Practices for the most part will be conducted at KW/FCBA fields and batting cages (7-19). Tball & Shetland coaches may elect to conduct some of their practices at local close to neighborhood locations such as school yards for convenience of all or majority of players since these teams are formed with those players coming from one village or elementary school area.

However, at least two practices per week must be at KW/FCBA facilities. Each team will practice at least twice a week. If not, parents should contact league coordinator so issue can be addressed with coach. Likewise, players are expected to attend at least two practices per week prior to games starting.
