Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions

Q:    What equipment does my player need?
In general, we recommend players have a glove, bat, helmet, and cleats.  Cleats are optional for T-Ball and A-Ball. Gloves come in many types and sizes. Dicks Sporting Goods has a great buying guide for baseball and softball to help you choose the right glove.  All bats must have the USA Baseball or USA Softball stamp on them, and for divisions AA and above players cannot use a T-Ball bat.  Dicks also has some great info to help with bat purchases for baseball and softball.

Q:    Does Cherry Hill Atlantic have a mobile app? 
Yes! Cherry Hill Atlantic uses the GameChanger mobile app for schedules, rosters, and team communications. AAA and Majors divisions also use the app to maintain our in-game scorecards. Once you're set up on the GC app, its generally best practice to use the app to RSVP to games and practices, and send communications to your team and coaches. We strongly recommend at least one family member downloads and uses the app.

Q:     When does registration open/close? 
Registration for the Spring season opens in December and closes in March. Late registration fees apply for registrations received after the first week of February, so please try to register early. Registration for the Fall season opens in early July and closes in late August.

Fall Ball Questions

Q:      When does the Fall season start/end? 
The Fall season runs from early September until the 3rd week of October. The Fall season's first games will generally be around the first day of school based on the Cherry Hill public school calendar.

A:     The A-Ball Prep Program is intended for players transitioning into Coach Pitch for the first time. The program is run on Sundays, typically either late-morning to early-afternoon. It is a mix of fundamental skills training and game-play. Many of the players in Fall A-Ball Prep are incoming kindergartners, but some younger players who have already played T-Ball will participate as well.

A:     For the Minors and Majors programs, there will typically be 2 games per week. One game is during the week (Mon-Thurs) and one on Saturdays. Practice schedules are at the coach's discretion.  The time schedule for Fall Ball will vary from the Spring due to limited daylight hours and availability of fields with lights.
