Hutchinson Junior League Baseball Association

Interest Form for 8-Year-Old Players

The HJLBA Board has received a number of emails from parents of boys who will be in third grade during the 2024-2025 school year, encouraging the association to consider alternatives to Tiger Ball.  These requests have increased since the Park and Rec brochure was distributed and parents made aware that Tiger Ball is only planned to be one day per week this summer.  The Crow River League (the league that HJLBA participates in) doesn't currently have options for this age.  However, the HJLBA Board is committed to exploring opportunities to better prepare younger players for participating in the league.  While the teams and schedules have already been set for the 2024 season, there may be limited opportunities for advanced and experienced 8-year-olds who will be in third grade, to play with a 10A team.  

If you believe that your son has the athletic ability and maturity to play with a team of 9-10 year-olds, and you would like your child to be considered if there are opportunities to join one of the existing teams for the 2024 season, please complete this interest form NO LATER THAN SATURDAY, APRIL 20th.

Please note that this form is to indicate interest and is not to be considered registration.  The HJLBA Board will review the number of requests and openings after April 20th and will contact families shortly thereafter.
