Freemansburg Bethlehem Township Athletic Association

Spring 2023

Welcome

Welcome to the Spring 2023 Registration with Freemansburg Bethlehem Township Athletic Association!

Registration will take place fully online this season. Due to the longer than normal lead times on uniforms this season we will be closing registration earlier than years past.

Ages 12 and below:
Registration process begins 1/1/2023 and will remain through 2/18/2023. Team counts are due on that date. If there are still openings we will keep registration open until for age groups that still have open spots.


Ages 13 and above:
Registration process will begin 1/1/2023 and will remain through March. You have to be registered to attend tryouts. Tryout will be held in April - Dates TBD.


We will be collecting the registration fee for all age groups when you register. For players on the senior field if you don't make a roster we will refund your money the day teams rosters are announced.

Again, we will be collecting a work bond from all families, $100 per player. This will be in the form of a check. Uniforms will not be handed out to families who do not supply us with a check ahead of time. Once you reach your commitment to volunteering for the program your check will be returned to you. Anyone who has not completed their volunteer commitment will have the checks cashed. This is a 100% volunteer organization with 300+ players. It takes a village to make the program successful. We understand your schedule is crazy so we will be adding other ways to reach your commitment other than snack stand shifts. Any questions about this please reach out to us at FBTAAbaseball@gmail.com.

Parents that have more than 1 athlete in the program we offer a $25 discount for each additional athlete. At the checkout, you can enter a the discount code that fits the number of athletes in your family:

2 athletes code: familyof2 
3 athletes code: familyof3
4 athletes code: familyof4

COACH PITCH(T-Ball) is meant for 4, 5, and 6 year olds who have never played before. The goal here is to have the kids hitting off coach pitching by the end of the season.

MAJORS is meant for 11-12 year olds and introduces leading and is played on a larger dimension field.
BUSHKILL is meant for 13-14 year olds. Many times schools don't offer a middle school program for baseball so this level fills the gap.

CONNE MACK SR is meant for 16-17 year olds. This level is highly competitive and is no longer considered recreational.

FINACIAL ASSISTANCE FOR SPORTS REGISTRATION

At FBTAA we don't want any child to not be able to play sports due to financial constraints.  Below are two great programs you can apply for to help with registration costs if you meet the criteria.  If you plan on applying for these, please email fbtaabaseball@gmail.com with your player's name / age and do not complete this registration at this time.

If these programs do not apply or are unavailable, cases of financial hardship should be directed to the Executive Board and will be reviewed on a case by case basis.
