|About the T-Ball Program
|A coed T-ball League will be offered this summer. Playing rules are kid-friendly, ensuring the all registered players get to play. Emphasis is placed on learning fundamental skills and having fun. The unique feature of this game involves batters putting the ball in play by hitting it off a tee.
Each team plays one game a week, on either Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday night. Game times are 6:15pm. Please note that all T-ball teams will play their opening day games on Saturday, June 15.
The emphasis of this program is on participation and enjoyment.
EVERYONE GETS TO PLAY!
Every child plays as there are no tryouts or cuts.
T-ball is open to boys and girls who are in kindergarten in the 2012-2013 school year.
If you have questions regarding the T-ball program please contact Seth at Rec & Ed, 734-994-2300, ext. 53225 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

|Team Formation(back to top)
|Participants are assigned to school teams based on their public school attendance areas. Consult our registration timeline and procedures chart for detailed registration placement information.
Team rosters are limited to sixteen (16) players per team unless a team's coach requests more or fewer players for his or her team:
Players will be notified of their team assignment via phone from the head coach. Players who have not heard from a coach by May 28 should contact Rec&Ed office at 734-994-2300 ext. 53225.
If two teams are formed for the same grade from the same school, coaches and Rec&Ed staff will assign players to teams in accordance with departmental guidelines to ensure equally-balanced teams.
It is not rare for “combo” teams, or teams with participants from two or more different schools to be formed. If your child’s school has filled its primary team roster, a combo team will be formed. Players whose registrations are received during the priority registration period are place on the primary school team first.
In the case of limited space, participants may be assigned to teams with participants from different attendance areas.
Charter, Parochial, Private, and Out-of-District Public Schools
If you have any special requests you would like us to consider, for example, to have your child assigned with a specific coach or teammate, you must fill out the Special Request question when registering online or on the registration form. We regret that we cannot guarantee special requests placed after the priority registration period.
Charter, parochial, private, and out-of-district public school teams can be formed if all grade requirements standards are satisfied and registration deadlines met. Registration must be open for all students that attend these schools. We require a minimum of nine players be registered for a team to be formed.
