is sized appropriately for your son to play.  Boys should wear a protective cup at all practices and games.

Baseball pants will need to be purchased for games.  GYAA provides uniform shirts, belts, socks, balls, catchers gear, batting helmets for use during practices and games.

(Recommended/Optional equipment: Cleats, personal batting helmet w/face guard and chin strap).

There is typically a Dick’s Sporting Goods day (happens on a Saturday) for all of the counties in February which offers a 20% discount for all items purchased that are mentioned above during this one day.
