We are committed to providing advanced baseball opportunities within the Recreation program. We have created different offerings by age group to meet the deveopmental needs of that age group.
12U and 10U
We have joined with Ocee Park, Wills Park and Roswell Youth Baseball to participate in the North Fulton Select League (NFSL). This program is for players looking to play advanced level baseball, but not wanting to participate in an all year Travel program or who are looking to push their skillset to that level. These teams are made up of 10 and 12 year old groups who participate in the NFSL during the Spring season. Tryouts are usually done mid-Dec to early Jam with practices beginning in mid January. We typically play between 20-25 games starting in mid to late February and finishing with the playoffs by mid-May. Teams on average meet 3 to 4 times per week for games and practices. All players who are not selected are automatically enrolled in the Spring Recreational program. Hopewell will field 1 select team in 12U and 1 or more select teams in 10U based on registration numbers. This program will continue with Summer All-Star selections at the end of the recreation season and Fall Select play for players that wish to have an advanced baseball element to their Fall season.
11U and 9U
At these ages we have a Rec-Select program. This means all players will play on a recreation team and also on a Select team. The Select team will practice once a week on Sundays and participate in games on a weekday seperate from Recreation league games. Tryouts for these teams will be part of the recreation assessments or a seperately scheduled tryout in mid-Jan. This provides the opportunity for all Select players to develop at primary positions and pitching within the rec league while also getting advanced experience in the Select league practices and games. This program will continue with Summer All-Star selection and Winter Select play.
At these ages we have a Rec-Select program. This means all players will play on a recreation team and also on a Select team. The Select team will practice once a week on Sundays and participate in 2-4 games against recreation teams from the age group above them (i.e 6U Select plays against 7U Rec Teams). Tryouts for these teams will be part of the recreation assessments or a seperately scheduled tryout in mid-Jan. This program will conclude after Summer All-Star selection.
Clinic style program on Sundays open to all 5 year olds in the recreation program who sign-up.
