Spring 2020 Registration Open

Happy New Year All!

The Salem Youth Baseball League (SYBL) has officially opened softball and baseball registration for the spring 2020 season.   Upon registering, your children can participate in the SYBL's winter practice sessions held at the Salem Elementary School gym and MPR. 

Starting the week of January 13th, SYBL has reserved the gym on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, for pitchers & catchers (one evening each for baseball & softball).  On Sundays there will be sessions for all levels of softball and baseball.  We're currently in the process of finalizing the details of the winter practice sessions and plan to disseminate this information very soon via the SYBL website, SYBL Facebook page, league email from returning players and the school's "Wednesday folder".

If your child hasn't played baseball or softball before or played in the past but you're uncertain if your child wants to play baseball or softball this coming spring, then I encourage you to register now/early and take advantage of the winter practice sessions. 

By registering now and participating in the winter practices, your child can get out of the house for few hours (at least once a week) during the winter months, get a little exercise, socialize with friends, have fun while receiving baseball/softball instruction to help them improve their skill level.  

If your child is enjoying themselves and having fun, then simply do nothing, as they're already registered for the spring session.  However, if prior to the league assessments or tryout date (in a few months), your child indicates that they don't wish to play baseball or softball during in the spring season, then we can issue you a refund.  This makes it a win-win situation.
For any parents wanting to assist at the winter sessions or planning to manage/coach baseball or softball during the spring, please indicate your interest in volunteering upon registering.  Little League Baseball of American mandates that all volunteers must complete a background check. Upon indicating your interest in volunteering for the SYBL (during the registration process), our Safety Officer Mike Bednarz, can send you a link for the background check via email.  

Additionally, if you would like to volunteer for a vacant SYBL Board position or to assist the SYBL in any capacity then please email us at [email protected]

Thank you and we look forward to seeing soon!
