Registration FAQs

I want to sign my child up but need to pay later. Possible?

Absolutely! Please sign your player up online. When asked to provide payment select "Pay by Check" and you can pay at a later date. Just be sure to pay before the registration deadline or late fees may apply.

Gameplay FAQs

Can my player be on so-and-so's team?

Maybe. In T-Ball, since there is no player draft most accommodations can be made. All other leagues have a player draft by designated coaches. In these leagues we will try our best to accommodate your request as long as it does not compromise the purpose of the player draft -- to make our leagues as competitive and fun as possible.

What days are games played?

  • Spring - We play the majority of games on weeknights to help avoid as many weekend conflicts as possible. There will be a few Saturday games.
  • Fall - Games are on Sunday afternoons starting at 1pm. We might add a weeknight depending on the number of teams.

Equipment FAQs

What equipment do we need to buy our player?

Required:

  • Glove (Each player will need their own)

Recommended:

  • Helmet - We provide shared helmets on game day. If you do not want your player sharing helmets with other players you will need to buy your own.
  • Cleats - Obviously cleats are better, but tennis shoes can be used.

Are we allowed to use this bat? (What bat do I buy?)

You can learn more about our league's rules on bats by reading the bat rules page.

Weather FAQs

It is raining outside - are we playing?

Decisions to cancel are determined by field conditions or severity of the weather in the area. Generally speaking, if it is just rain we will try to play games if field conditions allow. USSSA rules require 20-30 minute delay in the least when lightening is in the area. In the event SCBR does decide to cancel (or delay) practice or games related to the weather we will use the following tools to send alerts:

  • GroupMe (join the group)
  • Email - We will send an email notification to all players.

NOTE: We will make every effort to make the decision 60 minutes prior to the event. In certain situations this may not be possible but we'll try our best. If you do not receive a notification as described above -- assume we are playing!

Heat index is HOT outside - are we playing?

We follow the lead of Shelbyville Schools. If they cancel extra curricular activities, we'll cancel. Otherwise, we're playing. Make sure you bring plenty of water or Gatorade to hydrate!

In the event we do cancel practice or games, we will notify you as described in the rainout policy. (question above this one)

Communication / Announcements FAQs

Where are the latest annoucements or alerts posted?

We try to post all our important annoucements / latest news on our website.

How do I get GroupMe notifications?

Starting in 2022 (and beyond), SCBR will be using GroupMe app to push notifications to your devices for rainouts, important dates, etc.
