Boys Youth Baseball

Registration NOW CLOSED!

Registration will be open December 15th through January 15th or until spots are filled!

** Registration numbers are high - No Late Registrations Accepted **

 

Coach Registration is now OPEN (link below)

*** TEAMS WILL NOT BE FORMED WITHOUT A COACH ASSIGNED ***

Example: If we have only 3 Coaches in a division and max roster is 12, only 36 children will be allowed to roster on teams.  All others will be waitlisted until another volunteer coach is available.  This will be on a first come, first served basis using the online registration timestamp.  


Volunteer Coach Application

Coach applications will open 2 weeks before the youth registrations and will be extended until the youth registration ends. We encourage early Coach registration to allow us to get a start on team counts. Thank you!

Grade Level Exception for Division Eligibility

A player's "league age" is determined by looking at how old the player will be on April 30th, 2024.  Example, if your child will be 11 years old on that date, then they would need to be on our 12u division.  HOWEVER, we allow certain grade level exceptions.  The link below will detail these exceptions, but here is the general premise of the exceptions:

* 6u = in kindergarten & league-age of 7
* 8u = in 2nd grade & league-age of 9
* 10u = in 4th grade & league-age of 11
* 12u = in 6th grade & league-age of 13
*14u = in 8th grade & league-age of 15
