Some general notes on registration and which division to register for:

We do our best to provide an experience that suits players of all abilities and ages, if you have any questions regarding which division to sign up for or how your team will be determined, please don't hesitate to contact us and ask.  We also strive to maintain lean roster numbers in order to help provide as much playing time as possible for everyone.  In order to to continue to do this we need to expand and create teams as necessary and that requires managers and coaches - We encourage anyone who is able and willing to step up and help us out.  Anyone on the coaching staff or otherwise in the dugout or on the field during games or practices is required to submit a PA State Police Background Check for review by the board.

 

Players Age 10-12 (As of May 1, 2016) - Must register for Major League.  If you were already in the Major League in 2015 and you would like to switch teams, please select 'Enter Draft' on the registration form.  All players new to the AIYBL must also select 'Enter Draft'.  10 Yr Olds may also register to play in the AAA division.

 

Players Age 9 - May register for the Major League this year; however there is no guarantee of being drafted onto a team.  9 Yr olds not on a Major League Team full time in 2016 will be eligible to be called up during the regular season and may play for any number of different teams throughout the year.  These players will again enter the Major League Draft next year.

 

Players Age 7-9 - May register for the AAA Minor (10 & Under) Division.  Pitching in this division is all Kid Pitch.

 

Players Age 6-8 - May register for the the AA Minor (8 & Under) Division.  Pitching in this division is all Coach Pitch.

 

Players Age 4-6 Will register for the Rookie League.  Registration not yet open for this division.

 

TEAMS:  Major League team rosters are all determined through the draft.  There are no automatic ways or other loopholes in which to get on a major league team outside of being the manager's child(ren).  

Minor League Teams are formed on a "Neighborhood, or Play with Your Buddies" approach as much as possible.  Minor Leaguers can sign up for any team; however getting on that team is not guaranteed based on how players are already on a given roster.  Minor League managers may set their own rosters.  There are no official AA to AAA affiliations, players coming out of AA are not necessarily on any certain team going forward.  We assign players to teams first based on team requests and if that cannot be accommodated players are assign based on roster numbers and needs.  The same holds true for all players new to the AIYBL.  This approach has served us well and we plan to stick with it for the 2016 season.

 

Again, if there are any questions - please don't hesitate to ask.  We're here to help.
