The CYA Complex
The CYA Sports Complex is located at 550 Easton Street, Ronkonkoma NY (click here to view complex) . It is adjacent to the Duffield Elementary School. The complex consists of 11 fields, 2 grass 60', 4 skin 60', 1 grass 75', 1 skin 75', 1 grass 90' and 2 40' fields. It has a fully stocked concession stand where you can get drinks, hot dogs, pretzels, bagels, coffee etc and is open during tournaments and throughout the summer. The main building of the complex houses 2 new bathrooms and in indoor batting cage for our teams. The complex is handicap accessible.
There is absolutely no soft toss allowed against any fences within the complex regardless of the type of ball being used. There are soft toss nets located throughout the facility. Damage caused by soft tossing will be the responsibility of the team and the league they are associated with. CYA has the right to remove teams from the complex for failing to comply with this rule.
When visiting the complex we ask that you park in marked stalls only. Vehicles parked in unmarked stalls are subject to being towed at the owners expense. Cars parked outside of marked locations impede the ability of emergency vehicles from entering the facility and our ability to move equipment around the complex to prepare fields. There is additional parking behind Duffield Elementary school. When parking along Easton street you may not park on the sidewalk and must not straddle or park over the white line, your car will be ticketed. We ask that you do not park directly next to the entrances to the complex as it makes it extremely difficult to enter and exit the complex.
Local laws and regulations prohibit the use of any type of barbecue usage by general public on CYA complex grounds.

The snack stand is located on the west side of the complex building directly across from the farms field #5. It has all your favorite foods and is open on game days Monday to Friday from 6 - 8 PM and Saturdays from 830 am till 300pm. All proceeds from purchase made at the snack stand are use to support the league.
