This registration session will allow you to sign consents, provide contact information and submit payment. Please read through each page carefully to ensure that all information is provided accurately. To complete registration through our secure site, please have your Visa, MasterCard, Discover or Checking account information available. Upon conclusion of this registration session, you will see a charge on your account from Garden Grove Pony Bas.


2019 Information, Please Read before continuing.

Thank you for registering with Garden Grove Pony Baseball.  There are a few changes to the registration process this year.  Please see the flyer below for more information on what division is appropriate for your child. Second, we are now requiring a $50 deposit upon registration. This is refundable if you request a refund prior to uniform day. If your refund is requested after uniform day, you will receive a refund minus the $50 deposit. There will be no refunds after the start of the season. 

PInto:   We have created a Pinto 7U Machine Pitch Division.   All 7 year olds will be placed in Machine Pitch, unless you have your 7 year old tryout and they are selected for kid pitch team.   

We feel that this is in the best interest for the kids.  It will provide a smoother transition between Shetland and PInto.    We have consulted local Pony leagues and have only received positive feedback about the experience of machine pitch divisions.   Batters get more quality at bats, rather than walking so often.  Fielders see more ground balls and pop-flys, rather then standing in the field while pitchers struggle to throw strikes.  

You can still play kid pitch if your child attends tryouts and is selected by an 8U team.  


2019 Garden Grove Pony Divisions

FOAL:  Introductory baseball.   This division is designed for 3 and 4 year olds with no previous team sport experience.  Teams will consist of 7 players and all games will be on Saturdays.   It is a 10 game season.  Players will use the hitting tee for all games.  You may request a specific coach and request to be placed on same team as other kids. 

Shetland National:  This division is for league age 4 and 5 year olds.  If your child played FOAL last year and is ready for a combination of machine pitch/ tee-ball, this is the division for your child. 15- 20 Game season games two days a week. You may request a specific coach and request to be placed on the same team as other kids. 

Shetland American:  This division is for 5 and 6 year olds.   This is for the advanced 5 year olds and all 6 year olds.   This division uses the pitching machine the entire season.  All players in this division will be evaluated and put into a player draft to help balance out teams.   16-20 game season.  Games two days a week.
