HEWYBL currently offers the following youth sports programs:
Mercer East Babe Ruth Baseball for 13-15 and 16-18 Year olds
Registration Deadline is March 20. After March 20, a late fee will apply. For this season, we will have a flat registration fee per player and we have kept that fee the same as the last few years.
Registration fee - $250
Late Fee of $20 starts on March 20.
Note: Players receive full uniform that includes jersey, pants, belt, and cap.
Of course there are still some uncertainties regarding the Covid-19 situation. At this time, we anticipate the season will start in Mid to Late April and conclude by the first or second weekend in June followed by All-Stars in late June or July. The start date could of course change pending school or league situations.
For this season, we intend to play Friday night games until mid-May when school ball will conclude. This should hopefully ease commitments for families.
Then we will move to two games per week later in May through the end of the season.
We will play in-house games along with some interleague games against other leagues (TBD pending Covid-19 restrictions in NJ and within the Babe Ruth District).
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Steve Burd at

Evaluations, Player Draft and Season:
Freshman: This division runs as part-clinic and part-game as the coaches teach kids the most basic fundamentals of flag football. For this division, there is not evaluation and not player draft.
Sophomre, JV and Varsity: In order to prevent any more intermingling than necessary, we will form teams made up of players from their school. We will not hold our tradition pre-season player evaluation session this season. All siblings in the same age group will be placed on the same team.
Each team may have up to two coaches, and each coach will automatically have his or her child on their team.
Senior Varsity: This is set up as a more competitive division. If you are in the Senior Varsity division (15-18 years old), and have a group of friends or teammates from your high school that would like to form a team, please reach out to me at
and we will place you on the same team. Players in Senior Varsity may also sign up as “free agents” and will be assigned to one of the Senior Varsity teams.

HEWYBL is a non-profit organization run 100 percent by volunteers. If you can help with coaching or player evaluations, please note that on your registration and/or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will not have the tradition Coaches Clinic this season, but we will provide coaches with a number of resources – sample plays, practice plans, drills, etc. to help prepare any new coaches. I am also available to answer any questions or give any advice gleaned from my coaching experience over the years.

As many of you know, HEWYBL requires all coaches to take the Online Consussion Training offered by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC). We are now rolling this awareness program to parents/guardians of our youth athletes. Attached is a link for the Concussions Awareness Fact Sheet which all should review. This Fact Sheet is also located in our Documents tab from the Home Page. The Online Concussion Training is required for coaches and recommended for parents and others helping to keep athletes safe from concussion. The free course takes only 30 minutes to complete and keeps our children safe.
