Practices

Travel Season BBSA

Practices and dates will be determined by your travel team coaches.

Regular Season BBSA

Practices will begin during the week of November 16th with Opening Day for baseball/softball on Saturday, Nov 17th. Games are played on Saturdays with possibility of a few Friday evenings at ISB. Games will continue every weekend until the league championships the weekend of February 22-23. There will be no games during the winter break at ISB but we will continue play pickup games on Saturday, January 6th 2019.

All teams will practice once per week during the season as a weekly practice is important to skills development and to learn the fundamentals of teamwork, etc. Most practices will take place at the ISB fields on weekday evenings (Monday – Thursday). We have arranged a downtown Bangkok location for an optional weekly practice at NIST. Parents will have to pay THB 1000 for the season for this practice because NIST charges for field usage. But all players should register to play even if they cannot commit to attending all weekly practice sessions.

Volunteering

On the registration form you will also have an opportunity to volunteer to be a coach, assistant coach or team parent. Please consider helping out with your child’s team in some way. The kids really love having their parents helping out with their team and you will have a great time. No previous baseball experience is necessary.
