Welcome to the online home of Lakewood Junior Baseball Association.
We are very proud that our organization has been PLAYING BALL since 1944 (long before Lakewood was incorporated in 1969!).
LJBA is committed to developing good character of young men and women on the baseball field. Our coaches on the field focus on discipline, sportsmanship, integrity and teamwork. LJBA’s coaches, players, parents and volunteers take great pride in our organization and our community.
We are not just an organization, we are all TIGERS!
Just wanted to follow up and let everyone know what is happening with our Pee-Wee (ages 5-8) program in 2019 with LJBA. Again this year we will have three different levels:
Modified Kid Pitch (MKP) (recommended for advanced 6 year old, 7 year old and beginner 8 year olds) which is our most advanced where kids actually pitch to one another and in the situation where there isnt enpough strikes the coach will step in to assist the kid pitcher. Games will be played in Lakewood, Green Mountain, and Arvada. Will have end of season tournament.
Coach Pitch(recommend for advance 5 years olds and 6 year olds) which has the coaches pitch to the kids. Games will be played in Lakewood, Wheat Ridge, Green Mountain and Columbine area. Will have end of season tournament.
T-Ball (recommmend for 5 year olds) which is our entry level program, Games will be played in Lakewood, Wheat Ridge, Green Mountain and Columbine area. No end of season tournament.
At all of these levels the kids will practice once or twice a week and have 8 regular season games on Saturdays.
We would like all 7 & 8 year olds to attend from 12:00-1:00 PM
all kids 6 and under from 1:30-2:30 PM
PLEASE PLAN TO ATTEND 20 MINUTES PRIOR TO START TIME FOR REGISTRATION AND WARM UPS
Please note this is not a tryout but rather to place the kids at the proper level team to ensure they learn the game while having fun. We would like all kids who are going to play in the program to participate in our placement day so coaches can better analyze which level kids should be placed at. Teams will be formed in the week after.
March 31we will have uniform handout at Dicks (Belmar location), times TBA based on teams. In order to receive uniform that day kids will need to be paid in full.
Week of April 1 practice will begin
April 13-June 8 regular season games (no games May 25)
May 4 team picture day
June 16 and/or June 23 end of season tournament for MKP and Coach Pitch teams.
Please note registration is open and we have payments plans to make things easier for you. If need be you can register without making payment which will allow us a better idea on the number of teams to expect so please register your child as soon as you can by using this registration link. Registration fee includes jersey and hat. This is for kids born between May 1, 2010 and April 30, 2015.
We are always in need of coaches and/or asst coaches.
Please let me know if any questions, otherwise, we hope to see you on March 9, thank you. If you are going to play in LJBA this season, however you are unable to attend on March 9th, please let us know.
We will have an additional tryout for our 2019 spring season. The spring season starts in April and concludes in June with teams beginning practice in late February/early March.
