Welcome to WHC Youth Baseball/Softball League
COVID 19 Update: Spring Recreational Baseball and Softball Programs Canceled
Following updated guidance from Howard County Recreation and Parks (HCRP), as well as the State of Maryland, the WHCYBSL Board has determined we cannot safely offer our traditional spring recreational baseball and softball programs. Full refunds are being provided to all spring recreational registrants.
Recognizing many families will want to resume recreational sports when conditions permit such activities, the WHCYBSL Board is now beginning to consider how clinics and/or “pick-up” games could be offered later in the summer at a nominal cost. We will share with you details on those plans later in the month as details regarding reopening of recreational activities are provided by HCRP and the State of Maryland.
With regards to our travel baseball and softball programs, we are continuing to monitor the emerging reopening guidelines and anticipate those teams may resume practices and game play later in the summer in consultation with each team’s families. At this point in time, travel teams are effectively paused through June 1st.
We will continue to make appropriate determinations about activities consistent with emerging guidance. Overall, our top priority remains the safety of your children and the community as a whole before we start up any of these programs.
Western Howard County Youth Baseball & Softball League (WHCYBSL) is an all-volunteer organization managed by a Board of Directors. Along with our parent-volunteer partners, we aspire to provide children with the opportunity to have positive baseball and softball experiences and strive to be the preferred youth sports program in Howard County.
We offer baseball and softball in the spring and fall emphasizing core values such as self-esteem, teamwork, fairness, fun and sportsmanship to all our players while learning the rules of the game.
