2019 Board of Directors Nominations & Elections
It's election time again for Ixonia Youth Baseball and we are in need of nominations for individuals who would like to contribute at the organizational level and help IYB improve and grow for our players and their families.
This year we have two directors who are at the end of their terms but have openings for up to five positions per our by-laws. In past years we have been operating with a smaller than desired board and we'd like to carry the full seven spots if possible. The board members who's terms are expiring are Kevin Kendellen & Sarah Nissen.
This organization operates solely on the dedication and effort of our volunteer families, and without this kind of commitment, Ixonia Youth Baseball would not be what it is today. We are also quickly approaching a shift in the families that have been involved for years as their players age out of the program and we are looking for the next generation to step in and keep it going.
A term for the IYB Board is 2 years with monthly pre-season meetings beginning after the holidays and various in-season commitments once games begin.
Elections will take place at the family picnic this coming Saturday evening with the adult family members casting votes for the nominated individuals.
If you have any questions pertaining to the IYB Board of Directors or would like to express interest in a nomination, please contact any of the current board members or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

A Reminder About Field Use With Games
With games now fully underway, please remember the following regarding field usage:
1. Games take priority over practices. If a field is lined and game ready for that evening, practices are to be held elsewhere in the park.
2. Practice times & assignments remain in effect when games are not scheduled for a specific field and time. Teams are not able to move to another field unless the coaches have previously coordinated the practice time switch.
3. Please plan ahead and look at the upcoming game schedule for potential field use requirements.
Important Information: Little League Bats
JCYB has implemented new rules regarding which types of bats are permitted to be used at the Little League level. If you are looking to purchase your player a bat this year, please be aware that the bat must be stamped with the USA logo as shown below:
This is a similar rule that many other leagues and organizations have implemented across the country in the interest of player safety. Please note that no changes have been made to the Pony or PeeWee bat rules at this time.
