What Age Group is Right for My Ballplayer?
BHAA has a program to suit all boys and girls ages 4 to 18. But it can be confusing to figure out where your child belongs. BHAA follows Little League rules to determine age divisions. For baseball, age group is determined by a child’s age on April 30, 2017. For softball, age is determined based on January 1, 2017. These age rules are strictly followed with exceptions only on a case-by-case basis for children with disabilities or special needs. See policy below under FORMS for BHAA's policy on moving players up to the next age group league.

BHAA Code of Conduct

Honoring BHAA's Code of Conduct

BHAA has in place a code of conduct that governs the behavior of both children and adults at our fields and also when playing on the road. These guidelines are intended to maintain a safe playing atmosphere for youth sports and to set good behavior examples for our children. Please respect that tobacco, alcohol, drugs, weapons and profanity are prohibited at all BHAA sporting and fundraising events -- both home and away. We also ask that you refrain from standing and cheering from behind backstops during games, as your presence there can be a source of distraction and intimidation for both teams. Please also place trash in the proper containers and not underneath our bleachers. With your continued cooperation, BHAA and our field complex can continue to be the “hidden gem” on Pittsburgh’s North Side that so many visiting teams consider it to be.
