Coach's Players

REGISTRATION OPENS: Thursday, November 9, 2023 (9:00pm)

Registered and approved coaches are invited to register their child/children for the 2024 House Baseball and/or Softball season.  If a coach has not cleared the application & background check process, he/she will not be eligible to register during this time.


Returning Players

REGISTRATION OPENS: Saturday, November 18, 2023 (12:00am)
REGISTRATION CLOSES: Sunday, December 10, 2023 (9:00pm)

Early online registration for Summer 2023 season returning players. Space is limited and will fill up quickly. Therefore, early registration is first-come, first-served.

Returning players are considered as any player who was on a HPBA house baseball, HPBA house softball or HPBA travel team roster at the end of the 2023 Summer season. Players who left the league or only played HPBA Fall Ball are not considered returning players. Furthermore, any family with an outstanding balance owed for 2023 must get this resolved before they will be eligible to register for the 2024 season.

Returning players that are invited to participate in early registration are not guaranteed a spot in the upcoming season. There are a limited number of openings in each division and the number of returning players eligible in each division may actually exceed the number of openings available in that division. Per Chicago Park District guidelines, HPBA must also provide the opportunity for new players to join the league via the lottery process. Once these spots are filled on a per division basis, all subsequent registrants will be placed on the wait list and required to enter the league via the New Player Lottery guidelines. 



Siblings of Returning Players

REGISTRATION OPENS: Saturday, December 2, 2023 (12:00am)
REGISTRATION CLOSES: Sunday, December 10, 2023 (9:00pm) 

Siblings of returning players may register for any remaining 2024 spots in our Rookie, Pee Wee, Bantam, Midget and Liberty Baseball Divisions, as well as the Softball Divisions.

These programs have many returning players who will have the first opportunity to register and siblings of returning players get the secondary opportunity to claim any available spots. Any siblings who do not secure an open spot will be placed on the wait list and must try to get a remaining spot in the new player lottery process.  No spots are guaranteed.


New Player Lottery Sign-Up

SIGN-UP OPENS: Monday, December 11, 2023 Wednesday, December 13, 2023 - 9:00am
SIGN-UP CLOSES: Sunday, January 7, 2024
