FAQ about Team Dinger
How often will Chad Moeller work with my son?
Chad is involved in the hitting skills and may be available at other practices as we work on individual skills and team drills during the field portions of the practice. All other coaches will manage practices and games for whatever team they are assigned to.
What type of skills will my son be taught?
All players and my coaches are taught by our coaches and utilize Chad Moeller’s playbook. This ensures consistency for all players should a player be moved up a level to another team. The organization is set up just like the minor league system.
Is my child guaranteed a certain amount of playing time?
No child is guaranteed playing time. We will roster up to 12-14 players for each team. Since there are only nine playing spots on the field, coaches will rotate players according to the situation. We encourage players to be open with playing multiple positions. It is not promised that every player will receive equal playing time. In baseball there are key positions that must be addressed. If your child plays one of these key positions then his playing time may be high. Catcher and shortstop are critical positions and cannot be overlooked. The team depends on these positions to be strong. Outside of the key positions, I will work with the team coaches to base decisions on the following criteria, in this order:
What does it cost for my child to play?
Monthly fees. For all teams 14U and below, the monthly fee of $230 per month will be paid out every four weeks. The fee includes the cost of the batting cages, coaches, and field practice times.
Each player will be responsible for purchasing a uniform consisting of a hat and game jerseys. Uniforms are in addition to the monthly fees. Practice jerseys can be purchased separately.
Tournament fees: The monthly fees do not cover tournaments. On average, the tournament fee including coaches ranges between $750 to $1,000. The cost of the tournament will be calculated by taking the number of players and dividing by the total cost. For example, if the cost of the tournament is $750 and there are 12 players, the tournament cost will be $62.50 per player. If your son plays at any time during the weekend, you will be responsible for the cost of the tournament.
League Fees: For the divisions that play in a League, additional fees will be charged. These fees are charged at the beginning of each season. Fees vary based on team and season.
All fees will be run via credit or debit card on our secure authorize.net account. Authorize.net provides the highest level of encryption and security available. At the beginning of the season we will ask that you submit a $50 deposit via credit or debit card through a secured transaction. Submission of this fee implies that you understand this card will be used to make future Team Dinger payments as they are due. The card that you use to make this deposit will be encrypted and kept on file to run all recurring monthly fees, tournament fees and league fees. If you receive a new or updated card during the season, please promptly provide the card information directly to Chad Moeller.
What is the Time Commitment?
3-4 days (max) a week for practices and games. Two practices a week are the norm. For example, most teams had hitting practice on Monday afternoon, fielding practice during the week and games on Saturday and Sunday.
Typically League games are not played on weekends with tournaments. Tournaments will consist of a minimum of three or four games with a maximum of five or six games over a weekend. Tournaments held during holiday weekends may run for three days.
