Parent/Family FAQs  

Does my child need any special equipment?
We will supply bats, balls, gloves, helmets etc. to get your child started. We can also provide advice on purchasing personal equipment and provide you with access to club discounts.

Is there a membership fee?
There is a membership scheme that will help get your child kitted out.

Initially feel free to come one of our training sessions and we can discuss applicable rates if your child enjoys the programme.

Are your coaches qualified and CRB/DBS checked?
Yes, all our lead coaches are Level 1 or Level 2 qualified and DBS checked. We also have non-coaching volunteers involved with the Youth Programme who are DBS checked.

Is there a youth baseball league and what fixtures are planned for this year?
Our under 19 team will compete in the UK Little League structure, playing teams mostly in the North London area.

Our under 15 team will play a mixture of league games and non-league friendlies with teams from London and the South East.

Our new under 11 team will be making the transition from coach pitch to player pitch during the season and will play in occasional friendlies / tournaments.

How will you keep me updated?
We produce a regular E-Newsletter ("Sock It 2 Me") that will keep parents and juniors updated on all relevant club matters. Our club Facebook and Twitter feeds are also updated regularly.

Parents/family are also encouraged to become volunteer members of the club and in the first instance, such enquires can be directed to our club Volunteer Co-ordinator.
