3G House Evaluations

3G House Evaluations will be on Saturday, March 12 from 4-6PM at the Central Middle School dome. Please arrive on time and return to the dome parking lot by 5:45 in case we are ahead of schedule.

All players in the 3rd grade house league must attend evaluations on March 12. Any player who tries out for 9U travel and does not make a team will automatically move to the 3G house league. Those players must also attend 3G House Evaluations on March 12. 

The purpose of 3G house evaluations is to have parity among teams in the house league. All players who register by the deadline will be placed on a team, regardless of experience or ability.

Please contact the House League Director if you have any questions.

2022 Season Overview

The 3rd Grade League is for children in 3rd Grade during the 2021-22 academic school year.

2022 registration fee is $215. Each player will also purchase a $20 raffle ticket as part of registration.

Teams at this age group are formed based on an evaluation process to create balanced teams selected by coaches based on their results.

Each player will be assigned a time slot and be evaluated on the following:

  • Hitting (batting cage)
  • Throwing / Pitching / Catching
  • Fielding (infield and outfield)

Evaluations will be conducted by 3rd Grade coaches who have registered for the upcoming season.  After the evaluation process has been completed, head coaches will be assigned and teams formed based on the player ratings during evaluations.  Best efforts will be made for all teams within the 3rd Grade league to be balanced.

No "play with" or "coach" requests will be allowed.



Each team will typically practice two weeknights (M/W or T/Th) with games on Sundays.  Practice times are 5:30-7 or 7-8:30.  Games can also be played on assigned practice nights.  There will be no games scheduled during the Memorial Day and 4th of July weekends. 

The 3rd Grade League intends to practice and play games at Plymouth Creek Playfields or LaCompte Fields.

While each coach has discretion, practices will be scheduled for 60-90 minutes.  Games will have a 2 hour time limit.

PLEASE NOTE:  If your child is interested in playing weekend tournaments and a 12-16 game league schedule against other communities, they should try out for the Travel League.  More information can be found on our Travel Page.

League Guidelines

  • Players rotate positions during the course of the season
  • Scores are kept and win/loss record used for end of season tournament
  • A pitch count rule will be enforced for all pitchers
  • Games will be six innings or as many innings that can be played in allotted time
  • Bats must meet PWYBA bat requirements, which are described here:



Players are required to have their own baseball glove, baseball pants and shoes (cleats).  They will be provided a team jersey and hat.  We suggest gray baseball pants.  Many players like to have their own bat (see bat requirements above) and helmet;  however, team coaches are issued bats and helmets that kids can share so they are not required.
