Register now for Fall Travel Baseball
by posted 08/03/2022


Registration for our Heights Fall Baseball is now open!

Our season begins the weekend of September 10th and lasts for 7 weeks.  Games will be played through USABL and scheduled for Saturdays (7u-13u) or Sunday (14u-18u), with at least 2 doubleheaders scheduled and all teams are guaranteed at least one playoff game. Practice will be at the coach’s discretion. 

PAL encourages our athletes to participate in multiple sports and recognize Fall Baseball is traditionally in its offseason.  Travel baseball coaches are expected to schedule and work around in-season PAL sports like football and soccer.

Fall baseball is typically less competitive than Summer baseball and focuses on player development.  Many of the Red teams may play at the spring 2023 rules and field size to prepare themselves. 

Playing Fall Baseball does not guarantee future placement and will have no impact on Spring/Summer roster.  There will be separate tryouts for those seasons.

Berkeley Heights travel teams will use the same uniform in Fall as Spring/Summer season.

BH PAL will make as many travel teams as possible based on the number of kids that register, and if volunteers are available to coach.

Register now for Fall Football
by posted 05/26/2022


2022 Highlander Youth Tackle Football (3rd - 8th Grade)

The program is open to Berkeley Heights and Mountainside students in grades 3-8. Players will be assigned to the following team levels depending on grade:

Competitive levels with scorekeeping, playoffs, and a Super Bowl:

  • A Team – Grade 8
  • B Team – Grade 7
  • C Team – Grade 6
  • D Team – Grade 5

Instructional level – live games teaching fundamentals in a competitive environment:

  • E Team – Grades 3 & 4

Please note: to ensure all players are able to play at their age/grade-appropriate level, the Highlander Youth Football program will continue to merge teams, when necessary, with the New Providence Pioneer Youth Football Program. At any grade level, if either program does not have enough players to field a team, the two programs will merge for that grade level. The program with the greater number of players will typically field the team, which also dictates when and where that grade level practices, and which program's uniforms are worn.

The season will begin August 15th. Highlander teams will begin summer practices Monday-Thursday evenings at Snyder Field. Practices are held 2-3 times per week once school begins. Teams will play a total of 8 regular season games – typically scheduled on Sundays. Other Key Dates:
