The Hazlet Youth Athletic League (HYAL) is a 501c3 non-profit youth sports program serving the children of the
Township of Hazlet from the ages of 5 through 16. 
HYAL was formed in 1957 by a group of families to provide the children with a safe and fun environment to play Baseball.
Over time we have added a number of other sports in the pursuit of helping the children become well rounded
adults by learning teamwork, sense of community, discipline and hard work.
We currently have programs for children in Baseball, Softball, Football, Cheerleading, boys and girls Basketball and Wrestling. 
The Hazlet Hawks Program is a building block for Hazlet Middle School and Raritan High School sports and will continue to be for years to come.

      We offer:  

  • Organized Babe Ruth Recreation Baseball/Softball program
  • USABL/Babe Ruth Travel Baseball program
  • AYF Football program
  • AYC Cheer program
  • Boys and Girls Recreation Basketball Leagues
  • Boys and Girls Mid-Monmouth and Central Jersey Travel Basketball Leagues
  • Wrestling program that has teams in two leagues
    • The Mid-Jersey league which is a 6th grade and under program, we place a Varsity and J.V. teams in this league
    • The Jersey Shore Junior Wrestling League, which is an 8th grade and under league.

HYAL Membership is open to players residing in the Township of Hazlet.
Our program operates from registration fees we collect from participant families, fund raisers and donations from local businesses.
The HYAL does not receive a monetary budget or financial allowance from the Hazlet Township Board of Education,
Hazlet Township Property Taxes, Hazlet Township Recreation or the Township of Hazlet.
Each year HYAL also provides eight scholarships to High School Graduates who have participated in our sports programs.
Our Board Members, Sports Commissioners, Snack Bar Commissioners, Team Managers, and Coaches are all VOLUNTEERS
who provide a safe and fun environment to teach good sportsmanship and respect for their fellow players and
help the children learn the rules and strategies of their sport.

Please join us at a Membership meeting as all are welcome and we are always in need of volunteers. 
Our kids are our future; together we can make a difference for all the children if we all volunteer a little time. 
More hands make for lighter work.
