Registration for the 2019 Fall Ball season at 3&2 is now open.
Register using the fall grade your player will be attending.
Individual player registration will be done through the 3&2 web site and is now open. Parents should click on the orange REGISTER NOW button on the front page of the web site and follow the prompts. Player registration and fees are due by Saturday, July 31.
The league structure will be the same as during the summer with divisions within age levels to make sure teams are matched as evenly as possible. When managers register, please indicate the level of play your team should be in. Standings will be kept. Division winners will receive individual awards. We’ll even schedule your team for double-headers if you’d like!
Teams should wear as similar colored uniforms as possible. Mixed uniforms are acceptable as most fall ball teams will have players from more than one summer team.
Games will be played at both the East Complex (18300 W. 87th St.) and the West Complex (8000 Monticello Rd). All T-ball, coach pitch and machine pitch games will be played at the West Complex.
There are many great baseball camp opportunities available through Johnson County 3&2 Baseball this summer.
For players in K-5th grades, 3&2 runs camps at the East Complex starting June 3rd.
For players currently in the 6th-8th grades, many of the local high school coaches have camps at their schools for players that will be attending that high school. If your school isn't listed, that coach does not run a camp through the 3&2 program. You are always welcome to attend camps outside of your high school area.
Many of these camps, much like several of the winter hitting camp sessions, will fill up. With registration deadlines quickly approaching, now is the time to sign up!
