It was a great day of tryouts on Saturday. Thank you to all who made it such a special event for our CSYAA baseball and softball family including coaches, CSYAA Board members, volunteers, Coach Lopez and members of his CS Baseball team.

Friday Night Lights Softball Starts Feb 12

All CSYAA softball girls and coaches,

The TKO girls softball team through its partnership with CSYAA will be conducting weekly clinics for girls from the ages 6-12 for the next 6 weeks weather permitting. Come out and learn everything from conditioning, basic fundamentals, drills, batting techniques, fielding and other exciting things from coaches that have taken our China Spring TKO girls successfully to the next level of competition.

Friday Night Lights is free to attend and for those coaches looking to add to their game plan, join us and feel free to ask questions. Each Friday Night Lights starts at 6pm and should end around 8pm. Please arrive close to 5:45pm. All clinics are held at the CSYAA Fields located on Jackson Lane.  

Please dress girls accordingly (layers). Each child will need to provide their own glove, bat, batting helmet with facemask/chin strap and proper cleats. There will be several TKO coaches and players to help mentor many of the upcoming young athletes. Please arrive as close to 5:45pm as possible so all players can stretch properly.  If you have any questions contact Chris Shoots at shootschris@yahoo.com

See you at Friday Night Lights!

Thanks for a great basketball season

 

Congratulations to all who helped make this a successful 2015/2016 basketball season. Championship Saturday was a huge success. We had competitive games in each age division. More importantly we witnessed great examples of effort, sportsmanship and teamwork which are at the core of our mission at CSYAA. A special thanks to LaTonya Fields, our VP for Basketball, for all her hard work this season. Thank you as well to John McDonald, Mark Outlaw, Nils Holgersson and others who planned this week long tournament involving all 37 teams from the six age divisions in our league. Also, CSYAA appreciates all the time our coaches, volunteers, families and board members donated to help develop our young athletes and provide them with a great basketball season and tournament!

Trey Oakley, CSYAA President

 

Baseball and Softball Tryouts Feb. 13, Feb. 20 make ups

 

Welcome to another great year of baseball and softball in China Spring. Whether this is your first year, or you are returning for another season, we are excited you are part of the China Spring Little League family! Tryouts are an important part of our league. A “Tryouts FAQ page” is located on our website at CSYAA.com, in the download forms tab. The following is important info and the tryout schedule:

Every player must tryout. This includes children of coaches and assistants who must still be ranked at tryouts, even though they will be assigned to the team their parent coaches. Players who do not tryout will be assigned to a team after the draft has occurred. What does that mean? Make plans to tryout!

The ages assigned to your child(ren) when you registered are set by the Little League Age Determination Chart, not CSYAA. There have been big changes this year to the Little League Age Determination Chart on the boys side. This is why boys are trying out by age, not leagues. Every league connected with Little League International is in the same position we are at CSYAA, so please be patient as we work to sort this out.

If your athlete plans to try out for multiple divisions, he/she will only tryout once. Coaches from other divisions will be at tryouts for players that might seek to draft into higher division. If parent/athlete doesn’t want to be considered for an upper division they might be eligible for, this should be stated in writing prior the draft. But a player must be drafted/selected by a coach in higher division if they want to play up.

For example: Joe is 8 but Little League age lists him at 9 because of his birth date. Joe will try out with 9 year olds. Modified and Minors coaches will be there. If Joe or his guardians absolutely don't want him to play Minors (upper division) they must contact CSYAA before draft. If Joe wants to play Minors, a coach from that division must draft Joe. If Joe is not drafted by Minors coach, his name will go to Modified (8 and 9 year olds this year). Joe’s guardians can verify his Little League age by what is listed on registration receipt or email csyaa@llmail.net to verify. Joe's example would be the same if he was 10 but Little League considered him 11 - it would just be between Minors and Majors. 

 

T-Ball

There are no tryouts for T-ball. Teams will be selected and parents/guardians will be notified of coach.
