Back Yard Ball


There is also interest in some fall ball games.  We will put out an interest list for this and see where we are at.  This will be dependent upon numbers.  At this point I envision pickup games on either Saturday morning or Sunday afternoon.  (Majority determines.)  This would be no cost to players.






To register in the camps and express interest in pick-up games go to our website at in the upper right corner to register.


Any questions email


T-Shirts…will be ordered by August 29th, so to get yours you must register by then.


Thank you, Dana Leikness, OYS President


2016 Parent Volunteer Expectations

Our program fees are set to cover the operating expenses of the program. Additionally, we have
downsized the fundraising efforts; however we need to ensure that all families are part of the program’s
success and development. In the past many of our parents have done their fair share, if not more, in
supporting the program in our fundraising efforts, such as field clean up and the June tournament.
However, often it has been 30% of the families doing 70% of the volunteering.

U10, U12, U14 players are responsible for earning three (3) credits or five (5) credits per family. Squirts, U8 and High School families shall earn two (2) credits. Credits can be earned by participating in the following activities:

-- 3 credits for head coach
-- 3 credits for a 3 hour shift at the Tournament (May 29-May 31)
-- 5 credits Tournament Committee (spend most of weekend at park)
-- 2 credits for 2 hour shift for Field Clean Up Day

--2 credits for 2 hour shift for the clothing drive.

Additional credits for ideas you may have that raise funds for the program such as corporate

sponsorships, leading a fundraising campaign, or something out of the box -- just ask Dana.

You may opt out of this expectation by paying $100 (a player) or $150 (a family) during registration.

We will continue to communicate on this program. You will need to determine at registration whether 
or not you will participate or opting out of the program. If you have any questions, please email
