At all levels we try to play 8-games, predominately on Saturday mornings, with a few Sundays or weekdays to get to at least 8. Oppurtunities to play more than 8-games are available. Regular season play will run through October 6th, followed by league playoffs the following weekend.

The cost to play is $40 for a team. (With a maximum of $400 per community for the entirety of the 2024 season, [Spring, Summer, Fall].


The CSYBA will once again be hosting leagues throughout the 2024 season.

School grades are based on the 2023-2024 School Year. However, for Fall Ball 2024, we transition age groups. Fall Ball age groups are based on the 2024-2025 school year. So INCOMING 5th graders in the Fall will move up to the 5th/6th division and INCOMING 7th graders in Fall will move up to the 7th/8th grade, etc...

Age/School grade is deteremined by the September 1st age group. Players that started school late, or skipped a grade may still play with their school grade cluster, with commissioner approval only.

For all levels 8th grade and below, 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 9th grade and older 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 2024 (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 2024 season. For all levels up through 8th grade, we have fully moved to the USA Baseball standard for all geographic divisions. All bats must have a USA Baseball Stamp. At the 7th/8th grade Level, BBCOR bats are okay as well. (Bats with USSSA 1.15 BPF certification are NOT ALLOWED)

For the 9th grade and older divisions, all bats must be BBCOR Certified.
