THE PHILOSOPHY OF SEBA AGE DIVISIONS

The creation of single age divisions provides SEBA participants an opportunity to play with schoolmates in a league setting that is appropriate for their physical, mental and emotional maturity levels. In comparison to organizations with multi-age divisions, age difference more often than not also equates to a disparity in skill, strength, and emotional maturity between an older player and a younger player. The bigger and stronger players are more often than not the older players. It is logical to assume that playing time in a multi-age divisional organization system will gravitate to the older players vs. a SEBA system where all participants are the same age. The maximization of playing time in the opinion of the Association is a key element in the overall development of participants as well as increasing the likelihood of retaining participants within the system.

EQUIPMENT

Players are responsible for their own Baseball Glove and PLAIN gray baseball pants. Teams are provided with all other necessary equipment to play. Players are allowed to bring their own bats and helmets but is not required.

SEBA LEAGUE FIELDS

The locations for the age divisions will most likely be (but are subject to change):

  • T-Ball - Dunham and/or Elmwood
  • Coach Pitch Kindergarten Elmwood and/or Dunham
  • Coach Pitch 1st- Covell
  • Coach Pitch 2nd - Covell

  • Player Pitch 4th, 5th and 6th (Rec and Comp) - Pasley and/or Kuehn
  • Harmodon League (7th-11th) - Harmodon

TEAM FORMATION

All summer SEBA League participants are assigned to teams base on the school they attend, night of the week preference, and/or friend request. This allows children an opportunity to play with their schoolmates. Teams are set by the SEBA Staff.  Some divisions are set on specific nights of the week where other divisions have options. 

Scholarship Program

A scholarship program is available for developmental league participants needing financial assistance. SEBA partners with the Connecting Kids program through the Sioux Empire United Way to offer this assistance to those CURRENTLY in Kindergarten thru 8th Grade. Participants on free or reduced lunch or Medicaid will automatically receive assistance with proof of enrollment. Participants with special circumstances may also apply for a scholarship. Scholarship applications must be approved by the board. Proof of reduced or free lunch or Medicaid (card with player's name on it) is required at the time of registration. The registration fee for scholarship recipients in SEBA league varies depending on grade and can be offset by using the Scrip program. Scholarships are not available after the registration deadline.
