– Click Here to Register –


HVBSA families,

First and foremost, we hope that you, your family and friends are safe and well in what continues to be a challenging time for everyone. As you may recall, New Jersey officials have allowed "medium risk" youth sports, which includes baseball and softball, to begin practices as of June 22 and games as of July 6. 

HVBSA has continued to monitor the latest guidances and directives throughout the pandemic, and given the current status, we are excited to be able to offer a fall rec season for baseball and softball. Of course this can change with changes in local, state or national restrictions, so we want to be as flexible as possible.

In order to provide as safe an environment as possible where the boys and girls can have fun, we will have in place several requirements that align with local (Hopewell Twp), NJ state and National CDC guidelines. The full list of requirements is still in progress, but among these will be:

  • Temperature checks upon arrival and contact tracing sign in for all participants and spectators

  • Limited use if dugouts for team members

  • Distancing players and equipment in team areas

  • Masks and social distancing required for spectators

  • Masks required for players when walking between car and field (but not while on the field)

Currently we expect to start practicing (both baseball and softball) in mid/late August, with games starting just after Labor Day. Tee ball will start after Labor Day. The season will run through October. Fees for the fall seasons will be as follows:

  • Softball (Kindergarten through 12 years old as of Jan 1, 2020):  $90

  • Cal Ripken Baseball (ages 6-12 as of April 30, 2020):  $90

  • Babe Ruth Baseball (ages 13-15):  $990

  • Tee-Ball (ages 5-6):  $90 

At this time, we are opening up registration for those interested, but we WILL NOT be collecting fees at this time - they will be due once the season starts. This allows some flexibility in the case that local or state mandates change between now and then. 

We understand that everyone's situation is different, but for those who are able to participate, we hope that getting back on the field will bring back a small sense of normalcy for for the kids. These last few months have been trying for all, and we look forward to playing ball again soon!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.
