Registration Information

Registration for the Spring Season opens on December 1st and runs through March 1st. More information regarding registration for the upcoming season can be found below.

In-House Player Evaluations

In an effort to level the playing field for all players, Bobcats Baseball and Softball will be instituting player evaluations prior to teams being drafted in early March. In doing so, our volunteer coaches will be able to make informed decisions on players’ strengths, opportunities, and potential prior to our players heading outdoors in April. Furthermore, these evaluations will help ensure a fair draft process and ultimately provide a more consistent playing experience for all players. 

Volunteer Opportunities

The Tinley Park Bobcats are a 100% volunteer ran organization and we rely on volunteer to help ensure we deliver a fun and successful season for our players. If you are interested in volunteering for the upcoming season, please let us know during the registration process.


Head Coaches will be responsible for drafting their team and will serve as the main point of contact for players and parents. Coaches will sign up for their practice time from available times and locations. The number of Head Coaches is determined by the number of teams for each season. Commissioners determine Head Coaches.


Assistant Coaches will be responsible for aiding Head Coaches throughout the season. The number of Assistant Coaches is determined by the number of teams each season. Commissioners and Head Coaches work together to select Assistant Coaches.


A Team Parent will be assigned to each team. The Team Parent will be responsible for delivering picture forms and uniforms and preparing a snack schedule for their team.

Criminal Background Checks are required for all volunteer opportunities.
