The CSYBA will once again be hosting leagues throughout the 2023 season.
School grades are based on the 2022-2023 School Year. However, for Fall Ball 2023, we transition age groups. Fall Ball age groups are based on the 2023-2024 school year. So INCOMING 5th graders in the Fall will play Bronco... INCOMING 7th graders in Fall will play Pony, etc...
For Shetland, Pinto, Mustang, Bronco, and Pony, all teams are recreational 'house-league' teams. All communities are required to have open registration to participate and any communities with multiple teams must make every effort to balance teams.
For our Colt, Palomino, and Thorobred divisions, it is a mixture of open-registration and pre-formed teams, as well as travel/club teams. Divisions at these age groups will be broken up by level of play, depending on enrollment.
For each team, there is a $40 cost to participate. For communities with more than 10-teams participating across all of 2023 (Spring, Summer Fall), the league fee is capped at $400 per community. Fees cover the cost of the website, scheduling software, championship and runner-up individual player trophies, t-shirts, team trophies, and misc other expenses.
Reminder for the 2023 season. For Shetland, Pinto, Mustang, Bronco, and Pony age groups, we have fully moved to the USA Baseball standard for all geographic divisions. All bats must have a USA Baseball Stamp. At the Pony Level, BBCOR bats are okay as well. (Bats with USSSA 1.15 BPF certification are NOT ALLOWED)
For the Colt, Palomino, and Thorobred divisions, all bats must be BBCOR Certified.
