FALL2020 Baseball
The Brentwood Ball Club provides an opportunity for boys up to 18 years old to have a place to play organized softball in the city of Brentwood. As the service provider of baseball for the City of Brentwood, we pay the City of Brentwood a $25 fee per player that resides outside the city of Brentwood (to be shown as Non-Resident fee) and pay an additional $10 fee for players outside Williamson County. If you register in our program, your player will be placed on a team regardless of where you live (in or out of the city of Brentwood, in or out of Williamson County). We are happy to have you with us wherever you live. 

How to Get Started if you don’t have an account with us: 
When you are at our website (brentwoodballclub.com), in the upper right, there are two links shown as "Register / Login". As a new user, click the "Register" link. Under the "New Customer Primary Contact", enter all information and then click "Create New Account". To see available programs, you need to “Add Participant” per player. Once you add a participant (i.e. player), that record remains in the system. Each season, after you log in and see "My Account", you would click the green "Programs Available" link to register for a program. 

How to Register at www.brentwoodballclub.com:
  
Registration for the fall season opens on 07/01/20. The registration fee amount depends on the age group and division.

The charge will appear from Sports Connect in your credit card account. If you dispute the charge after you register, you will be responsible for all dispute fees that occur. There is a minimum $35 fee that Sports Connect charges us.

Late Fees

While we do not want to charge any late fees, we need to plan our season which includes setting teams, ordering uniforms, etc. A late registration fee of $10 will start on 08/07/20. And, we will continue to accept registrations as long as we have space available. 

Refunds
A. Any cancellation of a player's registration will result in a refund of the amount paid less the $3 service fee (that is the web host fee), less the credit processing fee, less any late fees and a one-time $10 handling fee.
B. A refund request will be accepted up to the late fee date for the sport you are registering for. That Late Fee date is shown in the Key Dates link on the website. After that date, we would only refund if a replacement player is found. If not, no refund will be provided.
C. Should we have a re-occurrence of a COVID-19 shut down, the amount of the refund will be amount paid less the $3 service fee (that is the web host fee), less the credit processing fee, less any late fee and a one-time $10 handling fee. If uniforms are already printed, we will ensure each player receives their uniform as that amount will not be refunded.
D. We do not refund because someone is unhappy with the results of team placement or unhappy with the practice day. Our teams may practice on any day of the week.

How our Teams are formed: 

A. Our teams are formed based on parent requests, neighborhoods, or school zones. And adjusted to sure equal competitiveness across our teams.
B. In the registration process, you will be asked to provide information and will be provided the opportunity to make requests for a coach, or to be paired with players, etc. Please make sure you enter requests during the registration process.
C. You can update your requests even after you register by logging in, clicking on the crayon icon to the right of the player’s name and then simply updating the record.
D. Some head coaches may get more requests of players for their team than are roster spots. When that occurs, we leave it to the coach to decide which players will be on their team.
E. If you are a parent without a request for a teammate or coach, we will do our best to group your player by school zone or neighborhood.

No more than 5 travel team players can be on one team.

When Practices Occur
A. Practices may occur any day of the week at Civitan Park or Crockett Park. We do not know when each team will practice until around 08/10.
B. The length of practice will depend on the age group. Our younger ages will get shorter times (60-75 minutes) and older age groups will get longer times (up to 90 minutes).
C. Prior to games starting, teams will be scheduled for two practice slots per week. Once games start, it is one per week and the frequency of use by head coach may vary. Once games start, our youngest groups usually don't practice as three days a week is too much.
D. Player refunds are not provided based on an undesired practice slot.

Game / Season Format

In the spring, we keep score. In the summer and fall seasons, we do not. We conduct a draft in the spring to make teams as comparable and competitive as possible. In the summer and fall seasons, teams are formed based on parent requests and they are not always the same in competitiveness. As such, we don't keep score for the summer and fall.
