Where are practices & games: Most practices and games will be held at the Greenwood Community Center. There are times that we do go to other fields to play scrimmages & games. Greenwood does interlock with other Leagues such as Lane, Fluvanna, Greene, Orange, Spotsylvania and a few other leagues so occasional travel is more than likely. We do try to schedule away games on the weekends.

Try Outs:  Greenwood try outs are held after Western has established their teams. Tryouts will be held at Henley Middle School, Saturday, Feb 16th (Date subject to change)  Please plan on being there by 8:45 to get warmed up so we can get started at 9am sharp.

What time will practice start: The head coach determines practice time. During the first few weeks practices will more than likely be on the weekends only due to school schedules and the limited number of day light hours. Week day practices will be determined by the head coaches and they may ask to start practice at 5:30 due to darkness during the week days. Most coaches will start weekday practices at 5:30 or 6:00

At the beginning of the season games will mainly be on the weekends, Saturdays & or Sundays, due to darkness. Once it starts staying lighter later, games will be weeknights & weekends.

CONCESSION STAND: EACH PARENT IS REQUIRED TO WORK AT LEAST ONE TIME IN THE CONCESSION STAND. A schedule will be given to the head coach as to which days their team is to work the concession stand.  Parents working the stand are required to stay until everyone has left the baseball field.
