PDSA COVID-19 Safety Plan

On 1/4/22 the PDSA Board of Directors unanimously voted to require all participants - coaches, players, and volunteers - to be fully vaccinated for participation in all league activities beginning with our Spring 2022 baseball season.  The requirement is for full vaccination no later than March 1, 2022.  Our definition of fully vaccinated is as follows:

1) Two weeks after initial dose of either 1 shot of J&J vaccine or 2 shots of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine AND
2) Subsequent doses (boosters) as approved by the CDC and FDA within 30 days of the recommended date

Proof of vaccination will need to be uploaded at the time of registration.

PDSA will consider exemptions for religious and medical reasons; however, such exemptions are not guaranteed and will be reviewed by a committee of the Board and ultimately approved by the Executive Committee of the Board.  If you would like to be considered for an exemption please contact us at [email protected]

In deciding whether to participate, we are sure COVID-related issues weigh heavily on our families. To help mitigate the risks to you and your family, we have prepared formal policies that the PDSA will abide by as we navigate our 2022 baseball season.

Dragons Baseball Divisions

The Philadelphia Dragons Sports Association hosts a variety of baseball programs for boys and girls ages 3 to 15. The registration fee is $195 per child with a family discount of $10 applied for each additional sibling. Scholarships are available in cases of financial hardship.

Pee Wee Quickball Division (Ages 3 and 4)

Our Pee Wee uses the Quickball program for a fast paced, active, and inclusive introduction to baseball.  The division is for 3- and 4-year-old players as of April 30th of the current calendar year. The kids have a session for about 45 minutes to an hour every Sunday to learn the basics of the game.  Each session has a practice component, and a “game” component, and each session involves two teams working collaboratively for both the practice and game component.  The equipment is specifically designed for the youngest children learning the game, for a fun learning experience.  Your child will receive his or her own Quickball bat to take home, and each week will receive an All-Star Character Education card related to the lessons of the week.  https://usaquickball.com/portfolio/about-usaquickball/

Teams are assembled generally by age (with consideration to neighborhood, friend requests, and other factors).  Quickball teams play at Markward Field, at approximately 26th & Pine Streets or Palumbo Field, at 10th & Fitzwater. Once your child is on a team, he or she will play at the same field at the same time every Sunday.

Quickball begins on the Sunday of Opening Weekend (April 3rd this year) and play every Sunday at the same time, same field, weather permitting, except for Memorial Day weekend and Easter Sunday, until Closing Day. 



Tee Ball Division (Ages 5 and 6)

Our Tee-Ball Division is for children who are 5 or 6 as of April 30th of the current calendar year.

One hour-long practice is held per week that are held at either 5:00pm or 6:00pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. Practices generally begin the last week of March, so that the players are ready for games on Opening Weekend. Practices are typically held at either the Markward Rec Center (Taney and Pine Streets) or Starr Garden (7th and Lombard). 

Tee-Ball has a 12-game season, and all games are on weekends. Games are played on Saturdays and Sundays. On most weekends, teams play only on one day per weekend. However, teams will frequently have two games over one weekend - a game on Saturday and a game on Sunday. Games are typically held at either Markward or Palumboa.

There are approximately 8 or 9 weekends in the season (we don't play on Memorial Day weekend or on Easter Sunday). On the last two weekends of the season, games are played on a Little League-sized diamond. To prepare our players for higher levels of play, the use of a pitching machine is introduced over these final two weekends.

If a Tee-Ball game is rained-out, it is not rescheduled. There are no standings or playoffs.

AAA Division (Ages 7 and 8)

Our AAA Division is for children who are 7 or 8 as of April 30th of the current calendar year. 

Two practices are held per week on either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday. Practices generally begin the last week of March, so that the players are ready for games on Opening Weekend.

13-15 SEYAA Division (Ages 13 to 15)

Our 13-15 baseball SEYAA Division is for players looking to continue playing baseball past Little League.  We will field as many teams based on kids signing up.  Our SEYAA team play against other teams from Charter schools, Catholic Schools and other independent teams that sign into the league.

Players are introduced to the 90 foot Diamond and all “Professional Baseball” rules are learned & applied.  Players will practice 2-3 times a week until the season starts and then coaches will dictate practices as the season play on. 

The season consists of 12 games, all played at the SEYAA complex on 7th & Bigler. Playoffs are single elimination and Championship is a best of 3 series.

Players ages are reflective of their birthdate effective April 30th, however, due to COVID, they are making waivers for players age as of March 1.
