REGISTRATION, TRYOUTS, AND DRAFT HAVE BEEN COMPLETED FOR THE 2015 SPRING SEASON. THANK YOU ALL FOR THE SMOOTH PROCESS THAT ALLOWED US TO GET OUR REGISTERED KIDS ON TEAMS THAT WE HOPE WILL ALLOW FOR A GREAT SEASON. PLEASE REMEMBER, WE ARE A VOLUNTEER ASSOCIATION. WE RELY ON PARENTS TO VOLUNTEER TO COACH OUR TEAMS. SOME OF THESE PARENTS ARE FIRST TIME COACHES, AND THEY RELY ON ALL OF YOU IN ORDER TO BE SUCCESSFUL. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER, BEFORE YOU COMPLAIN, THAT THEY STEPPED UP TO THE "PLATE". DO WHAT YOU CAN TO HELP THE TEAMS, KEEP THE PARK CLEAN, ENGAGE IN GREAT SPORTSMANSHIP, AND OVERALL SUPPORT YOUR PARK, AND THIS WILL BE A GREAT YEAR FOR ALL INVOLVED!
NOTE - We do have a few spots available in the 11/12 Age Group. Please contact Ray Sutton. His contact information is in the Contact Info section to the left.
Background Check Process and Coaches Certification
As part of its ongoing efforts to prevent child abuse, Henry County requires everyone, including coaches and other volunteers 18 years of age and older, to obtain a background check. Background checks are required regardless of the length of time someone has been associated with North Henry Youth Baseball, or youth sports in general, and must be renewed annually.
Upon successful completion of the background check, a personalized clearance card with the person's name and photograph will be issued. This card should be carried at all times, and is required to be obtained before being permitted to be on the field, in the dugout, etc. when any child(ren) other than their own are present. Should someone be asked to present a clearance card and they cannot do so, they will be asked to immediately leave the field or dugout areas, and may be subject to penalties up to and including arrest.
Details on how to obtain a background check and clearance card can be found here.
Each coach, specifically head coach, with North Henry Youth Baseball must be certified to coach baseball. It is highly recommended for all coaches as you receive valuable information that will help for years to come. We do not "endorse" any certification agency, but Simply The Best has been providing a service to NHYB for several years. There are various other agencies, but feel free to click on the link below that takes you to the online version of the Simply The Best Certification process. It is a small price to pay for the knowledge you will get.
NO SMOKING and NO PETS!
Absolutely NO PETS OF ANY KIND are allowed in ANY part of the park during practice or games! This does not apply when the park is empty. Please make sure to inform any guests you may have of this. In the event that someone brings a pet, they must leave the pet they bring in a car, if weather conditions are safe to do so, or take the pet home. This is, although not specifically defined, a Henry County Ordinance. In addition, NO SMOKING is allowed at any time in any park within Henry County. This is also a Henry County Ordinance. Thank you for your cooperation with this!
