Registration is now open for Start Smart Baseball and the 8U Skills & Drills Clinic. Click HERE to register. If you don't have an account already, you will be asked to create one before registering.
Start Smart Baseball
Update: The BYA Start Smart program is currently full and registration is now closed. If you'd like to be added to the waiting list please email us at email@example.com.
The Start Smart Baseball Program is offered to BYA players 3-5 years old through an exclusive partnership with the National Association of Youth Sports. The program prepares children and their parents for organized tee-ball, baseball and softball. This 7-week Child/Parent program will meet 1 hour per week on Thursday evenings from 6:30pm – 7:30pm at the State Street Elementary School gymnasium. The program starts on February 7, 2019 and ends on March 21, 2019. All players will receive their own bat & ball set, glove and Start Smart t-shirt. Cost of the program is $50 per player and all registered players will receive a $20 discount towards their 2019 BYA regular season registration.

8U Skills & Drills Clinic
BYA's 8U Skills & Drills Clinic is a 6-week player development program designed to refresh and polish player skills in preparation for the upcoming 8U spring baseball season. Focus areas will include throwing, catching, fielding, hitting and situational drills. Participants are expected to come to each session with a willingness to work hard and learn more about the game. We keep things instructional and fun, but please be aware that this is not a once-a-week, indoor recess program. After 6 weeks of conditioning, we expect noticeable improvement in all participants. Indoor practices are held on Tuesdays at the State Street Elementary school gymnasium and will last 90 minutes (6:30pm - 8:00pm). Sessions will start on February 5, 2019 and end on March 12, 2019. Cost of the program is $25 per player. This program is open to all current BYA players with birthdays between 9/1/2010 - 8/31/2012.
10U Spring Training (Registration opens 1/1/2019)
It's time to shake off the rust from a long off-season and get ready for the regular season. Our 10U Spring Training session is designed to prepare our 10U team for the new challenges they'll face in kid-pitch baseball. We'll be focusing primarily on situational drills, base-running and pitching. The program consists of seven 90-minute sessions on Tuesdays & Thursdays (6:30pm - 8:00pm) at the State Street Elementary gymnasium starting on March 19, 2019 and ending on April 11, 2019. This program is available only to registered BYA 10U players and is offered free of charge.
