All teams must submit a registration form. We cannot accept phone calls and e-mails as completing the registration process. All teams must submit their insurance showing TSE Baseball, PO Box 1354, Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971 as additional insured.

We are currently working with League Apps to enhance the registration process that will allow teams to use credit cards for payment. We hope to have this loaded to the website shortly.

7U, 15/16U and 17/18U: $150

Scheduling

No scheduling should take place until registration is closed and the coaches listing is distributed. Everyone will be notified the day and time the listing will be sent to the coach of each registered team. If you fail to follow protocol, your team and related contact information will not be listed on the coaches listing when it is distributed for scheduling.

TSE and TSE Sanctioned Tournaments

The schedule for the tournaments is listed on the Home page. Only those tournaments that TSE hosts or sanctions will count as scheduled games and be reflected in the standings. If your organizations is interested in having your tournament sanctioned by TSE, please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or (302) 212-5168 to discuss opportunities.

We will maintain our relationship with Sports at the Beach. Games played against other TSE teams at SATB will also count. Further, teams playing there will have an opportunity to receive a discount (process is detailed on the Home page of our website).

League and Rules Discussion for 2017

Should you have any comments on the League in general, please submit them to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so that may review. Our goal is to review the League on an annual basis and improve the quality of the way the League is managed. This is a standard process prior to every season where the Board will review and evaluate each recommendation for inclusion in the playing rules.

Annual Pre-Season League Meeting

We will host a league wide meeting for all new coaches, teams and programs in late January/early February to walk through how the league works, discuss rules and review the scheduling process. It is not mandatory, but recommended to help out the new coaches as they prepare for the season. In addition, the meeting is available to existing coaches if they have matters they wish to discuss with us in person.

There will not be separate league meetings and scheduling for ages 7U and 8U. Those coaches are encouraged to attend the pre-season meeting. Scheduling for these age divisions will take place in similar fashion to the other age divisions.
