U16

U16


NOTE:  Beginning with the 2017 season, the maximum age to play in this division is 16 (as of 4.30.17). Age verification will also be required at the time of registration so please bring a copy of the player’s learner’s permit, driver’s license or birth certificate to show a JSL rep.  (We do not need to keep the copy so a photo of one of these documents on your phone with the name and date of birth clearly visible will work as well).  With this age change, this division will have a 2-year age spread like our other divisions.  The Board is hopeful this step will alleviate the growing number of sportsmanship issues we have had in this division the past several seasons.  If not, further action will be taken by the Board which may result in eliminating this division entirely.


 

U16 Commissioner

The commissioner for the 2017 season is Eric Hyde.  His direct email is jslu16s@jrsaltdogs.com.

U16 Registration

2017 Season Registration is closed.  We are not able to accept any additional players (no exceptions).  All age-eligible 2017 players will automatically receive information for our 2018 season.  If you didn’t play in 2017 but would like to be added to our database so you receive the 2018 registration information, please email the player’s name, mailing address, and a parent’s email address to Deb at jslregistrations@jrsaltdogs.com.

2016 Teams and Coaches (updated 5.24.17)

We’ll be putting together final details and will have rosters out to coaches by this weekend.  They will then reach out to their players.  First game night is anticipated to be Sunday, June 11.  The full U16 schedule will be linked below when it is finalized so check back frequently.

 

U16 Rules -2017

Game rules are linked above.  Just a reminder that we use high school bat rules for our U16 division.  This means that a player’s bat must have the BBCOR certified stamp on the bat and also be a -3 or less (i.e., -2) in order to be used in a game.  All U16 player bats will be inspected by a JSL rep on the first game night.  If approved, a sticker will be placed on the bat – only bats with this sticker are allowed to be used in U16 games.

The 2017 U16 game schedule will be linked here in early June .  U16 games are played at Densmore fields on Tuesday and Friday evenings at 6pm and 8pm and on Sunday at 4pm, 6pm, and 8pm.

U16 Tournament Schedule – 2017

For the 2017 season, JSL will host an end-of-season tournament using the same game days/evenings as regular season games.  Dates won’t be known until early July – they will be posted here when finalized.  Medals will be awarded to the top 2 teams based on final tournament results.
