REGISTERING YOUR TEAM
HPBA Fall Ball is “full team” registrations only - no individual player sign-ups. It is the responsibility of each coach to field their team as HBPA association will not roster a team for you. Rosters must have a minimum of 12 players and a maximum of 15. Team registration fee is $1,000 and should be paid when registering your team. All confirmed Fall Ball players who were not registered as HPBA players for the summer 2021 season will be asked to complete a registration process.
Currently we are only accepting registrations from Hamlin Park coaches. If any of the 8 slots are not filled by July 31, we will open it up to non-Hamlin Park teams. Once all 8 spots are filled for a particular division, registration will close for that division.
Any players or teams who desire to “play up” in the higher aged division should reach out to the Fall Ball Director ahead of time with any questions.
It is the responsibility of each coach to obtain uniforms and hats for their team. Players can use the pants they wore for this past season.
During fall ball we will still adhere to all Park District COVID guidelines.
