TBALL & SHETLAND
Tball & Shetland Ages do not tryout. Players are placed on teams by village
or school area/neighborhood. Coaches notify players after teams have been formed.
Tryouts are conducted to provide basis for team managers to evaluate players so teams can be drafted. Goal is to have a balanced division of teams providing a competitive season.
No core teams are allowed in the general league. No players are protected in the draft. (except manager's player) All assistant coaches, team parents, & etc... children are drafted on the team.
Players only need to attend one of the tryouts. If player is trying out for DI at the Pinto or Mustang divisions and are not selected for the DI division it is recommended that they attend the DII general league tryout.
Tryouts typically last 10 - 15 minutes on the field. Tryouts are first come first serve. Total time may be longer than the 10-15 minutes depending upon the length of the line.
Equipment needed for tryout:
- proper attire for baseball - tennis shoes cleats,
- bat if they have one.
Batting helmets will be provided by KW/FCBA.
If tryouts are cancelled due to weather a reschedule date will be emailed as soon as it is determined. Typically if Saturday is rained out then next day Sunday will be scheduled if field conditions permit.

Option#1: KW/FCBA Select Teams. ALL players are required to tryout and be selected for the team by independent evaluators. Managers must submit an application and background check form to be considered for manager position. These teams will represent KW/FCBA in tournament play and as a league member/representative will be registered at a lesser fee than independent teams registering under option #2 .
KW/FCBA Select teams will receive facility time scheduled beginning in December on weekends (no lights) and then lighted field time scheduled beginning in January through July 30th. Teams may use their field time for practice, games and scrimmages. These teams will participate in KW/FCBA sanctioned/hosted select leagues and tournaments as defined in team contract. These teams may receive tournament free play for assisting with KW/FCBA tournaments. Teams will be covered under KW/FCBA insurance as accepted by other organizations (USSSA, Super Series, etc). Any organizations requiring purchase of their own insurance is the Select team’s responsibility.
As stated players must tryout and be selected to play on these teams. If it is deemed that there is not the talent level to form a team at a particular age to meet the desired goal then it is solely KW/FCBA’s discretion to either form a team at a lower level of play or not form a team.
Players NOT selected may elect to play in the KW/FCBA Spring League.
Option #2: Independent (Neighborhood) Kingwood Select Teams may register to participate in the KW/FCBA Select program as a full team. Registration for these teams will beginat the end of October. KW/FCBA Select teams will receive facility time scheduled beginning in December on weekends (no lights) and then lighted field time scheduled beginning in January through July 30th. These teams may play at any level that the members elect to do so, IE "A", "AA", "AAA", "Major". Teams may use their field time for practice, games, and scrimmages. These teams will participate in KW/FCBA sanctioned/hosted select leagues and tournaments as defined in team contract. Teams will be covered under KW/FCBA insurance as accepted by other organizations (USSSA, Super Series, etc). Any organizations requiring purchase of their own insurance is the Select team’s responsibility.
ALL Select teams must register all players, sign waivers, parents sign Principles for Parents, managers and coaches submit background check forms, sign and agree to select team contract terms.

Furthermore any and all teams coming to play must have their team roster including all coaches and insurance on file with KW/FCBA 48 hours prior to field time use.

However, any team that plays in a KW/FCBA tournament and then comes to play a game with a KW/FCBA select team must still meet this requirement.
KW/FCBA Baseball Program - Spring DI/DII Overview
The Kingwood/Forest Cove Baseball Association program consists of the following options for players dependent upon their age and skill set. The DI/DII programs are based upon registration numbers.
Division I & Division II:
Within the General League structure KW/FCBA provides two playing divisions in some age groups based upon the number of participants registered and if interest warrants. These divisions are typically available in the Pinto and Mustang ages, again based upon the number of participants and if interest warrants.
- League Division I (Competitive-Advanced Recreational): Comprising approximately 35% of an age group DI offers more competitive play for the more advanced player. Typically, in an age that has enough participants there are 4-5 teams formed. Teams are selected by a tryout (note: not everyone is selected who attends the tryout). All players not making a DI team will be placed in the DII player pool. DI League typically selects end-of-season team(s) to participate in the PONY National Tournament series. DI is more competitive play level. Players are expected to have above average skills.
- League Division II (Recreational): Comprising approximately 55% of an age group DII with teams drafted after a tryout (note: all players who register are drafted). DII League typically selects end-of-season team(s) to participate in the PONY National Tournament series. In DII there is more emphasis on fundamental instruction, everyone makes a team.
