Spring Practices

Practices are scheduled at the discretion of the head coach and teams are encouraged to start practicing based on their division.

  • Minor A and Up can begin practices as early as the week before Spring Break pending indoor availability.
  • Minor B will start once field day is complete and the fields are ready, usually second week of April.

From the Calendar page you have full visibility as to what practices and games are scheduled for all teams.

Indoor Practices

All practices prior to our field day are held indoors pending facility availability. Here is a link to the available time slots for the indoor practices.

Google Sheet

Please review and e-mail me with the date/time and location you would like to practice. I will make sure to give each team at least one of their preferred time slots per week prior to assigning a second.

Outdoor Practices

Teams can begin practicing outdoors after our field day on the first weekend in April. We are using fields 1 and 2 at Lion's. These are the far North field by Bob Jass and the middle field by the playground.

Lion’s Park has plenty of space so more than one team can practice at a given field and teams can take turns using the infield for practice.

A few important notes about field availability for practices:

  1. Scheduled games have priority over practices, so please review the game schedule prior to scheduling a practice with your team.
  2. Starting in June both Field 1 and 2 will not be available on Friday nights as co-ed softball is using them.


Coaches should use the the calendar feature on your team page to schedule practices. All the blackout dates and game are in the system and you will see if a field is not available during that time for practice.

Each field has a field box has a set of bases along with a batting tee with a combination lock, you should have the code if not please contact Matt Fleshman for the code.

You are free to use them for your practice just be sure to lock everything up at the end of practice, also please rake the batters box and pitchers mound areas with the field rake if you used them during your practice.

Also you are not restricted to practicing at Lion's Park, you can practice at other fields but please keep in mind that we do not have priority and other leagues like Elburn Baseball have priority over us for those fields

Field Usage Rules

Please follow these rules when using the fields for practice.

  1. We have limited space and two teams can practice on each field, please share the space we have.
  2. DO NOT practice on the infields if they are muddy or in no condition due to weather. We use these fields for games as well and it makes it harder to set them up.
  3. You are free to use the bases and equipment in the field box for your practice, just please remember to lock them up after practice.
  4. Rake the home plate and pitching mound areas after your practice if you used them, this helps the next team that may practice or for setting up the fields for the next game.
  5. Make sure you and your team clean-up after your selves. We do not own these fields and other organizations use them. BE RESPECTFUL.
