Baseball and T-ball

YMCA Youth Sports Leagues are designed for children of all ages and stress development of skills, teamwork, sportsmanship, and positive competition in a fun environment.  All participants will play equal amounts of time during the games and will have the opportunity to play at all different positions throughout the season.

YMCA Baseball offers a non-competitive environment for children so they can have the opportunity to be successful while learning the game. Sportsmanship and fun are emphasized in this league. Participants are placed on teams and will have an hour of practice during the week as well as one hour games. The Y will provide team T-shirts and hats. A good pair of athletic shoes or cleats and baseball glove are required. Baseball pants and safety cup are required for ages 8 and up.

Age Groups

This sport is for boys and girls ages 3 to 12 years old.  The children are grouped together in divisions that are broken down into 2-year increments.  

3-4 year old sports are instructional clinics that introduce children to a sport and prepare them to play at the league level.

Age limits may vary by branch, so check with your local YMCA for league details.


Games are held during the week and on Saturdays for length of eight weeks.

Game times will vary by location.

Some travel to another Y location for games can be expected. 


Practices are usually held a minimum of once per week up to a maximum of twice per week.  Practice times are set by the coaches and are usually held during the week in the evenings between 5:00-8:00 p.m.


We are always looking for energetic moms and dads to be volunteer coaches and help the Y develops healthy confident youth. Please inform the program director if you wish to be a volunteer coach.

Recommended Equipment
