Tryouts and Registration Information

What is Stillwater Area Baseball Association?

Stillwater Area Baseball Association is a non-profit organization incorporated in the fall of 2003 as an initiative to focus and maximize the baseball resources in the Stillwater Area School District.

Stillwater Area Baseball Assoc. is a competitive traveling baseball association and is the only local association using outside evaluators as a cornerstone of its tryout process. Last year, Stillwater Area Baseball Assoc. fielded 20 teams in the 9 - 15 year old age groups. All our teams played in the Metro Baseball League providing Stillwater Area School District kids the most competitive and best challenges. The ultimate goal of Stillwater Baseball is to field well-balanced teams playing at each player’s ability.

The mission for Stillwater Area Baseball Assoc. is to promote and to develop the growth of quality amateur baseball in the St. Croix Valley and Stillwater area. The organization promotes the principles of sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage, and respect for others.

If you played last year, you have the option to reduce your Team Fees by $50 if you do not need a new jersey for the 2020 Season. If paying team fees by credit card and choose no jersey the credit card processing fees will also be less.

If your player is selected to be on the 14/15A team and there are duplicate numbers the 14U player will need to purchase a new jersey. If you do not continue the progression and play the next age level and jersey number is taken you must purchase a new jersey, for instance if you play 14U last year and play 14U the following year. If the jersey is not in good shape you must purchase a new jersey. 

If you select that you do not need a jersey and need to order after the fact you will be charged $75. Price difference is due to volume discount and freight.

Payments

Payments need to be received prior to the player participating in any Stillwater Area Baseball Assoc. event.

 

Method of paying the fees this year.

Pay via Check Offline - Three (3) separate checks can be brought to the High School at tryouts, one for tryouts (see table above), one for team fees (see table above), and one for $100 for the Volunteer Fee made payable to Stillwater Area Baseball Assoc. Select Pay Offline on the payment option.

Pay via Credit Card Online - Fees can be paid using your credit card when you register here online. In addition to your Tryout and Team fee, you will also be responsible for the credit card processing fee. Credit Processing fee is charged at time of registration with the Tryout/Registration and this fee is non-refundable. Volunteer Fee cannot be paid online and will need to bring a check to tryouts. Select Payment Plan in payment option or if you select Pay in Full you will be charged Tryout/Registration Fees and Team Fees now instead of Team Fees later.

 

Refund Policy: Once tryouts begin, no refunds of monies or uniform items will be made except to participants who are cut.   The Stillwater Area Baseball Assoc. Board gives individual consideration to injured players unable to participate in tryouts.


Uniform Information

There will be a uniform fitting night after teams are formed to order correct sizes.


Volunteering

For 2019 we will require a separate volunteer check of $100 to be turned in at tryouts. The check will be destroyed after the 11 hours of volunteer time is completed throughout the season. If 11 hours of volunteer time is not completed your check will be cashed at the end of the season. 1 hour of credit will be given for your attendance at the All Association Parent Meeting in February - March.

Stillwater Area Baseball Association is an ALL volunteer association. We rely entirely on volunteers to coach, host tournaments (field prep, concessions), field repairs and improvements, marketing and all other tasks.  

Thank you for your support!
