OAYL Philosophy

Orwigsburg Area Youth League (OAYL) is a T-Ball organization open to boys & girls residing in the greater Orwigsburg/Blue Mountain School District area.  The intent of OAYL is to introduce the game of baseball to youths by teaching the very basics of the sport and the importance of good sportsmanship, all while making sure it is done while having fun!

Our league predominantly consists of 5 & 6 year old boys & girls.  We generally do accept some older 4 year olds provided a parent is willing to be at least an Assistant Coach.  We also accept 7 year olds who may not be quite yet ready for pitched leagues.  For more info, please see "Age Eligibility Chart"under Handouts / Info link or contact a league representative.

 

It is important to note that OAYL T-Ball is a completely independent organization.  Although we are generally considered a feeder program to Orwigsburg Little League and Orwigsburg Areas Girls Softball, we are NOT affiliated with either.  We also have NO geographical residency requirements, although almost all of our activities take place in Orwigsburg Borough.

 

Registration

Updated 01/19/15

In-person Registration will be held sometime in February.  However, ONLINE REGISTRATION IS AVAILABLE NOW!!!!

ONLINE IS THE PREFERRED METHOD

To make things easier for you, we now offer ONLINE PAYMENTS!!!!

There is a $1 transaction fee associated with that to offset the costs OAYL incurs to offer this service.  However, if you still wish to pay by cash or check, those payments are to be mailed to our PO Box or hand-delivered.

 

Registration Fees

Updated 01/19/15

Our fees are the same as last year (the only difference being a $1 transaction fee for online payments).  Please select one option for each child participating (A, B or C for the First Child; D or E for each subsequent child):

 

First Child

            Option A:         $50 Fee

            Option B:         $30 Fee + $30 Fundraiser (3 Lotto Calendars) = $60

            Option C:         $70 Fundraiser (7 Lotto Calendars)

 

Subsequent Child

            Option D:         $20 Fee

            Option E:          $30 Fundraiser (3 Lotto Calendars)

 

ALL MONEY (including fundraiser portion) is due at time of registration. 

 

ONLINE PAYMENTS ARE NOW ACCEPTED!!!

You can pay online using a major credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express) or your PayPal account.  All online transactions are subject to a $1 transaction fee to offset the costs OAYL incurs for offering this service (3.9% + $0.30 for each transaction).

 

However, if you prefer to pay by Cash, Check or Money Order, please make payable to: "OAYL" and mail registration fees to:

OAYL

PO Box 72

Orwigsburg, PA 17961

 

Or, you may bring fees to In-person Registration.

 

Players are NOT eligible to participate until appropriate payments are made.

 

Coaches Wanted!!

Updated 01/19/15

As you can imagine, we are a high-turnover league.  As such, we are ALWAYS looking for parents willing to be head coaches and assistant coaches.  If you are considering either, please check the appropriate box on your child's registration form or email Brian Baldwin at bbaldwin@benesch.com.  We are still determining which head coaches will be returning.  However, we are always looking for more Assistant Coaches.

 

Please note that all assistant and head coaches and volunteers must be willing to consent to a criminal background check and must be willing to provide additional personal information (driver's license info, etc.).

 

All accepted coaches will receive a uniform shirt and hat for wear during the games.  To offset the coach uniforms costs (~$20 for shirt & hat), we request a $5 donation per assistant coach.  This is a request, and is NOT MANDATORY.  You can include this donation with your online registration payment.

Please note that we are not affiliated with either Orwigsburg Little League or Orwigsburg Area Girls Softball.  Although most of our kids "graduate" to these two, outstanding leagues, we are an independent organization relying on our own funding sources.  Being independent also means our kids are not subject to strict rules regarding residency or age (within safe reason). 

Every kid that wants to play deserves to play!
