Wee Ball Description:
Players ages 3 & 4. Using a “safety” ball and a T-ball batting tee, WeeBall focuses on introduction to team sports. WeeBall is parent-led and all players must have at least 1 parent with them on the field at all times. The end goal is to keep a group of toddlers focused on a series of finite actions that, when pulled together, are a ball game. 6 players are used on the field and all players bat. Games run approximately 30 minutes long. Playing season last 6 weeks, with one combined game/practice a week.
We’re excited that you are starting your baseball/softball journey with Oak Hill! Our goal for your player is to have a fun and positive introduction to the game.
Commissioner, Wee Ball

OHYSA provides a badge, armband, shirt or other official item to identify individuals that have met the requirement. Association dues partially offset the cost of this process.
Background checks and Association Dues are both CALENDAR YEAR. If you submitted and passed a background check in the Spring then credentials supplied by OHYSA are valid in the following Fall. If you submitted and passed a background check in the Fall then credential supplied by OHYSA are NOT valid in the following Spring and you will need to submit again for new credentials.

If you know in advance that you will be relying on an adult who is NOT a parent listed with the player at that the time of registration, then that adult will need credentials to participate.
This requires an Association Membership which can be paid for at https://squareup.com/market/oak-hill-youth-sports-association and a background check submission at https://idcards.fullidentity.com/OakHillYouthSports/EmailVerify.aspx
