***Ages are as of 5/01/2018***


Clarksburg will work with families on an case-by-case basis to make the best placement for each player based on a combination of age, skills, and experience. For example, we would recommend an 8-year old player new to baseball start in Machine Pitch for a season before progressing on to Player Pitch. If a player wants to play up a level, they will be subject to a skills assessment.


Playing up requires previous playing experience with Clarksburg Baseball at the age-appropriate level:

- Players seeking to play up to 6U Baseball must have at least one season of playing experience with Clarksburg Baseball in 4U  

- Players seeking to play up to 8U Baseball must have at least two seasons of playing experience with Clarksburg Baseball in 6U

- Players seeking to play up to 10U Baseball must have at least two seasons of playing experience with Clarksburg Baseball in 8U

- Players seeking to play up to 12U Baseball must have at least two seasons of playing experience with Clarksburg Baseball in 10U

- Players seeking to play up to 13U Baseball must have at least two seasons of playing experience with Clarksburg Baseball in 12U


PLACEMENT POLICY:

Clarksburg Baseball makes every reasonable effort to place players on the team of their choice, as requested in the Coach and Player Preferences sections of the registration record. Clarksburg Baseball is also committed to being fair and objective in the assignment of players to teams. In the event that the number of requests for a particular Coach and/or Player exceeds the maximum allowable team size, requesting players will be assigned to that team in order of registration, as specified by the Registration Date in the registration record, up to the maximum team size. The remaining registrants not assigned to that team will be assigned at random to another team within the same age bracket. The exceptions to this placement rule are any children of the Head Coach or Co-Coaches (up to two) seeking assignment on that team, who will be afforded top placement priority or if the child played for the time the following season they will get priority, regardless of Registration Date.


VOLUNTEER BOND:
As a community organization, all activities necessary to run Clarksburg Baseball are accomplished by volunteers. As in all volunteer organizations, the key to Clarksburg Baseball's continued success and growth is to spread the load among a large corps of volunteers. In order to avoid the inequity of having a small group of volunteers accomplishing all of the needed activities for our organization, Clarksburg Baseball has established a $25 "Volunteer Bond" payable at time of registration. This fully refundable bond is a "Pay It Forward" promise of your understanding and willingness to volunteer two hours of your time each season to help Clarksburg Baseball achieve its mission. The two hours of volunteer hours must be on the approved volunteer duty list which is on our website and must be approved by the League Volunteer Coordinator. As soon as you complete your two hours of volunteering during a season, your Volunteer Bond will be refunded by check and delivered to your coach to distribute. Please allow 3-4 weeks after volunteering for us to process your check. Examples of volunteering include staffing the spirit wear sales table on game day, helping with sorting and distributing uniforms, helping photographers on photo day, putting out signs for registration, etc. Please call the volunteer coordinator, Alan Friedman (240-678-7701), with any questions or concerns.


VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES:

Head Coach:  Teaching skills and completing the administrative aspects of a team such as making the line-up. Serving as a role model for both players and parents. No prior experience needed, as we provide training.

Co-Coach:  Teaching and administering a team with 2 coaches splitting the functions of a head coach. Serving as role models for both players and parents. No prior experience needed, as CBI will train you.

Assistant Coach:  Assisting the head coach with practices and games in teaching the skills necessary to make progress. Serving as role models for both players and parents.  No prior experience needed, as CBI will train you.

Team Manager: Does not involve any “on field” activities. Team manager is responsible for season-long administrative and logistical responsibilities such as: team snap updates, rescheduling games, securing a field for postponed games, and taking the lead on logistics for the end of season party. Team managers can expect other roles, which lighten the administrative plate for the head coach throughout the season.***While greatly appreciated, simply organizing the weekly team snack schedule, “team mom” does not qualify for the volunteer bond whereas team manager does qualify.***

Team Courier:  Does not involve any “on field” activities. Team Courier is responsible for season-long duties including: picking up uniforms, volunteer bond checks, photos, spirit wear, and trophies for their team. ALL pickups will be in the local Clarksburg area. (6 times/season)
