Middle School Baseball and Softball Information

IMPORTANT CORRECTION TO INFORMATION PREVIOUSLY STATED IN THIS ARTICLE: 6th Graders are also welcome to tryout for the baseball team along with the 7th and 8th graders!
Middle School Baseball Tryouts: Saturday February 18th from 10:00-Noon at GHS: 6th-8th grade

Middle School Softball Tryouts: Sunday February 19th from 1:00-3:00 at GHS: 6th-8th grade
Like many school districts in our area, Graham Local Schools does not offer school sponsored baseball or softball teams. In order for the middle school student athletes of our school district to have a chance to participate and compete with their classmates against other teams from neighboring school districts, GYAA has partnered with the varsity baseball and softball programs in our school district to offer this opportunity.  The middle school baseball program is open to all 6th, 7th, and 8th graders in the Graham School District.  This year we will be forming one baseball team and the team will be selected after a mandatory open tryout to be held on Saturday February 18th.  The middle school softball program is open to all 6th, 7th, and 8th, graders in the Graham School District.  This year we will be forming two softball teams and these teams will be selected after a mandatory open tryout to be held on Sunday February 19th.  The time frame for of all of these teams' schedules will closely mirror the high school baseball and softball spring schedules. Practices will begin in late February with games beginning in late March.  The game schedule will be wrapped up by the first week in May.  Everyone who participates on any of these middle school teams is welcomed and encouraged to also register or tryout for a recreational league team, travel team, or acme team of your choice for the summer season.  The spring middle school season will not overlap with the summer rec and travel season in our association so please consider doing both. 

Exciting News for 2017 Softball Season!!!!!

We are excited to announce that this year our recreational softball teams will be participating in the Champaign County League and we will return to offering three different age divisions for our recreational softball program.  Our coach pitch league will now only be for 7 and 8 year olds and our fastpitch leagues will include two divisions with our 9 and 10 year olds playing in the younger division and our 11, 12, and 13 year olds participating in the older division.  These teams will be participating against teams in our own association as well as teams from Kingscreek and Mechanicsburg and potentially teams from North Lewisburg and Urbana.  We look forward to being able to offer these divisions that allow us to group our girls in age groups that are similar to most of the other organizations in our area.  Please contact board members Jeremy Olson or Mark Traylor if you have questions regarding our recreational softball leagues.    

We will also be offering one travel softball team from our organization this year.  This year our travel team will be offered in the 12u division.  Currently plans are being made to offer open gyms on Sunday evenings in February and then a travel team tryout will be held during the 1st week of March.  This team's schedule will be very similar the GYAA 10u travel softball teams from 2015 and 2016.  All 11 and 12 year old girls who are interested in trying out for the travel team should wait to complete their registration until after travel team selections are completed.  Team selections will be completed before the end of our recreational league registration period. Please contact board member Mark Traylor if you have questions regarding the 12u travel team.  Open gyms for 12u softball will be offered on Sunday February 12th, 19th, and 26th from 6:30 to 8:00 in the elementary gym.  These are open to all 12u girls regardless of interest in participating on the travel team.  A mandatory tryout will be held on Sunday March 5th for any girl wanting to tryout for the 12u travel softball team.
